This khutbah was given at the Huntsville Islamic Center.
In Surat Al-Mujadilah, explains Nouman Ali Khan, Allah warns husbands
against the seriousness of verbal and emotional abuse of their wives, to the
degree that He places a penalty of freeing a slave or fasting for 60 consecutive
days to go back on an unfair vow - a penalty reserved only for major sins. This
is testament to the fact that in its core, the purpose of Islam is to protect the
integrity of the individual and the family. This issue is so important that it takes
precedence over the hypocrites who were conspiring against Prophet
Muhammad, which is the subject of the rest of the chapter.
