    Aman told prophet mohammed (peace be on him) I? carried my mother induring all the ceremonies of Haj. Did ?I do good.? Prophet answered “All what you did doesn’t equal one of her labour during your birth.” This is the value of women,wives,sisters,or mothers.

    As the religion Islam gave full respect to women, we all muslim men should give respect to them and appreciate their work at homes. They discharge their duties in different forms as mother, wife and daughter. In a nuclear family, she is the only one to take care of children, husband and other related works from early morning till late night. We should appreciate the duties of women in different forms in our lives.

    Maa, Mom, Mother. The love starts and ends from MOTHER. The true story of our society.

    women are essential part of any society …..a woman’s field is her home,a secure home……the women who go to earn money their husbands consider right at their money but no husband help them at home task…….if they are having maid…..then to check to guide and to wait for the maid is a women resposibility
    and if maid becomes absent then she has to replace her duties…………as for as a husband is concern he remains calculating her assessts …….takes no contribution or interest in house hold activities

    This situation can not be thought of in a truly Muslim family. Because, paradise lies under the feet of the mother and a husband’s fate in the hereafter will depend in most part on the testimony of her husband and so on.

    So, beware!
    I thank Mr Wahab who commented that happiness in our worldly life depends on the love and care our mothers and wives give us.

    Dear All

    We respect our women and we give and have given the full authority of home to our women and they are happy. If we all give little attention then we won’t have the one sentence reply tothem that what do you do. If we give a full love to our wives then they will be much comfort with doing all 24hours work. Allah has given the most important authority that the Heaven is under the feet of mothers and all mothers should know about their value given by Islam.

    quite true

  8. abdulwahab April 14, 2013 at 9:19 PM #

    our life is more easier and comfortable because of our wives , and mothers . We should pay some attention, I think.

  9. Khalid April 14, 2013 at 8:38 PM #

    Yes, It is quite true.

    But, very few person realise this valuable contribution of a house-wife…May Allah have Mercy on them.

    A husband complains for feeling tired… tired and tired…. and wants his wife help him on earning money by also working, because so far he thinks that his wife is ‘not working’.

    Following are Question and Answer between The Husband (H) and The Psychologist (P):

    P : What do you for a living Mr. Sameer?

    H : I work as an Engineer.

    P : Your Wife ?

    H : She doesn’t work. She’s a Housewife only.

    P : Who makes breakfast for your family in the morning?

    H : My Wife, because she doesn’t work.

    P : At what time your wife wake up for making breakfast?

    H : She wakes up at around 6 am because she cleans the house first before making breakfast.

    P : How do your kids go to school?

    H : My wife take them to school, because she doesn’t work.

    P : After taking kids to school, what does she do?

    H : She goes to the market, then goes back home for cooking and cleaning clothes. You know, she doesn’t work.

    P : In the evening, after you go back home from office, what do you do?(…)

    Hi Sara, with my great respect to all ladies, the narrated subject could have been true sum 70-80 years ago in the europ but not any more, and I think the person who has written this subject is either joking or trying to down grad them. women’s are considered a part of our new civilized century & they shulder a great part of responsibilties in the society, there are executives, Ministers even prisidents engineers pilots Doctors Army officers solders name it.. and women this in Arab countrie particulary in Gulf, they works in Bank Ministeries run their own business etc and have at least two house maids in their houses to look after the house works.. so the above subject make no sense to me…

    yes indeed, all women in the world are abused by their husbands in a way or an other, whether verbally, psychologically or physically. I remember when I was a student at Boston University that an Algerian told me in front of his wife who was black and fat: she is a cow in Arabic. I felt very bad. How could he say such a thing on a human being and most importantly about his own wife. Men are weird some times!

  13. Mustafa Mehdar April 14, 2013 at 3:10 PM #

    All that were very true and much more. The only part that I do not agree with was the question ” What do you do the whole day?”. We do appreciate her work, and honor it with much more than words can say!

  14. Atiqul hoque April 14, 2013 at 3:04 PM #

    Great story yes ladies are hard workers at same time after all these if she can complete her five times prayers. In the Hadith it’s say and it’s only for ladies how full fill all here duties she can choose any gate of haven. Or normally if we are Lucy gate will your name and then you can enter. So my point is there is a reward for woman who work hard.

    This is a well known fact which every body can see at home

  16. Mohammd Mojahid Akhtar April 14, 2013 at 12:41 PM #

    This is 100% true . women is working very hard. One Example
    Wife & Husband watching TV .
    Wife Plan to sleep , she told Husband I am going to sleep, and then she started to arrange school dress for Kids , arranging/checking items for morning breakfast, checking Items in freezer , arranging bed , taking kids to bed so it takes nearly one Hours.
    Husband he wants to sleep just he switch off TV and then directly to bed . It takes only 5 minutes.
    This is the difference between man & women

    Absolute truth. I pity the women, who are housewives. We men have to be very much considerate on the role they are playing in our day to day life.

  18. Abdul Kareem April 14, 2013 at 12:28 PM #

    Absolutely true !

  19. Ali April 14, 2013 at 12:13 PM #

    Men work hard to provide for their family food, clothing and shelter but almost always fail to provide for their wives what they CRAVE for the MOST: APPRECIATION

    A very wise man was asked by his wife who was taking part in a group of self help for women to improve their marriages, about six things he would want her to improve in herself.

    Next day he sent her six roses with a note saying: “Darling I could not think of a single thing I would want to change in you. I love you just the way you are”. When he returned home from work she greeted him at the door as if he was gone for months.

    Appreciation is what moves hearts while criticism sucks the life out of them and gives nothing in return. So instead of letting off steam, hold your tongue and look for all the good points in the person and they mean to you as you are likely to destroy them with a few harsh words.

    YES !
    I have noticed the same in the middle east !
    No body – except few – does value the wife role !
    We have to learn from Islam religion what the Mother deserves.
