Promised Messiah (PBUH)

Sayings of the Promised Messiah (peace be upon him)

"Thus, as a wife has been designated as tilth, one of the purposes of marriage is that righteous servants of god may be born who may remember Him. The second purpose is that husband and wife may safeguard themselves through each other against improper looks and misconduct. The third purpose is that mutual love develops between them safeguarding them against the distress of loneliness. All this is set out the Holy Qur'an."

(Chashma-i-Marifat, Ruhani Khazain, Vol.23, pp. 292-293)

"Thus one can claim a higher status than the wives of the Holy Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him), yet they performed all domestic chores and swept their chambers. With all that, they were diligent in worship. One of them had suspended a rope from the ceiling to hold on to stay awake during Prayer. Part of the worship for a woman is discharge her duty to her husband and part of it is to express her gratitude to God."

(Mulfuzat, Vol. VI, p.53)

"The husband is the guardian and benefactor of the wife and is responsible for her comfort. He is her master and benefactor. He has been bestowed a stronger faculty than wife. Since the beginning of the world, man has ruled over woman, and the standard of faculties granted to woman is not as a high as that granted to men. The Holy Qur'an prescribes that if a husband, out of his beneficence, bestows upon wife a mountain of gold, he cannot take it back from her in case of divorce. This shows how much a woman is honoured in Islam."

(Chashma-i-Ma'rifat, Ruhani Khaza'in, Vol.23, pp. 276-291)

"If a man's relationship with his wife is not good, it is not possible that he should be at peace with God."

(Mulfuzat, Volume IV)

"There is hardly a prayer when I do not pray for my wife and children!"

"Everyone who looks down upon his brother because he considers himself to be more learned, wise, or more accomplished is arrogant."

(Nazul-ul-Masih, Ruhani Khaza'in, Vol. 18, pp. 402-403)

"The relationship between husband and wife should be as between two true and sincere friends."

(Mulfuzat, Volume IV)

"The dealings of a husband with his wife should be akin to the relationship between two true and sincere friends."
