Marriage is a sacred deed signed between two partners. But what are the conditions in that contract? And who gets the authority over the other one’s life? Does the husband have the right to forbid and allow everything? Does marriage erase the existence of the wife and make her just a slave to only obey and serve without discussions? Or does she have rights and claims that can’t be denied by anybody, even her husband?
In this video, Nouman Ali Khan talks about the violation of human relationships and how misinterpreting Islamic concepts can lead to fragile houses and marriage problems and unhappy life. Does the husband have the right to deny his wife from contacting her family? Her parents and siblings? From going outside or having some fresh air? And if he did so, shall she obey or refuse and revolt? Does revolting make her a sinner because Allah asked her to obey her husband? Marriage is about discussion and compromise and making sure that the other partner is happy and maintaining a healthy relationship inside and outside the house. To what extent shall the wife go to please her husband? And is it fine to cut-off her family and give up on her well and her freedom to make sure that her husband is happy and that she is not a sinner by disobeying him?
