You Are Responsible For Your Family

responsible to family

Each of us is responsible for all our duty. Also, the husband is leader in family and responsible for his family.

A hadith from Abdullah bin Umar (may Allah blesses him), that the Prophet ﷺ said:

كُلُّكُمْ رَاعٍ، وَكُلُّكُمْ مَسْئُولٌ عَنْ رَعِيَّتِهِ، الإِمَامُ رَاعٍ وَمَسْئُولٌ عَنْ رَعِيَّتِهِ، وَالرَّجُلُ رَاعٍ فِي أَهْلِهِ وَهُوَ مَسْئُولٌ عَنْ رَعِيَّتِهِ

“All of you are shepherds and each of you is responsible for his flock. A husband is the shepherd of the family in his house and he is responsible. A woman is the shepherd of the house of her husband and she is responsible. Each of you is a shepherd and each is responsible for his flock” [Sahih. Al-Adab al-Mufrad, 212].

Means, the husband will be asked about his family? Did he teach his family well? Guided his family to rightness? Forbid his family from doing badness? And so on.
