In The Dark Of Night - Islamic Story

Updated on September 23, 2017

Just a few words...

Assalammu Alaykum, Wr. Wb.

Many had misunderstood about wife's role inside her husband' life in Islam, including Muslim. Here in this Hub, I try to show readers a glance inside Muslim husband and wife's relationship, while fixing everyday differences.

Not like many had in mind about Muslim woman's life, Muslim woman has a voice and have the ability to speak their mind, also allowed to do that. But we had been taught to do that in the best manner to respect our Husband, the Captain of the family.

In return, many husbands understand how to love his wife and respect her voice. Many Muslim houses are free from kicks and punches, despite what the world wants to believe.

We are also human being, just like the rest of the world, no matter how weird our outfit and our thought sound to you. Didn't you know? ^_^

Have a nice day there.




A man sat in front of Computer after dinner to check on his account on HubPages. He has published several articles there and really enjoying his time being around HubPages Community which holds so many great writers; both pro and amateur.

After answered several nice comments his fellow Hubbers had left inside his Hubs, then read and also write comments for them inside theirs, in return (which he really love to do because it gives him the food for thought, he said once, when his wife asked why he really like being a Hubber), his eyes caught this one thread in the Religion and Philosophy Forum which saying bad thing about Islam. Without much thought, he clicked the reply button and starting to type his reply.

His face was red from anger, his eyes glared the screen and his body became tense. Noticed a sudden change in his body language; his wife peeked from behind his back to read the angry reply her husband has writing.

"As to those who reject Faith, it is the same to them whether thou warn them or do not warn them; they will not believe."

Al Qur'an 2:6


"Stop it, my Husband! It is not worthy." She said firmly. Her husband stops typing and turned to look at her, felt disbelieve.

"But someone has to step in front of them and teach them a lesson." He said. His wife winced her eyes a little bit before she said,

"What is it you want to teach to the ignorant?"

"The real deal about our religion, our faith, and our heart."

"Didn't you already do that before today?"


"Is it work?"

"Er... No."

"Exactly my point."

"But we have to try!"

The wife crooked her head as she looks at her husband's passionate face.

"How many sunnah prayers you did today?"

"Er, one before Dzuhur and Azhar and one after Dzuhur."

" One before Dzuhur and Azhar and one after Dzuhur while the day consisted of 24 hours?"


"How many ayyah of Al Qur'an you had studying today?"

"I didn't have a chance to sit and read it."

"Yet, you have a chance to read that full of a hateful thread?"


"How much money you gave to the poor today?"

"I don't have enough money even for us, you know that, wife. And that’s why I keep trying to make money online!"

"Back then, Rasullulah gave his food to a beggar and held his own hunger by tied hot stones around his tummy."


“Did you visit your mother and kiss her hand to greeting her before going to work this morning?”

“She was busy in the kitchen all day. I didn’t want to smell like kitchen while I have to work and meet many people, so I didn’t go there.”

“She brought you inside her tummy for 9 months, even when she had to climb the hills while very tired after doing house chores all day long.”

“That’s not my fault! I never asked for being conceived and born.”

“Yet, you had; conceived and born. Now became an adult who thinks win your argumentation with a nonbeliever is better than give your time to make your mother happy. Isn’t it right?


"..... They are (wife) your (husband) garments and ye are their garments."

Al Qur'an 2:187


“Don’t be cruel! I'm still your husband!”

The wife took her husband hands and put it on her hips while she came inside his embrace. She cupped her husband face in her palm and for the first time since the argument started, smiled sweetly.

“Yes, you are, my one, and that’s why I care whether you do the right thing or not. Allah said not to argue with nonbeliever for the need to depending His dignity, mostly over stupid garbage they write to mocked Him, because He never needs it from you. Allah, SWT is great and powerful and He is more than capable to do His own judgment. Never argue with those who make a fool of Religion, dear. It is not necessary.”

“I only want to make a change. Those people need to understand we are not like what they said we are.”

“So write an article in the best manner. Introduce the world with the content inside your heart. Or answer it with a peaceful way of talk. But never put the poison as your ink nor put your desire before your duty.”

Knowing she was right, her husband suddenly felt shame.

“I know. I’m sorry.”

“No sorry needed, love.” She said. “I am your wife, therefore, I will be the voice to guide you when you lost like you become Polaris for me everytime I lost in the dark of the night.”

“Like husband and wife supposed to be.” Her husband murmured.

“Like husband and wife supposed to be.” His wife agrees.

    Always Exploring: Yes, religion and philosophy forum often turned into boxing ring, where bad words flying around the page. Sometimes I felt the need to read, visit and answer the question, and it was painful experience. But I am wiser today about this matter. Trying at my best to involved with polite manner. For those with hot temper, better never click on any threat. Thank you, Ruby.

    Freya, if you really want me to help I will be glad to do so. While I can write English pretty well, my typing is terrible, so things take me a while. We all have some kind of problem I suppose. You are a very good writer.

    xstatic: Thank you. I believe good reading have to have a message to make it useful. I hope this Hub meet the goal.

    Since my editor move to the place where internet connection is limited to work, I don't have help I need to check on grammatical error since I can't do it by myself. Heeeeelp! Hehehe. Thank you for reading this.

    KrisL, 2 years in HubPages and I still that awful. Hhhh... It is disappointed. Thank you. I'll try to find someone to show me where is the problem because I can't found it by myself.

    Xstatic is very right . . . good advice to all who discuss religion or politics anywhere on the Web & on HubPages in particular. We and our readers will both be better if we express ourselves with reason and politeness and not assume people who disagree with us are either stupid or bad.

    Freya, I certainly enjoyed your hub/story. There are some who like to argue religion, I stay far away from them. We are all one in God's love..Thank you for sharing..Peace My Friend

    Hello Freya, This is a beautiful Hub about tolerance and full of good advice to those who discuss religion/politics on HP. I suppose the previous commenter has a point about some editing, but your point is very clear to me. Up, interestign and awesome.

    This is lovely, a good portrait of an ideal traditional Muslim family . . . but I think you need to go back and edit it so the English is completely correct.

    That way it will make the best impression possible.

    Don't feel you need to approve this comment; I just wanted to let you know my opinion so you can improve the hub.
