Second aspect: Marital problems in the household of the Prophet of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, and how he dealt with them:
The Messenger of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, lived a blessedjoyful life with his wives, which was a practical implementation of the divine instruction mentioned in the verse (which means):
«And live withthem in kindness.»
However, no house is completely free from problems, even the blessed house of prophethood had occasional problems that arose. Since the Prophet of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, is our leading example, then problems had to happen in order for us to learn from him how to deal with marital problems and to react to them according to his guidance.
This is a very important issue for every husband, because the danger is not that problems take place since no house is free from having disputes, but the real danger is when wisdom is not applied when dealing with problems. This causes problems to magnify and couples desert each other and then divorce takes place.
