A seeker wrote,
Please, pray for my wife. She gives me to much trouble.
Hakim al Umma Maulana Ashraf Ali Thanvi ( Allah have mercy on him) replied,
‘Do not be distressed by the troubles from your wife. This is also a (form of) spiritual struggle. You receive reward on it (from Allah if you are patient, neither display anger nor act inappropriately). Let her annoy you more.’
