Irritating spouse

An individual requested special prayers (dua) complaining that his wife was irritating him a lot.

Hakim al-Umma Hadhrat Mawlana Ashraf ‘Ali Thanawi (may Allah have mercy on him)  replied,

“Do not be distrubed by wife’s pestering. This is  also a spiritual struggle (mujahida). You will be rewarded for it*. Let her annoy you.”

Tarbiyet us Salik, volume 1, page 432

*(Especially, if you handle the situation correctly with the patience, wisdom and kind & caring attitude in return.)

    Assalam Allaikum,

    Jazak Allah for the advice. Personally, I feel lucky in that I don’t have to go through this type of mujahida at home. I heard Hadrat Hakeem Akhtar db relate a story about Hadrat Mirza Mazhar Jan-e-Janan ra, who had to endure this mujahida and who was told via an ilhaam from Allah that if he marries a certain woman in Delhi and bears the troubles patiently, his name will be made famous through the four corners of the world. May Allah give us taufeeq to carry out his orders with istiqamat. Ameen.
