Assalamu alaikum everyone! So I've been working and praying on increasing my faith and working towards better understanding everything, and I feel much better, alhamdulillah. But, I've been having a hard time understanding this concept of being a "slave" to God. My first reaction is one that seems a little arrogant, and my next is one of just not really understanding what this concept is. Also, while some of the sisters have explained to me the idea of obedience to one's husband, this one hits a bigger road block in my heart. Honestly, my belief is that in a marriage both husband and wife are equal, and both of their opinions and concerns should be taken with equal respect. My lack of knowledge makes it seem like it's putting women down, so that's why I'm looking to all of you for clarification. Thank you!
