Hadith for Thought

Treatment of Women in Islam

So treat women nicely." Volume 4, Book 55, Number 548. - Sahih Bukhari

Narrated Mu'awiyah al-Qushayri:
I went to the Apostle of Allah (pbuh) and asked him: "What do you say (command) about our wives?" He replied: "Give them food what you have for yourself, and clothe them by which you clothe yourself, and do not beat them, and do not revile them." Book 11, Number 2139 - Abu Dawud
