    Maa’sha’Allah really enjoyable podcast, some excellent observations regarding marriage.

    Picking up on the point bro Habib made regarding kindness and empathy towards oneself and a spouse. I could list many, many qualities I love in my husband, but the one quality which makes my daily life so enjoyable is his undying support of all my endeavours, whether academically or just the small things everyday things. This is pure kindness that he shows me on a daily basis. In all our years of marriage he has never criticised me, or demanded I explain my actions, we all talk about good adab but how many of us actually live it?

    Anas ibn Malik reported: I served the Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, for ten years. By Allah, he never even said to me, “Uff!” He never said harshly for anything, “Why did you do that?” or, “Why did you not do that?

    We should never underestimate the importance of being kind and supportive of one another. We may forget words people say but we never how people made us feel.
