Faithfulness in Marriage

Bismillahir Rahmaanir Raheem

Once a group of Muslims were on their travels propagating Islam in Edinburgh. The Imam was leading the prayer [in a public place]. After completing it, he was met by a few girls. One of the girls asked, "Do you know English?"

The young man [who was leading the prayer] said, "I do."

She said, "What is this that you have done?"

The young man replied, "We have performed worship."

The girl said, "But today isn’t Sunday."

The young man said, "We do this five times a day."

The young lady expressed, "That’s a lot."

The young man explained that if the blessings of Allah Ta'ala are kept in view, this is very little. And this is that action which brings about the spring of tranquility. This isn’t hardship, this is felicity.

Then the girl extended her hand to bid farewell and the young man said, "Forgive me for my hand cannot touch you."

She asked: “Why?”

He said, "This is my wife’s trust".
The girl collapsed to the ground. With tears in her eyes, she said, "How blessed is that wife who has such a husband. O that the men in Europe would be like this!"
