Women and How They Must Be Treated
The Messenger of Allāh ﷺ said:
Make it a point to take this advice and be good to women, for indeed women were created from a bent rib bone, and indeed, the most bent part of the ribs is the most raised part, so make it a point to take this advice and be good to women.¹
Shaikh Ibn Bāz, may Allāh have mercy on him, said:
This is a command to husbands, fathers, brothers, and others that they make it a point to take this advice and treat women well, to be good and kind to them, to not wrong [or oppress] them, to give them their rights, and to direct them to all that’s good […]. And what’s required is that [nothing] of that [good treatment] be stopped [just because a woman] might on occasion be bad to her husband [or] relatives with her tongue or actions since they were created from a bent rib bone[.]
