Ticket No.16 – Obeying One’s Husband
The Messenger (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said, “If a woman observes her five daily prayers, fasts during the month of Ramadhan, guards her chastity and obeys her husband, she may enter Paradise through any of the gates she wishes.”
[Ibn Hibban ~ Hadith Sahih]
This hadith shows the bounty of Allah which He has bestowed upon the Muslimah (Muslim woman) whereby she is granted paradise and given the choice to enter through any gate she pleases if she is able to perform these certain acts.
These acts are:
- Constantly prays her five daily prayers.
- Fasts the month of Ramadhan.
- Guards her chastity from all types of adultery.
- Obeys her husband in everything other than disobedience to Allah.
On the day of judgment the people of paradise will enter paradise through the gates which they are deserving of, so the ones who fast would enter through the gate of fasting and the ones who died as martyrs would enter through the gate of martyrdom and the Muslimah who observes these actions is given the choice to enter through any gate which she pleases. This is the bounty of Allah which He gives to whomever He pleases.
And Allah Knows Best!
