Luckily Allah has given us an ideal portrait in the Messenger of Allah (Peace be upon him) to help break this routine.
Here are five practical, yet powerful, lessons from the Messenger to help rekindle our relationships.
1. Smile Often
Prophet Mohammed (SAWS) used to smile at everyone. So much so that his companies would say They never watched anyone smile over him.
It's easy to overlook how powerful a simple smile can be.
Husband or Wife; we all have long and strenuous days. Rather than bombarding your spouse with complaints on first sight, then engage them with a smiling face.
The Prophet also told us that easy smile is an act of charity
2. Say Sweet things
Prophet Muhammad would say:
"Whoever believes in Allah and the Day of Judgment permit them Say good or keep silent."
It's very simple to nitpick at our spouses. We are about each Other the time.
Rather than searching out flaws, point outside qualities.
Try to make it a new daily habit of complimenting your spouse.
3. Don't Get Angry
When Ali married Fatimah, the Prophet (peace be upon him) Gave him amazing words of information.
Advice so significant that the Prophet repeated it three times:
"Don't get Angry".
He did not tell him restrain you anger, but rather do not become mad in the first location.
We get angry at our partners for the silliest things, from The way they squeeze the toothpaste bottle to how they wash the dishes.
Chill out. Instead, smile and say something sweet.
4. Go Out Together
The Prophet would spend quality time together with his spouse.
He did not live a separate life under the same roof.
He would go on walks with his wife, travel with his wife, And seek her advice. He would participate in stimulating conversation.
When was the last time you took spouse out for a nice dinner (not speaking about curry in a hurry) or went outside for a cup of coffee?
5. Say "I Love You"
The Messenger of Allah was not afraid to profess his love.
He'd frequently speak of the Fantastic affection he had for his wife Khadijah.
A Lot of Us are likely unable to remember the last time we Said it to our partner. That is not prophetic.
So there you have it:
Smile, Say Something Sweet, Don't Get Angry, Go Out and Say " I Love you" -- remember and practice.
