Question : You mentioned the application of “temperance’ when dealing with people who may become very close and those who are disliked. In regards to the former would temperance be recommended in relationsips such husband and wife too?
Answer : The temperance that is necessary in all relationships is that one:
(1) Not get attached to them in a manner that causes one to do, seek, or approve of something disliked or prohibited by Allah Most High;
(2) Be able to deal with their loss or their turning away from one without falling into despair, depression, or loss of one’s spiritual, emotional, or life dignity.
And Allah alone gives success.
