Are You Your Husband's Biggest Cheerleader?

You must be aware of the Winter Olympics that started over the weekend. I saw a few clippings of the inauguration ceremony, and something about the way the Canadian crowd cheered on their team made me draw parallels to a healthy marriage.

Canada has not won any medals in the Winter Olympics for the past two years and their chances of winning this year is heightened by their home advantage, since they are on familiar soil and receiving the greatest amount of cheering and support from their fans.

Are you your husband's biggest cheerleader? Can he count on you to be his first and most enthusiastic fan, the one who will support him when the odds of social acceptance are against him?

Our Prophet sal Allahu 'alayhi wa sallam fondly remembered Khadija radhi Allahu anha as the one who believed in him when no one else did, she accepted Islam when people rejected him (sal Allahu 'alayhi wa sallam), and she helped and comforted him when there was no one else to lend him a helping hand.

Here's something for you to start right now: give your husband the home advantage and watch your marriage bloom in your companionship. You are the constant cheerleader, cheering him on towards his purpose. Whenever he feels weighed down by his environment, you are the one he can count on to talk him out of the doldrums.

Be constant in seeking the help of Allah azza wajjal to remain true to your emaan and support your husband by being his biggest cheerleader. This is what it takes to be raised amongst the ranks of Khadija radhi Allahu anha, inshaAllah and it all begins with one step.
