Long time! I hope all is well with you bloggers and that you had a wonderful Friday. Below is my short article in Hayati Mag. Please read!
I recently wrote an article called, “Why Do We Forgive Our Spouses?” and I hope you get to read it in our next issue insha’Allah. The idea stemmed from my own life and daily struggle as a married individual. Don’t tell me your marriage is perfect. Wink!
Anyways, shortly after penning the reasons I thought we forgive our spouses, I read “Her Justice” by Author Nasheed Jaxson. While I read it, I realized that many issues I believed we forgive our spouses were hinted through the pages of his debut novel. And that made me secure about my piece because his novel was relatable; one gives advices to others while still facing challenging in one’s life. It’s a work of fiction but if you can’t identify with it, then it’s not relatable or it doesn’t ring true.
Jaxson’s debut novel is mainly written from a women’s perspective and to be honest, he nailed the job.
He nailed the job because you realize that it has always been in a woman’s nature to trick, seduce, to get to her desired end results. But with all that will power, things only happen by only the permission of Allah.
And talking of permission, it’s also in the nature of men to take. They take a new wife. They take your heart. They take your innocence. While many take what they think is ‘rightfully’ theirs, a good small minority ask for our permission.
May Allah make our spouses the good ones that ask for our permission before anything, amiin. May Allah also make us good wives with less tricks up our sleeves, amiin.
