Wife And Pleasing Her Husband

Imam al-Baqir (‘a) said: "No intercessor for a woman, on the Reckoning Day, is more effective with Allah than the consent of her husband."

Imam Abi-l-Hasan-ir-Ridha’ (‘a) narrates from Imam Amir ul Mu'mineen ‘Ali (‘a) who said: The best women among you are those who have five qualities."

Amir ul Mu'mineen (‘a) was requested what those five were when he said:

  1. She is easy-going, obedient, humble, and economical to her husband.

  2. She is good tempered to him.

  3. She is cooperative and helpful to him in difficulties.

  4. Whenever her husband is angry or depressed, she does not rest until she finds him happy and pleased.

  5. When her husband is absent from her, she protects his belongings in his absence.

  6. Such a woman is an agent of the agents of Allah and the agent of Allah will not be disappointed, (she gains her correct hopes)."

Al-Kafi, vol. 5, p. 324

Imam as-Sadiq (‘a) said: "Any woman who spends the night while her husband is rightfully angry with her, her prayer is not accepted from her until he becomes pleased with her."
