1. TREAT THE WIFE IN A KIND AND GOOD MANNER
Make the words you say to them good, make your deedsand behaviour toward them good, the same that you would from them.
Prophet Muhamad SAW said "The best of you is the best to his family and I am the best to my family" and "A believing man should not should not have believing woman since if he dislikes her characters, he is pleased with another"
The man should not hurt his wife with either his actions or his speech.
Prophet Muhamad SAW was asked by one of his companions "What is the rights of our wives upon us?" He replied "It is that when you eat, you feed her; when you get clothing for yourself, you get clothing for her; do not strike her face, do not swear at her and do not boycott her except in the house"
2. TEACH HER THE MATTERS OF THE RELIGION
He teaches her if she ignorant and he reminds her if she forgets.
Prophet Muhamad SAW said "Man is responsible for his family and he will be asked for his responsibility"
3. FINANCIALLY MAINTAIN THE WIFE
ALLAH said "The father of the child shall bear the cost of the mother's food and clothing on a reasonable basis. No person shall have a burden laid on him greater than he can bear"
However the wife must not overburden her husband. She shoudl satisfied and happy with little.
Prophet Muhamad SAW said "Look to one who has less than you and do not look at the one who has more than you as this is more likely keep you from finding faults from the blessings of ALLAH upon you"
And ALLAH said "They (your wives) are our garment, and you are a garment for them"
