Honour Your Wives

Imam Sadiq [a] said: "Verily, one of the blessings of a woman is the inexpensiveness of her dower, while one of her bad omens is the heaviness of her dower." Man La Yahdurulul Faqih, vol. 3, p. 387 17.Imam Amir ul Mu'mineen [a] said: "Do not make the women's dowers heavy, because it creates enmity." Wasa'il-ush Shi'ah, vol. 21, p. 253 1.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 2.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) 3.Imam Rida [a] narrated from his fathers from Imam Amir ul Mu'mineen Ali [a] from the Holy Prophet [s] who said: "Woe to the woman who makes her husband angry, and happy is the woman whose husband is pleasantly contented with her." Bihar-ul-Anwar, vol. 8, p. 310(21012007) 4.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 5.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."

Sura al-Room, No. 30, Verse 21(09032007) 9.When the Holy Prophet (p.b.u.k.) received some information from 'Umm Salamah about 'Uthman ibn Maz'un, he set out towards his followers and, (addressing some of them), said: "Do you keep away from (your) wives? Surely, I go to women, I eat food during the day, and I sleep at night. So, he who turns away from my way of life is not of me." Bihar-ul-Anwar, vol. 93, p. 73(17032007) 10.Imam Sadiq [a] said: "He who abandons marriage for the fear of the expenses imposed on him, mistrusts Allah, Almighty and Glorious."

Bihar-ul-Anwar, vol. 103, p. 219(g18052007) 12..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) Wife and Her Dower 14.The Holy Prophet [s] said: "The bad omen of a woman is her expensive dower and her ill temper."
