Pearl of Wisdom

when asked about the character of the Prophet (SAWA) in his house, said, 'He was the best of people in character; he neither swore nor was obscene; he did not make a clamour in the markets, and did not return bad with its like, but he would pardon and forgive.'

Subject: husband's obligations of the wife
Question: I would like to have more information regarding the depth and extent of a husband's obligations for maintenance and expenses of the wife.

Is it true that the husband should provide the same level of life (luxuries, maids, education) as the wife had before marriage? Does the answer differ from one scholar to another? Are there any hadith and/or rulings in this regard?
Answer: The husband is obliged to provide his wife with food, clothing and housing in conformity with her social status and dignity; dignity meaning the same level of life that she had before marriage.

In this regard, the scholars share the same view.
