Benefit: Deal with Your Wives as You Wish for Your Daughters to be Dealt With

In the Name of Allāh, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy

Know that you must honour your wife in your dealings with her as (you would expect from) the man married to your daughter. How would he deal with her? Would you be pleased that he deals with her in a harsh and cruel manner? The answer is No!

So do not feel content in dealing with the daughters of others in a manner that you would not be pleased for your daughter to be dealt with. Everyone should know this principle.
