[Quote] The Sweetness of Īmān for the Woman by Shaykh Sulaymān ibn Salīmullāh al-Ruḥaylī

Shaykh al-Ruḥaylī:

There is the spiritual sweetness specifically for the women that the Prophet {صلى الله عليه وسلم} explained. He said, 

"If I was to command anyone to make prostration before another I would command the women to prostrate herself before her husband, because of his tremendous rights over her" (1) 

The women will not taste the sweetness of Īmān until she gives her husband his rights.

So the women, if she gives her husband his rights, in obedience to Allaah, carrying out the command of Allaah, she will taste the sweetness in her heart and that is the sweetness of Īmān.

And in regards to this affair, the Shay'aateen of man and jinn nowadays are trying to divert the women from this, and they whisper to her that she is equal to the man, and that her giving her husband his rights is weakness and humiliation and this is a tremendous mistake.

Rather the nobility of the women is to give her husband his rights in obedience to Allaah. She will taste in her heart a tremendous sweetness.

A women has her rights and her status and Islaam honoured her and the noble Muslim reveres her.

However her carrying out her husband's rights is from her nobility! It's not humiliation neither is it a deficiency nor oppression.
