About the Book

This book, truthfully, is an ideal gift to Muslim brides, as mainly deals with the concerned affairs of newly married life e.g., How to live amicably with in-laws avoiding all domestic disputes and how to harmonise with the Husband's sentiments and preferences, to capture his heart and inclusive attention. Etc. etc.

The book also contains stories of some exemplary women, Imam Al-Ghazzali's advises and other precious parting advices as a light of guidance. By practising them a home can become a garden of Jannah.

This book should be read in sequence cover to cover and pass the advices on to other Muslim sisters.

How to read this book

This book ideals with people's domestic life. Since one's domestic happiness has a direct bearing on one's happiness outside the home, we advise that the contents of this book should be read with great earnestness and that the failings cautioned against should be avoided. Although these failings may result from immaturity and inexperience, they are nevertheless extremely harmful. One should read this book with the intention of reforming oneself. One will be able to avoid these failings if one reads this book with the following advices in mind:

1. Before reading the book, make Du'a to Allah saying, "O Allah! Make this book a means for my guidance and make me the delight of my husband's eyes and make me his most valuable asset."

2. Set aside such time for reading this book, which is free from disturbances and worries, because a mind that is preoccupied with other concerns will soon become weary with the subject matter of any book.

3. An important advice is that this book should be read in sequence from cover to cover even though this may take months. In fact, one should never grow despondent even if it takes longer than a few months. An easy way to ensure that one completes the book is to calculate a specific number of pages that one will read daily, based on the total number of pages in the book. A book mark should always be used to mark the page where one stops.

4. Another extremely important advice is that one should keep a pencil handy to mark places that mention something especially pertinent to one. These parts should be read many times and Du'a should be made to Allah to grant one the ability to practice accordingly.

Another benefit of keeping a pencil handy is that when reading, it may occur to one that some subject matter which may satisfy the thirst of some Muslim sister has not been included in this book. It may be that this subject pertains to a woman's life as a Muslim woman or as a wife or as a mother, or it may even be something that could terminate disputes. Should such a though occur to one, one should make a note of it under the heading of "Clarification" and bring it to the attention of the publisher or the compiler, specifying the page number and line number where it is to be added.

While reading the book, one should make Du'a to Allah that He creates love and affection between all married Muslim couples and that He makes them all a means of rearing pious children. One should make Du'a daily that Allah keeps them all happy together with all those getting married. Together with reading this book and progressing spiritually and morally, one should also pass these advices on to other women.

The final request to the reader is to make Du'a for the compiler of this book, the people who authored the books from which information was taken and all those who assisted in this publication in any way. Of course, the person making the Du'a will never be deprived of the good of the Du'a May Allah reward you all tremendously.


This book cites the sterling examples of six women during the time of Rasulullah. The lessons that this book teaches include:

Obeying the husband
True love for the husband
Honouring and serving the husband
