Benefit: Treat Your Wife How You Want Your Daughter to Be Treated
In the Name of Allāh, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy
"...Know that when you deal and interact with your wife then it is mandatory that you think of a [scenario] where a man is the husband of your daughter. How does he treat her? Would you be pleased for him to treat her with harshness and sternness? The answer is no. Therefore, do not be content with treating the daughter of another person in a fashion that you would not be pleased for your daughter to be treated. This principle should be known by all people."
