I have a question and that is:Are stepchildren obliged in Islam to obey their stepmother? What are the rights of a stepmother in Islam?
I need some reference on this and look forward to your opinion.
Thank you and Waslam.
assalam o alikum
stepmothers should be treated like your own mother aunts and relative, because it has been compulsory on everyone to respect each and every person, if she behave bad with you then it is duty to show some patience Allah love those who bear the tough time with patience. when you will not react on their bad attitude they will realize it very soon.
RIGHTS OF STEPMOTHER
Due to the fact that your stepmother is
married to and has a bond with your
father, and we have been commanded to
have good relations with our parent's
friends, therefore the stepmother also has
rights: These rights are those mentioned
(previously-Rights of a wet nurse)
[ Similarly is the case of a stepfather.]
It has been mentioned in the Hadith that
the big brother is similar to the father.
Thus, it therefore necessitates that the
younger brother is like your children in
respect of their rights over you.
Therefore, as regards your elder and
younger brothers, they have the same
rights as that of your parents and of your
children respectively. Regard the rights of
sisters upon the same principle.
RIGHTS OF ALLAH FIRST & FOREMOST
The first right upon a servant is that due
to Allah Ta'ala, Who has blessed us with
innumerable bounties and favours and
Who takes us out of misguidedness
towards Guidance and has promised us
enormous reward for our actions.
The rights of Allah Ta'ala, called
Our beliefs regarding the Being and
Qualifies of Allah Ta'ala should be in
accordance with the Qur'aan and Hadith.
That we should make our beliefs, actions,
business transactions, social life and
character in accordance to the Pleasure of
Allah Ta'ala, and abstain from all those
things which lead to His displeasure.
That you give preference to the Pleasure
and Love of Allah Ta'ala over all other
loves and pleasures of life.
Whatever you have, be it love or enmity
for anyone, having good relations or
breaking-off of ties, should only be for
the pleasure of Allah Ta'ala...
