Price of Leadership

A’isha (radhiallahu anha) said a man does not become the head of the household until he gives up the concern about what he wore and what food he ate to satisfy his hunger (out of consideration for the other members of his family). (Kanz)
The Prophet (sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) said in the farewell sermon: ‘Fear Allah regarding women; for you have taken them (in marriage) with the trust of Allah.’ (Mishkat)
The Prophet (sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) was asked about the obligations of husbands in relation to their wives, and he said, ‘You should feed her when you eat; clothe her (in a fitting manner) when you clothe yourself; neither strike her on the face, nor use impolite language (when addressing her), nor separate from her except in the house (should it become necessary).’ (Mishtat)
