The Status of Married Couples "The Nile River State ? Sudan"
Dr. Gobara Alimam Gobara Mustafa
Tracing Prophet Mohammed's (peace be upon him) treatment with his wives visa-vis would find it striking to our minds. If truly one is keen he would follow suit the master of creation. As our prophet Mohammed (peace be upon him) is a school where we can learn from him everything in all matters, in times of earnest, play, pleasure, anger, forbidden and travel among others. Tracing the long life of women in jahiliya (i.e. pre ?Islamic era) would find that women were unprivileged and not given due attention and care. They were degraded and disrespected. Community would consider women as sex objects. Man did not give them their own rights. Islam is a turning point to women where she was transferred from Jahiliya (pre-Islamic era) to the dawn of Islamic freedom. Women, in Jahiliya, would avoid mentioning the real name of a woman. Rather she was called "sheep" As Islam respected women and illuminated their path of life and transcended them from backwardness, one can notice that recently the former status of women shows up as it is evident in daily practices that men rarely go together with their wives. Neither men nor women mention the name of one another as this degrades their status in society. We can see that the Man, or the husband, would call or name his wife by the sons' names as saying "sons left?, ?sons" came. I went with the kids even though the wife has no sons. These are true instances of man's restraining his wife to fruitless customs and traditions. If one looks into the treatment of couples in our Islamic society would come up with inherited habits and customs far away from Islam. Marriage is a sacred bond if all values and the optimal treatment stem from the holy shrines. Marriage life would undoubtedly become boring which transfers joy and happiness to replace it with hardship and sadness which in turn would affect children's life. Thus, we would have lost the essence of marriage as it is intimate, merciful and secure as stated in the holy Koran " And among His Signs is this, that He created for you wives from among yourselves, that you may find repose in them, and He has put between you affection and mercy. Verily, in that are indeed signs for a people who reflect ". (1)
