5 tips to improve your communication with your spouse
Developing good communication between husband and wife
Many women complain about the lack of communication in their marriage. They have limited or zero communication with their spouse and feel isolated in their four walls.
Their husband’s inability to communicate could be a common feature in his family, which he has inherited from his parents. It is quite likely, the children of this couple will also inherit this pattern of behaviour.
Sadly having no communication in marriage is common problem. Your spouse is your partner and your support to Jannah, so you need to be able to communicate what troubles you, what pleases you, what you like and vice versa, so that you can understand each other and support each other.
1. Spend time engaging in conversation
The Prophet (peace be on him) and his wives would converse and tell each other stories, often at night after Isha, as is evidenced by the hadith of Umm Zar’, in which they entertain themselves with a story about a conversation between eleven women who are discussing their spouses. Spending time with one’s spouse in conversation is even rewarded.
Abu Hurairah (may Allah be pleased with him) reported that the Prophet (peace be on him) said:
It is also charity to utter a good word. (Bukhari and Muslim)
Who deserves good words more than our parents, spouses, children and family? Aisha (may Allah be pleased with her) narrated that the Prophet (peace be on him) said:
The best of you is the best to his wives, and I am the best of you to my wives. (Tirmidhi)

When a husband shares what happened in his day, it is important that his wife listens to him a hundred percent without interrupting. And likewise when she wants to share her day, then he should listen attentively as well.
