Husband and wife have certain rights and duties in married life. Husband and wife are helpful and complementary to each other. So both of them have special responsibility and duty to both. Allah said in the Quran,

Husband’s duty:

Allah said, “Men are responsible for women because Allah has preferred others to one another and they also spend their property.” (Sura 4: Nisa, verse 34).

The husband’s first duty or duties to his wife is to repay the money. It must be repaid in the balance even though. Payment can also be paid. If you die without paying a mortgage, you will have to pay it as a loan.

After marriage, the responsibility of the husband is to give her the shelter and lodging. The first of these three basic needs is food. According to the capability of the husband, the wife should be given regular or regular arrangements for the wife at the appropriate time. Note that food is an instant food item or prepared food. That is to provide food as the husband is in charge; Therefore, it is not the wife’s duty to prepare food. The second of the basic needs is the costume. The wife should give her a suitable dress according to her ability according to her ability. Providing necessary clothing as the husband’s responsibility; So she will spend the cost of dressing on her husband.

The third of the fundamental rights of the wife is safe accommodation or safe housing. In other words, the husband will give a room or room to stay with the wife, without the permission of the woman in the house or the room (no one except husband) cannot enter. Even the husband’s parents or siblings, too. In the interest of protecting his wife’s personal safety and confidentiality, she can use Talwbi in this room or room. No one can swallow his wife’s private or confidential information. No one can be searched without wife’s wife, wife, wife, husband, and wife. If a wife does not like her husband or wife, she should be given a separate house or house. The husbands should be allowed to wash the clothes used by their wives and husband will also be employed to get his wife to order a fire. (Sharah Belaya, Kitabun Nikah).

If the wife works in her husband’s life, then you will get the reward of Nafl Ibadat. Helping the husband’s income, and helping the children, if the wife works in the affairs of the poor and in-poor husband. Husbands and wives should cooperate with each other for improvement in the world.

Wife’s duty:
The wife also has some duties on her husband’s shoulder after marriage. In the Hadith, Rasulullah (Sa) said, ‘When a woman performs five times a day, fasting in Ramadan, maintains her chastity and honor, maintains her modesty and reveals her husband’s loyalty; Then he will enter the will through the door of Paradise. “(Abu Da’ud Sharif). The wife’s care for the wife as a wife is the responsibility of the wife. Caring for her husband’s family and saving her husband is also one of the responsibilities of the wife.

Allaah says, ‘But those women who are good women, women, women, women, women, women, and women, and those who follow them, they keep it safe.’

Allaah says, ‘And of His signs is that He created for you from yourselves mates that you may find tranquillity in them, and He placed between you affection and mercy. Indeed in that are signs for a people who give thought.”(Sura: 30 room, verse 21).

Child Rearing
Child’s responsibility Father She will carry babies for her maintenance and treatment and education. Mother will milk him Carefully cherish them. It has been stated in the Quran that,

‘If mothers want to feed their children to milk, they will drink milk for two full years.’ And the responsibility of the father of the child is their food and clothing. No person is given the past assignment of his capacity. The loss of the mother by the child is not lawful; It is not lawful for children to harm his father. And also on the successors of the heirs. “(Surah: 2, Baqarah, verse: 233).

The wife is the wife, the half-sister, the mother of the child; So the wife of your wife respect. The wife has multiple rights; Immediately there are some responsibilities and duties. Both husband and wife, and the family of both practice it after knowing the boundaries and duties of their rights, it would be good for the family.
