Salaam and Greetings of Peace:
I recently came across this list of five hadiths, or sayings of the Prophet (SAW), which give advice to Muslim husbands on good behavior during marriage, and thought I would share it, since they would apply to all husbands of any religion.
Advice to Husbands
Jabir narrated that the Prophet, peace be upon him, gave these instructions in his sermon during the Farewell Pilgrimage: “Fear God regarding women; for you have taken them [in marriage] with the trust of God.”
Narrated by Aisha, ‘God’s messenger said: “Among the believers who show most perfect faith are those who have the best disposition, and are kindest to their families.”’
Narrated by Abu Huraira, God’s messenger said: “The believers who show the most perfect faith are those who have the best disposition and the best of you are those who are best to their wives.”
Aisha has related that the Holy Prophet, peace be upon him, would enter the house with a pleasing disposition and a smile on his lips.
Narrated by Al-Aswad: “I asked Aisha, `What did the Prophet, peace be upon him, do at home?’ Aisha said, `He used to work for his family and when he heard the call for the prayer, he would go out.’”
