Honour Your Wives

Imam Baqir

[a] said: “He who takes a woman (marries) should certainly
respect her, because the wife of anyone of you is a means of your pleasure,
so the one who marries a woman should not spoil or disgrace her (by
disregarding her respectable rights).”
Bihar-ul-Anwar, vol. 103, p. 224

Imam Amir ul Mu’mineen Ali [a] said: “In any condition conciliate the
wives, and talk with them warmly and through kind words, thereby, they may
change their actions into good ones.”
Bihar-ul-Anwar, vol. 103, p. 223(g18012007) (w26042007)

The Holy Prophet [s] said: “He who has two wives and does not treat justly
in dividing his self and his wealth between them, he will be raised on the
Resurrection Day while he is chained in punishment and half of his body is
not straight until he enters Hell.”
Bihar-ul-Anwar, vol. 7, p. 214

Imam Musa ibn Ja’far [a] narrated from his father [a] from the Holy
Prophet [s] who said:
“However much the Faith of a man increases, his regard
for women increases.”
Bihar-ul-Anwar, vol. 103, p. 228(09022007)

Imam Amir ul Mu’mineen Ali [a] said: “The worst man is he who restricts
his household.”
Nur-ul-Absar Shablanjy

Imam Sadiq [a] said: “He who abandons marriage for the fear of the
expenses imposed on him, mistrusts Allah, Almighty and Glorious.”
Man La Yahduruhul Faqih, vol. 3, p. 385(g23042007)

Imam Sadiq [a] said that when Uthman ibn Maz’un’s wife announced to the Prophet [s] that her husband was always busy fasting and praying day and night without paying attention to his life and wife, the Prophet [s] went unto his house and found him praying. When ‘Uthman finished his prayer, the Messenger of Allah [s] said: “O’ ‘Uthman, Allah has not sent me for monkery but appointed me for a fluent, easy religion (which protects the rights of
the body and soul). I fast, keep up prayers, and associate with my family.
Then, he who likes my way and my creed, must follow my way of life, my Sunnah; and, verily, marriage is of my Sunnah.”
AI-Kafi, vol. 5, p.494 (06112007)

The Holy Prophet [s] said: “There is no (believing) woman who gives her
husband a glass of water but it will be rewarded her better than the worship
of one year during which she fasts on days and keeps vigil during the
nights.”
Wasa’il-ush Shi’ah, vol. 20, p. 172 (20062008)

Imam Amir ul Mu’mineen Ali [a] said: “The Jihad (fighting in the way of
Allah) of a woman is to afford pleasant company to her husband.”
Nahjul-Balagha, saying No. 494 (26072008)
