Mental Abuse from Husband


Wednesday, 02 March 2022 08:41


Assalaamu ‘alaikum

Respected ‘Ulama

I would like to know what are the rights of a woman who is being mentally and verbally abused by her husband? 

Is it right for my husband to keep picking on my past and my parents, saying that they are faulty, and that they are old and set in their ways. If they are faulty, do I have to hear about it every day, whether we are arguing or not? 

Can a husband boss his wife if she doesn’t want to do something saying that she has to follow his rules and do as he says because he is the husband, the man of the house and does she have to have an explanation for everything? If she doesn’t want to do something or go somewhere does she have to give him her reason?

(Mother of Shaikh Nizaamuddeen Awliyaa [rahimahullah] – Part Five)

When Hazrat Shaikh Nizaamuddeen Awliyaa (rahimahullah) was sixteen years old, he went to Delhi to continue acquiring the knowledge of Deen. He remained in Delhi for approximately three to four years, and it was during this period that his respected mother passed away.

It is mentioned that prior to his mother passing away, every month, when the new moon would be sighted, Shaikh Nizaamuddeen (rahimahullah) would come to meet his mother, and on meeting her, he would honour her by kissing her feet (in a manner that did not resemble making sajdah to her).

On one occasion, when the new moon of Jumaadal Aakhirah was sighted, he came to meet his mother, as per his usual routine. However, on this occasion, after he kissed her feet, she asked him, “Next month, when the new moon is sighted, then whose feet will you kiss?” Hearing these words, Hazrat Shaikh Nizaamuddeen (rahimahullah) realized that his mother was indicating to him that her end was imminent.

The Immense Mercy of Allah Ta‘ala

Among the Banu Israaeel, there was a man who had committed the crime of murdering ninety-nine people. After killing ninety-nine people, he felt remorse in his heart and thus wished to repent and reform his life.

He thus approached some people and asked them to direct him to the greatest ‘Aalim of that place. In response, they guided him to a certain worshipper who had disassociated himself from the world and devoted himself to the ‘ibaadah of Allah Ta‘ala. On coming to the worshipper, the man said, “There is a person who murdered ninety-nine people. Is there any taubah for such a person?” The worshipper replied, “No, (there is no taubah for him).” When the man received this answer, he murdered the worshipper as well, thus increasing his total to one hundred murders!

However, the feeling of remorse and the urge to repent still persisted within his heart. Hence, he once again asked some people to direct him to the greatest ‘Aalim of that place. However, on this occasion, he was not directed to a mere worshipper but to a knowledgeable ‘Aalim.

(Adapted from the notes of the late Hakeem Muhammad Yusuf [rahimahullah] of Hekpoort as well as from Behishti Zewar and other sources)

Advices for Expectant Mothers

When a woman has conceived, then she should practice on the following:  

1. Abstain from all types of sins, especially watching television (whether it is movies or even video clips), eating haraam, listening to gheebah (backbiting) or making gheebah, etc. It is also important to abstain from all sins when breastfeeding.

2. Engage in reciting the Quraan Majeed and making zikr. Also listen to the recitation of the Quraan Majeed and zikr. It is recorded that Moulana Muhammad Yahya (rahimahullah), who is the father of Shaikhul Hadeeth, Moulana Muhammad Zakariyya (rahimahullah), had memorized approximately ½ a para of the Quraan Majeed while still breastfeeding. The reason for this was the excessive recitation of Quraan Shareef that he was exposed to.
