Fulfilling the rights of the mother and the wife

Q: Who has more rights on a man, his wife or his mother?


A: A man has rights that he owes to both, his mother as well as his wife. Hence he should fulfil the rights of both and not deprive one on account of the other.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
