Serving the husband and his family and vice-versa

السراج الوهاج في خدمة الأزواج

The shining lamp on serving the spouses

This Arabic treatise explores the issue of the wife serving her husband and his family and vice versa.

The treatise is divided into three sections:

  1. The practice of the Muslims females in the Prophetic era in relation to serving their husbands and families and undertaking household chores. Forty ḥadīths are outlined to highlight this, supplemented with a further twelve general ḥadīths on being obedient to the husband.
  2. The jurisprudential ruing on serving the husband and undertaking household chores based on the views of the four schools of thought.
  3. The practice of the Muslim husbands in the Prophetic era in relation to supporting their wives and families and undertaking household chores. This is supplemented with some ḥadīths regarding the rights of a wife.
