says (interpretation of the meaning):
who believe! Ward off yourselves and your families against a Fire (Hell)

Allaah, but do that which they are commanded”
Allaah has put the wife
and children under the care and protection of the husband, and he will be
asked about them on the Day of Resurrection. It was narrated from Ibn ‘Umar
that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said:
“Each of you is a shepherd and each of you is responsible for his flock. The
ruler is a shepherd and is responsible for his flock; the man is the
shepherd of his family members and is responsible for them; the woman is the
shepherd of her husband’s house and children and is responsible for them;
the slave is the shepherd of his master’s wealth and is responsible for it.
Each of you is a shepherd and each of you is responsible for his flock.”
al-Bukhaari, 853; Muslim, 1829.

husband’s threat of divorce does not count as a legitimate excuse for her,
and is not regarded as her being forced to do it. Rather she should advise
him in the way that is better. If he responds and gives up the evil that he
is doing, this is something good that he is doing for himself, and she will
be rewarded for that. If he refuses to respond to the command of Allaah to
lower the gaze and avoid looking at haraam things, then it is not
permissible for her to obey him in committing sin, and she should not trust
him with regard to herself or her children, and Allaah will compensate her
with someone better than him, in sha Allaah.
