Duties of a wife to her husband.

After marriage, it is expected of a wife to treat her husband with endless love, affection, and respect. Although the world today is advocating for equality amongst men and women, does it mean men and women are the same? How should a wife conduct herself in her marriage? What are her duties that do not undermine her rights as a woman?


“Wives, submit yourselves to your own husbands as you do to the Lord. Ephesians 5:22
With all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another in love, eager to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. Ephesians 4:2-3

Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labor: If either of them falls down, one can help the other up. But pity anyone who falls and has no one to help them up. Also, if two lie down together, they will keep warm. But how can one keep warm alone. Ecclesiastes 4:9


“…So, the righteous women are obedient [to Allah and submissive to their husbands], and guard in [the husband’s] absence what Allah would have them guard [i.e., their chastity and the prestige and property of the husband] …” [Qur’an 4:34]

“They are your garments and you are their garments….” [Qur’an 2:187]
