Husband & Wife Story – Sad Yet So True !!!

ripThere was a man who loved his wife very much. The couple had 4 children. He could give her everything he could but the woman never appreciated. Though the man was not rich, he would share all that he had with her. He could buy for her clothes and the only thing his wife could say was that the husband was fulfilling his duty as a Husband.

The man would buy a dress but in reply, the woman would mock at him, because the dress was of low quality. The man would smile at his wife and tell her “one day, I will become rich and I will buy for you all the expensive things you need”. The woman could never make any phone call unless she was requesting anything from her husband and once her request was not granted, all she could do was to quarrel for days, sometimes fight.

One evening, the man was coming from work, he bought 1Kg of meat, happily the poor man expecting to surprise his wife, he reached home found the wife and showed her the package. Then she shouted: “eh! And you call yourself a man? Which husband, apart from you, do you think comes home with just one kilogram, no cooking oil, and no other ingredients? You better leave it, you’re a good-for-nothing husband.” Then she threw the meat in the bush and went back home. The Husband felt low but he never let down his love for her.

One day, the husband felt pain in his left foot…..then a Tumor appeared on the foot, it then emerged growing big and more painful. He went to the hospital after several months of pain and was found with cancer, he was poor to have a better medical care.

Though he was sick he tried much as he could to provide for his family. Two years later the condition worsened and he was put in the special care unit, he was operated and the foot was removed,

but unfortunately it was too late, the Virus had affected more parts of the body and at last he called his wife and told him, “Take good care of my children, I feel I can’t live any longer even though I always wanted to be with you, may God help you”. He then breathed his last and died.

The woman, and four children cried, mourned his death and then buried him.

Two months later, the wife was crying by her husbands grave as she said these words:

“My love, you did all the best to me, you treated me well and gave me all you could, but all I could pay you, was endless quarrels and fights. I never realized your importance and your love until when you were gone, and when I’m the one to provide food, clothing, education and many others. I remember when I threw your one Kilogram of meat to the bush, but now i have nowhere to get even a Half a Kilo. They say ‘The Good Die Young’ that’s why you died when you were still young. A husband whom I could mock at but you only smiled at me. The husband who could care and had unending love.

I know you are no more in this world but still I ask you to forgive me for not appreciating all you did to me, when you were alive.

We are all missing your presence and your youngest daughter is always crying asking when you’ll be back. But you will never leave our hearts until we Join you.”


* Always appreciate what you are given, whether small or big.

* Love is not all about how much we have, but its all about how we share the little we have.

    Lesson we learn is respect what we get from GOD.He decides our fate.No point in crying for loss not possible to recover

    This story reflects one of the behaviors of humans that we do not care for the things/people when they are with us. But when we lose that thing/person, only then we come to know about the importance of that thing/person.
    Touching story!

    A very important lesson was brought out in this reality story, it was pretty obvious the lady was defiant up till when the husband breathed his last. But, she was lucky to realise her mistakes after the husnand’s death is alive to ask for forgive. She may be forgiven by Allaah and she may not. Some people will end there lives after inflicting so much pain on their spouse and never get the opportunity to beg for forgiveness before they die. A lesson for those who have the patience to see, hear, feel, smell, think and understand.

    Equally important is that there are men who do not appreciate their wives even in the least appropriate manner believing their wives are nothing slaves unto them. They run therisk of incurring the anger of Allaah. So heed while you have the powers and initialive.

    The woman did not understand this formula … love is scrifice … he scrificed all that he have even his life for the love he had for the wife and children… It is true that he could not give much but the true that he give everthing… We human need to relise this to enjoy the gift of life…. so sad but it is true

    Great lesson for those who always ask for more without trying to repay a very little bit

    There is a hadees which tell us that more women will be in hell because of their unappreciative and ungrateful behaviour towards their husbands. Contentment must be taught at the young age to both boys and girls.
