The foundation phase of a successful marriage:

Starting Point: Piety

The best example as a husband was Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alaihi wa sallam and the first quality we should emulate of his is his Taqwa.

When the wife of the Prophet sallallahu alaihi wa sallam, Aisha radhiallahu anha, was asked about the his behavior with her she started to weep and said, ‘One night he stood up (intending to offer the night prayer) and said, ‘O Aisha, let me be alone so that I may worship my Lord.’ He stood up, purified himself and continued to pray and weep until the ground became wet. Bilal came and made the Athan. When he saw the Prophet sallallahu alaihi wa sallam crying, he said, ‘O Messenger of Allah (why do) you cry, when Allah has forgiven your past and future sins?’ The Prophet sallallahu alaihi wa sallam replied, ‘(Then, for that) should I not be a thankful slave?’’ (Ibn Hibban)


This is one example that demonstrates the intensity of our Prophet sallallahu alaihi wa sallam's devotion to his Lord, his extreme piety and tremendous fear of Allah. Any man, who wishes to emulate him, should start by emulating his taqwa (piety).


It is taqwa which is the foundation for good manners and makes the fulfilling of the rights of others easy. If a man wants to be a good husband, he must fear Allah. If this fear influences his relationship with his wife, he fears what Allah may do to him if he harms her.


Someone asked, ‘O Hasan, I have a daughter. To whom do you think I should marry her?’ Hasan radhiallahu anhu said, ‘Marry her to (a man) who (fears Allah); for if he (truly fears Allah) and if he loves her he will honor her and (even) if he doesn't love her, he will never oppress or abuse her (because he fears Allah).’
