Does Your Wife Work?

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?

H : Take rest, because i’m tired due to all day works.

P : What does your wife do then?

H : She prepares meals, serving our kids, preparing meals for me and cleaning the dishes, cleaning the house then taking kids to bed.

From the story above, who do you think works more?

The daily routines of your wives commence from early morning to late at night. That is called ‘DOESN’T WORK’??!!

Yes, Being Housewives do not need Certificate of Study, even High Position, but their ROLE/PART is very important!

Appreciate your wives. Because their sacrifices are uncountable. This should be a reminder and reflection for all us to understand and appreciate each others roles.

Understanding and Appreciating each other will make each person feel Happy.

    True! Housewives really are the unsung heroes!

    However, nowadays girls cannot be credited. They don’t do housework and now do jobs while both the couple are out, they appoint the maid to take care of their children which is more or less insufficient.

    While agreed this is true, but the trend is loosing fast and soon, & even now there are lots of women who are not deserving of the credit now anymore!! 🙂

    We should respect the contribution of “House Wives”
    Brother Atef has already commented great words in this regard, I will add a few:
    The women are not our maids (As a typical husband mind think), we have their matrimonial rights only. The LORD of their life is ALLAH SUBHANA WA TAA`LA. Therefore we should be very careful in matters with them. In ISLAM, the Husband is responsible primarily for managing finances.

    Feeling that house work is the duty of wife alone is UN-CORRECT; instead of requesting her-making an order to her-is BAD; if any-time her cooked food found tasteless-or-less tasty- saying bad either to her or to her cooked food is WORST (Such acts are Warned in ISLAM); appreciating at her works is MUST (Ordered so in ISLAM); along with appreciation joining her in house works is GOOD (Recommended so in ISLAM); after all supports to her, smiling at her (at each other), taking good care of her (to each other, to kids, mutual parents, guests) and bringing frequent gifts for her is GREAT [The Most Influential and The Most Successful Person The Earth has Ever Witnessed i.e. Prophet Muhammed PBUH Who is The Final Prophet & Messenger of The One True God (ALLAAH, The Most Gracious, The Most Merciful) used to do so with his wives].

    My husband and I are University teachers and we do research too. We work very hard teaching, doing research project around the year and advising students’ project . However, when it comes to housework, eventhough my husband and I spent 8 years in the USA, I do all the work alone, teaching kids, cleaning the house, the garden, clothes, our cars, make repairs at home, cooking and serving him and our 4 children. He and the kids never think that it’s too much for me. I work outside our home twice a week and the maid takes over, but then again she is never as efficient as I am! Anyway, I am glad to be born a woman and I love my house and family.

    yes,we should weight women in gold.in islam the woman has avery promonant place.there is even a whole chapter in the holy quran speaking about women and their rights.and our great prophet(peace be upon him)tells us to respect woman in every aspect of life.so,what ever we do for our mothers,sisters.and wives,we will never ever compensate them.God bless them all.

    the guy in the story is married to the maid.

    So ‘Does n’t work’ turns to ‘Hard Working’…So what would be the situation of ladies who are working and at same time manging their home, I guess it’s really terrible!!

    A housewife manages a complete industry of home alongwith imparting training to kids and providing essence of the life “LOVE & HARMONY” to every member of the family.

    Yes, she is working in my home by way of looking after me and my daughters and also take care of everything for us…

    Real fact revealed. House wife means Doesn’t Work???????

    • Abdus Salam April 5, 2013 at 7:39 PM #

      This is the attitude of husbands of developing countries. Since the wife does not work in any organization, but her contribution in the house is more valuable than her husband which generally does not quantify by money. We need to change our attitude towards them.
