Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah

00:00:09--> 00:00:42

Assalamu alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh this historic applebee for marriage QA, and today inshallah Allah, we talk about conflict resolution in the month of Ramadan, the month of Ramadan, especially the first few days is the time where, you know, tempers will flare where people will lose, you know the data, they'll become angry, there'll be frustrated, you know, the first few days Mashallah people are finding it extremely difficult to fast. And it's important as a couple that you understand that this could happen, and that you have the tools and you have the methods and techniques at your disposal to make sure that, you know, just simple you know, emotional flare ups

00:00:42--> 00:01:17

do not become, you know, major conflicts in your marriage. And it's extremely important because they are going to be certain disagreements that are going to come up in the month of Ramadan, they could be simple or they could be more complex examples of this could be that you have been invited to a certain person's home, the wife wants to go and the husband does not. And so, an argument ensues, or it could be the opposite. Or in the month of Ramadan, you have a certain you know, list of goals and expectations but your spouse does not share them, you have a certain certain idea of of what you would like to do for a farm, you know, officer who and your spouse doesn't agree with you, or you

00:01:17--> 00:01:52

find that you know, your family members or your friends sort of impose on you in the month of Ramadan. And so that is a source of of tension and conflict. So, it is important inshallah huhtala whether we are in Ramadan or outside of Ramadan, but this is especially and specifically in the month of Ramadan, since it's a month of mercy, it's a month of coming, you know, closer to Allah subhana wa tada that you have this understanding of what the Sharia and what Islam teaches about conflict and how to resolve that. The first thing that we need to realize is that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was asked for advice, and he told them and lots of above, do not become

00:01:52--> 00:02:28

angry, that it is important that we're lucky we control our emotions, that you realize that you are becoming angry, and you actively and you proactively take steps to make sure that you listen that and that you call the middle way those who control the rage and the and the anger that is a quality of the belief is and you should realize that when you become angry, as soon as you realize it, you should start to control your anger and realize that it's going to lead to something that you are not going to that you are not going to be proud of later. If you understand all of those repercussions, then inshallah tada that makes it easy. The second thing is that when couples have any conflict or

00:02:28--> 00:03:04

any disagreement, they both have to feel a loss of a handle with either fear or a law. This is your spouse, this is a person you you have committed and you made an oath by Allah subhanho wa Taala you said cobuild to deca, ha ha I have accepted her in marriage. So as a husband, you have agreed to stay fulfilling certain rights and responsibilities that Allah subhana wa tada has given you, Sophia allottee, guarding her detail well. And as a woman, you have been commanded to teach your husband well to obey Him and to take care of him to take care of his household Sophia Allah subhanho wa Taala is that the second or the third matter that's important for us to realize when any conflict,

00:03:04--> 00:03:42

you know arises is that we have to be gentle. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said makanda riff COVID a lesson that whenever there is gentleness in a matter, it beautifies you know, you you realize that you are about to have an argument, you might be losing your temper that hamdulillah you know how to deal with it. So you've cooled down now, and you've you've controlled your anger. The next thing that you have to realize after fearing a loss of a hand over data, is that if you are gentle, you will bring about you will beautify that situation. You will bring calmness and tranquility to it. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would never become angry. Eventually

00:03:42--> 00:04:17

this would only become angry with the laws of Allah were being violated. That is when he would become angry, which means that when his wife was frustrating him when she did something that angered him the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam would not lose his temper, and start becoming vulgar. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam a person who was vulgar, nor would he ever speak in a vulgar way. And so this is also important, gentle this, if we can have this in our marriages, we will beautify our marriages, our spouses will appreciate it. You know, they will be surprised because everyone else that they know when they become angry, they become vulgar, and you know, they become a

00:04:17--> 00:04:56

nude and they use, you know, obscene language and they become, you know, people, you know, sometimes you don't even recognize them. And how many couples You know, I've told me that sometimes when my spouse becomes angry, I don't even know who they are. This is not Islam. This is not the Sunnah. And so to have this beautiful marriage, we need to be gentle woman, Lucy, I mean, Shane Illa Shana, and when it is taken away, it will spoil it and that spoils a marriage when couples become violent, aggressive, when they become you know, obscene in this speech, and then they spoil their marriages, they lose respect for one another, the resentment grows and that is that cannot none of those things

00:04:56--> 00:04:59

can be present in a marriage and we will we will call that marriage.

00:05:00--> 00:05:40

healthy and successful, this this is extremely important the month of Ramadan, you are controlling your your your innermost and most you know intimate desires by not eating and drinking and engaging in sexual intercourse during the day from fudger until until sunset. So if you can do that for the sake of Allah, then surely you can control your anger, you can control you know your, your your willingness or other your your desire to want to say something hurtful to your spouse, if you can stay away from food and drink that which you desire which you need for your survival, then surely, you can control every other you know, desire every other whispering of shaitaan you can you can

00:05:40--> 00:06:11

control that you can prevent that from becoming an issue in your marriage. am Allah subhanho wa Taala brought the success in sha Allah, Allah, may he guide us to Sudan all of our affairs, especially in our marriages, so that we can have these marriages that will become the foundations of living a successful life as a believer. We have this beautiful spouse that will encourage us and bring us closer to Allah greater success in this world and in the next May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant each and every one of us that barakallahu li cul de sac of Allahu halen whatsoever alikum warahmatu Allahi wa barakato
