Rasulullah sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam said: “The woman who passes away in such a state where her husband is pleased with her will enter jannah.”
Rasulullah sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam said: “The person who has been blessed with four things has in fact been blessed with the treasures of this world and the hereafter. They are: a grateful heart, a tongue that remembers Allah, a body that exercises patience at the time of calamities and difficulties, a woman who does not cause any taint or blemish with regard to her honour and her husband’s wealth.”
Lesson: In other words, she should not lose her honour nor should she spend her husband’s wealth without obtaining his pleasure. Rasulullah sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam said: “A noble and rich woman who is widowed and yet becomes dirty on account of serving and rearing her children to such an extent that they mature and live on their own or pass away, shall be close to me in jannah just as the index finger and middle finger are close to each other.”
Lesson: This does not mean that there is more reward for a woman to abstain from remarrying. What this means is that if a woman feels that by her remarrying, her children will go astray and she has no inclination towards beautifying herself and no desires, then this will be her status.
