Benefits of the narration:
• An individual should have patience with his wives, disregard the harshness of their speech, and should pardon their mistakes when it comes to their dealings with his rights, but not pardon them if the matter is related to the rights of Allah
• Putting too much pressure on women is something that is censured, because the Prophet of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, took the conduct of the Ansaar towards their wives (i.e. being tolerant), and abandoned the conduct of his people.
If an individual finds his friend in a troubled state, it is recommended to talk to him about something that will make his worries go away and to humor him, due to the statement of ‘Umar (in one of the narrations), “I will say something that will make the Prophet laugh.
The Prophet of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam and his wives maintained a high standard of behavior in the Prophet’s household. The etiquettes of good behavior and sound moral conduct were central to the lives of the Prophet of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, his wives, Companions and the entire Muslim community. The Prophet of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, strove hard always to do justice to all the roles he held.
Even when complications or tensions arose during the course of married life, the Prophet of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, managed successfully to be an exemplary husband. This is seen in the wisdom with which he dealt with situations of marital strife. Muslims are required to adopt the Prophet of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, as their role-model, as the manner in which they conduct themselves in their homes, in the patience, respect, love and tolerance they show their wives, defines their character and speaks volumes about their standard of faith.
