This is the third book in The Muslim Family Series. It presents the Islāmic view on the rights and obligations of the two spouses. It carefully and thoroughly conveys Islām’s holistic teachings, clearly distinguishing between past and modern culture and mindset influences on the marriage relationship and what is actually from Islām. It also dispels common misconceptions imposed on women regarding their obligations that have nothing to do with Islām.

This book presents many examples from the lives of the Prophet and his wives, thereby providing the reader with practical and realistic applications of the Islāmic rights and obligations of each spouse.
