Mujlisul Ulama Of South Africa
1 - The Husband As The Rular
"Men Are The Rulers Over Women Because Allah Has Bestowed Ranks To Some Of Them Above Others And Because They(Men) Spend Of Their Wealth ( For The Maintenance Of Women) "
(Surah Nisa :34 )
He Is in Charge Of Executing The Affairs And Operation Of The System Which Has Been Entrusted To Him.
Just As A Community Or A Nation Requires A Ruler For Proper And Efficient Functioning Of The Affairs Of Society
So Too Does The Home Unit Stand In Need Of A Ruler To Ensure That The Home Affairs Progress Smoothly And Correctly Along The Divinely-Ordained Pattern,
Direct By The Shariah. The Man In The House Has, Thus Been Appointed The Ruler Or Overseer.
While Islam Has Bestowed Many Rights To Women, The Quran-E-Hakeem Confirms His Superior Rank And Announce His Appointment As The Ruler Of Women.
His Appointment As The Ruler Of Women is Not A Licence For Misdirecting Authority.
He Elevated Rank is Not Permission For Violating, Denying And Neglecting The Rights (Huqooq) Which Islam Orders For Women And Children.
The Husband is Not Allowed To Adopt A Bullying Attitude. He Does Not Enjoy The Right To Impose On His Wife His Unlawful Wishes, Whims And Fancies Just As He Desire And In Anyway He Feels.
Rasool Allah PBUH Said :
" Everyone Of You Is A Shepherd And Everyone Of You Will Be Questioned About His Flock ".
The Husband is The Shepherd Of His Home. On The Day Of Qiyamah He Will Have To Answer In The Divine Court How He Treated His Flock.
" That Day Will Be A Day When A Man Will Flee From His Brother, His Mother, His Father, His Wife, And His Children. "
Ya Allah ! surely we have heard a preacher calling to the faith, saying: Believe in your Lord, so we did believe; Ya Allah ! forgive us therefore our faults, and cover our evil deeds and make us die with the righteous.
Ya Allah ! grant us good in this world and good in the hereafter, and save us from the chastisement of the fire.
Ya Allah! Accept From Us ; Surely Thou Art The Hearing, The Knowing
