This book, Az-Zaujus Salih or The Pious Husband is in fulfillment of our promise made in the Introduction of our book, Al-Mar'atus Salihah or The Pious Woman. We express our gratitude to Allah Ta'ala Who alone has made possible the fulfillment of our promise so quickly just months after publication of Al-Mar’atus Salihah. All praises are due to Him.
Just as Al-mar'atus Salihah was prepared exclusively for the benefit and guidance of women, so too, is Az-Zaujus Salih written for the exclusive benefit of husbands in general and in particular for those husbands who believe that their superior rank is a licence for abusing wives.
The lasting success of a marriage - the Muslim marriage – is not confined to only the fulfillment of the minimum legal huqooq (rights and obligations). It requires much more. While both partners in the marriage have to make sacrifices, the major part of the responsibility of ensuring that the marriage remains an enduring episode of happiness and sueeess devolves on the husband whom Allah Azza Wa Jal has appointed the Qa-im/Hakim (Ruler) of the home. The success of the marriage cannot be achieved by the husband wielding only the coercive powers of his hukoomat (reign) over his wife. A happy married life relies heavily on the pure and true love which Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) has exhorted to develop.
This book teaches husbands the Sun rah attitudes which they have to ""adopt in their relationship with their wives. This is not a book in Fiqh and it does not discuss the legal rights of the husband. Rather, it is the prescription - the Islamic prescription – for a happy and successful marriage, the blessings and' rewards of which extend into even the Hereafter.
This book is not a licence for disobedient wives for achieving their desired goal of domination over their husbands. While husbands should study Az-Zaujus Salih (The Pious Husband), wives should do likewise with Al-Mar’atus Salihah (The Pious Woman). Both partners should implement their respective roles in praetieal life. These two treatises, viz Al-Markztus Siilihah and Az-Zaujus Sillih, constitute the alchemy of marital happiness and success. May Allah Azza Wa Jal accept our humble effort and may He grant readers taufeeq to act in accordance with the Islamic advices and admonitions contained herein.
