The Ideal Muslimah : Leading their Men to Piety

One of the Deeni deficiencies found amongst some women is that they are not very particular about steering men away from the fire of hell.

In other words, they couldn't be concerned in the least bit whether the husbands provide Halaal or Haraam for them.  His source of earnings, be it in the form of bribery or any other Haraam avenue is of no concern to them. Explain to your husbands that they should not pursue Haraam sources and you would suffice with the little Halaal that they provide.

Similarly, if the husband discards his Salaah, she won't advise him in the least bit whereas if her own interests are at hand she will leave no stone unturned in achieving her ends. If a woman wishes to make her husband religious-conscious, it is not a very difficult task. However, to achieve this you should endevour to become religious-conscious yourself. Be regular and particular about your salah, saum, etc. Thereafter, advise your husband as well. Insha'Allah, your advice will then be very impressive.

If the women muster the courage and strength, the men will have no option but to become Allah-conscious. There are many instances whereby the women pressurized the men into giving up their evil practices. For example, some told them that if you don't abstain from accepting bribery, we will not eat your income. Their relationship of love compounded with her sincerety had such an effect that they relinquished their evil habit of accepting bribes. (Islaahe-Ingilaab page 184)
