A Root Cause of Problems

The shaikh, Dr. Muḥammad ibn Ghālib Al-ʿUmarī, may Allāh protect him, said:

A lot of marital disagreements, or the bulk of disagreements among families and within societies, have their root cause in the failure to make a distinction between rights and obligations.

One of us seeks his rights while neglecting the obligations upon him; a problem then arises because of that, [things becoming unclear], which will not be resolved except by understanding that [distinction].
