All praise be to Allah.
An ideal wife in Islam has these beautiful characters.

She is The Patient one:

The woman who remains patient in all circumstances and situation and understands her husband, and never whines or moans over small issues. She doesn’t complain or she is not dissatisfied with her husband or marriage. When some trouble or affliction hits her, she turns to Allah Almighty for help.

She is The Protector:

The woman who protects her chastity and her husband’s wealth when he is far away. She doesn’t mingle with other men and doesn’t gossip. As a clever and wise wife, she knows, respects and stays within the boundaries of his gheerah (protective jealousy).

When he returns, she runs into his arms, as if she was anticipating for his return. She allows him time to relax before anything and does not burden him with the day’s problems, but listens attentively to his needs and does her best to take his tiredness away.

She gives much love:

This woman adores her husband, beautifies herself for him, smell nice for him. She is characterized by shyness and modesty, glancing with love in her eyes, only for her husband.

She is The Good Do-er:

She has the excellent reputation in society. She is the kindest and courteous. She is good to her in-laws and neighbors. She respects her relatives and never backbites.

She is Content:

This woman is content about with what Allah has given her. She chooses to be happy with what she has instead of complaining about all the things she doesn’t have. She is thankful for, however, her husband takes care of her, for every morsel of food, every cloth she has and the house where they dwell. She makes her gratefulness known to him in words and action and thus, soothes her husband’s heart.

As the Prophet (peace be upon him) advised, she looks at those less fortunate than herself in the material world. She then becomes even more thankful to her Lord and her Husband for all that she does have.

She is The Pious:

She spends much of her time in Dhikr of Allah and makes the environment in the house as that of the most righteous. She encourages he children and husband to engage in religious things. As the Prophet (peace be upon him) advised, she looks at those more pious than her in the religious sense and strives to progress further in piety and knowledge.

She smiles always:

A wise wife never frowns. She is always smiling and uplifts the atmosphere around her. She always talks gently, choosing the sweetest of words. The ideal wife never raises her voice while talking to her husband.

If her husband is angry with her for some reason and shouts at her, she tries her best not to answer back but instead maintains a dignified silence. She understands that a man by nature, loves to be the ‘king of the jungle’, wanting to prove himself right, it makes him feel good. Two seconds of patients from the wife can go a long way…

The Prophet (peace be upon him) said; “I guarantee a house on the outskirts of Jannah for the one who gives up arguing even if he/she is in the right…” [Tirmidhi]

May Allah bless all the married couples.


Praise be to Allah.


The Muslim woman must know that she is obliged to wear hijaab and observe proper Islamic hijaab at all times. It is not permissible for a woman to make a wanton display of herself (tabarruj). Tabarruj is a major sin for which the one who does it deserves the wrath and punishment of Allah.  A woman, as the saying goes, is a jewel, and when she is shown to people and makes a wanton display of herself she loses her value.

So I advise every Muslim woman to adhere to proper Islamic hijaab, which is pleasing to Allah and is an act of obedience to Him, and is a means of Allah guiding His slave and making things easier for him.


With regard to marriage, it may be obligatory if a man or woman longs for marriage and fears falling into immoral ways. It is also the Sunnah of the Prophets (peace be upon them).

Allah says (interpretation of the meaning):

“And indeed We sent Messengers before you (O Muhammad), and made for them wives and offspring”

[al-Ra’d 13:38]

There is a difference between a Muslim woman looking for a husband and her mixing with and talking to men for that purpose, and meeting by accident a man who she thinks is a potential husband. The former is contrary to modesty, for a woman is required to be of modest character and shy, which is an adornment and beauty for women; the virgin is the epitome of modesty as it says in the hadeeth of Abu Sa’eed al-Khudri (may Allah be pleased with him): “The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) used to be more shy than the virgin in her seclusion, and if he disliked something it would be known from his face.”

Narrated by al-Bukhaari, 5751; Muslim, 2320

Muslim Woman :

A woman can do something better than that, which is to make du’aa’ asking Allah to give her a good and righteous husband. Du’aa’ is one of the best things with which a Muslim may equip himself and the best way in which a Muslim may seek to meet his needs. She can also speak to some of her Muslim sisters whose religious commitment and honesty she trusts to tell her of someone who can tell a young Muslim man who wants to get married about a Muslim girl. This is better than her doing something that is contrary to modesty.


Undoubtedly the one who told you to take off the hijab and that that is better than wearing it is wrong. How can a woman give up her religious commitment and hijab and ignore something that Allah has enjoined upon her and said that if she forsakes it then she will deserve the wrath and punishment of Allah and will not be granted His support?

The Muslim woman must adhere to this virtue which many Muslim women have forsaken, for it is the symbol of the Muslim woman, a sign of her commitment, sincere faith and piety.

I advise every Muslim women to fear Allah and to adhere to hijab, and Allah will help her and make her life easier for her. And Allah is the One Whose help we seek.

And Allah knows best.
