It was narrated by Â’isha – may Allāh be pleased with her – that the The Prophet ﷺ said:
❝The most complete of the believers in Īmān, is the one with the best character among them. And the best of you are those who are best to your women.❞
[Jami’ at-Tirmidhī 1162 - Grade: Hasan]
Shaykh Ibn Uthaymīn – may Allāh have mercy on him – said:
❝Regarding the saying of the Prophet ﷺ said: ‘The best of you...’ This person is the best of the people, he is the best of them to his wife. So if you have any goodness, then make that goodness for the closest of the people to you, and make it so that your wife is the first to benefit from this good.
And this is the opposite of what some people do today, you find that he has bad manners with his wife, and has good behavior with other people, and this is a great mistake. Your wife has the most right to good behavior, and having the best manners to them, because she is the one who is with you day and night, openly and secretly.
If you are afflicted with something she is afflicted along with you, and if your happy, she is happy along with you, if your sad, she is sad along with you, therefore you should make your dealings with her better than your dealings with strangers, so the best of the people are those who are best of them to their wives.
I ask Allāh to complete my īmān and that of the Muslims, and that he makes us the best of the slaves of Allāh to our wives and upon those who have a right upon us.❞
