Protection and Preservation

a husband must protect and prevent his wife and children from any possible harm or immorality to the best of his abilities. allah, the exalted, says:
(o you who believe! save yourselves and your families from a fire whose fuel is men and stones, over which are (appointed) angels stern (and) severe, who disobey not the commands they receive from allah, and do what they are commanded.)

all that protects from unlawful and shameful deeds is commendable, but extremism is not. he (peace be upon him) also said:
“there is a kind of jealousy that allah loves and a kind which he hates: the kind that he loves is in the doubtful acts, and the kind he hates is in the acts without any doubt.”
[abu dawood #2659 & nasa`e #2558]
certain types of jealousy are acceptable and commendable, and others are not, as the prophet of allah (peace be upon him) explained above, and in a verified tradition he said:
“verily allah gets jealous and the believer gets jealous and the jealousy of allah is to see a believer doing unlawful acts.”
[bukhari #4925, & muslim #2761]
