To Make My Wife Happy, I’m Willing to be a Househusband, Is It Normal?

04 February, 2023
Q 1. I am a man who wants to be a househusband. Is it normal and acceptable for a man to want this. 2. I want to please and make my wife happy. Can you please suggest to me any ideas that would make a woman happy.


In Islam, men have the responsibility to provide financially for the family. 

If you want to take care of the household, make sure that you are aware of this priority and try to fulfill it. 

Kindness, respect, mercy, and forgiveness—these are some basic tenants of treating your spouse according to Islam. Besides, each woman has her own preferences and likes. 

Get to know your wife and what makes her happy. 

Learn more about the Seerah and about how our beloved Prophet treated her wives.
