Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alaihi wa sallam showed husbands the best conduct with regards to wives:

1. Friends. Aeysha radhiallahu anha, the wife of the Prophet sallallahu alaihi wa sallam, narrates she used to play with her friends at the Prophet sallallahu alaihi wa sallam’s house.
When her girl friends used to see him, they would shy away. The Prophet sallallahu alaihi wa sallam used to send them in groups to play with her. (Muslim, 2:285)

2. Mild talk. Aeysha radhiallahu anha narrates that once a breeze exposed her dolls that were kept in an alcove. The Prophet sallallahu alaihi wa sallam asked what they were. She informed him they were her dolls. He noticed a strange horse with two wings and enquired what it was. She said it was a horse. The Prophet sallallahu alaihi wa sallam asked, ‘A winged horse?’ She said, ‘Didn’t you know that Sulaiman alaihis salaam’s horse had wings?’ The Prophet sallallahu alaihi wa sallam smiled so heartily that his molars were exposed. (Abu Dawood, 2:327)

3. Consideration. The Prophet sallallahu alaihi wa sallam’s always considered his first wife Khadijah radhiallahu anha’s friends after her demise, and always remembered them with gifts. (Seerat, 9:387)

4. Toleration. Once the Prophet sallallahu alaihi wa sallam was at the home of one of his wives when a servant brought a plate of food for him sent by another wife. The wife in whose home he was became so furious she hit the plate out of the servant’s hand. The plate fell and the food messed the floor. The Prophet sallallahu alaihi wa sallam tolerated this jealousy. He gathered the food and the broken pieces of plate. He then gave a plate from that home in exchange for the broken one. (Bukhari, 2:786)
