  1. Nice lecture on being good to one’s wife. Words of wisdom from Abu Khadeejah (hafidhahullah). The lecture also gives explanation to the hadith of “woman is created from rib”.

  2. Every woman on the planet, under the sun needs to listen to this lesson. It is extremely beneficial and spirit-lifting; highlighting the true status, importance and value of women according to the Qur’aan and Sunnah.
    Too many people, even those who strive in the way of goodness, are ignorant and misinterpret the Hadeeth regarding women and their rights, and it leads to a lot of fitnah.

    I feel very strongly about this subject, because the misrepresentation of women in Islam once lead me to feeling inferior and loathe being a woman – to the point of thinking there’s no point in women even existing.

    But after listening to lessons like this, everything became clear and I felt immensely relieved and happy.

    Sometimes, even the well-meaning brothers can get on their high-horse and start thinking they’re a little too fantastic – ending up in making women out to be something low and unworthy of good treatment.

    So I would advise men to also lend an ear to these lectures and pay great attention to them, Insha’Allah.

    • Wow, Ukhti, I totally agree!

      If only more men actually realised that women being created from the crooked rib does not mean that they are some evil specimen.

      This lecture should indeed be listened to by women and all discombobulated men, alike. Tremendously beneficial, Alhamdulillaah.

  3. This was a great lecture and I am glad it included other benefits such as the treatment of the neighbor. A great reminder indeed.

  4. A brief but honest discussion of the ahadeeth of the bent rib. Women should be taught their religion in all its detail irrespective of whether it offends them or not.

  5. Jazakillaahukhairan,for this very beneficial information on both the hadith of the bent rib, and the neighbors’ rights.
