Shaykh calls woman ‘nothing’ in front of her husband


Assalam u Alaikum,

I heard on [one shaykh’s] channel that a woman is not allowed to refer to her husband as partner because she is nothing in front of him. She is just a rib. Is it not allowed to call spouse partner?


Waalaykumussalam warahmatullah.
“The best of you are the best-mannered towards their spouses” (Hadith). Of course she is her partner and vice versa, and much more than that. “What did you call her? Your sweetheart? She is a creator! Almost uncreated!” (Rumi, Mathnavi).
Hajj Gibril Haddad
