In Islam, Husbands Are Leaders. Wives Must Follow

If you asked me WHY a company is failing and I told you it is because there is no clearly defined leader, you would say:

Well, of course it will fail.

If you asked me WHY a school is failing and I told you it is because none of the administrators and teachers obey the headmaster of the school, you would say:

Well, of course it will fail.

If you asked me WHY a country is failing and I told you it is because the country’s ministers think they are equal partners with the president and are constantly struggling for control with him, you would say:

Well, of course it will fail.

But what if you asked me WHY do marriages fail and I told you these same things, will you also say: Of course!

Or will you call me a misogynist?

But What About Gender?

Someone might respond to the above by saying the analogy doesn’t work because gender is not an important component of businesses, schools, or countries, but it is presumably an important part of who is the leader in a marriage. Obviously, in Islam, the husband should be the leader, as Allah describes in the Quran 4:34.

How can this be justified?

We can simply ask women themselves what they prefer.

When they ask women what type of men they prefer to marry or have long-term relationships with, they overwhelmingly say they prefer macho men who fit the profile of “benevolent sexists” who exude “toxic masculinity.” See this article and the citations:

The Research Is In: Women Prefer Patriarchy

Even the self-labelled feminists have this preference for sexist men. Think about it. Given the option, no woman prefers to marry a weak man who is a pushover, who actively avoids leadership, who wants to be a meek, quiet follower of women, who shies away from “stepping up.” This type of man is literally disgusting to women, and given the choice, they wouldn’t marry such men. Women want to marry leaders. That’s their nature, even if they won’t admit it.

And those marriages where women do marry men who are lower than them in terms of power, social status, etc., are far more likely to end in divorce. It’s not hard to understand why. There is no fighting against human nature, i.e., how Allah has created us.

  1. Great analogy and excellent arguments.
    Especially closing the case by: “Women want to marry leaders. That’s their nature, even if they won’t admit it”.
    Haters gonna burn.

  2. If seen with some of my friends/college-mates
    Being a mommy’s boy, even after marriage. And some becoming their wife’s boy-toy. Disgusting.
    And they name it love or being cute. YUCK.
    They are so brainwashed, that the pure idea of a husband leading and wife following is a shock to them.
