A Fatwa is a principle or judgment to clarify how an Islamic should behave in certain situations. These laws are created regularly, such as Rushdie’s death sentence. Fatwas are created by a Mufti, someone who knows Islamic law.

- If the wife has a job and she receives a good salary, is it incumbent upon the husband to provide for her? And what will the situation be, if his income is little?
It is an obligation upon the husband to provide for his wife, even if she has a good salary, because his providing for her is in return for the pleasure which he gets from her – even though his income may be little, unless the woman is good-natured and is indulgent towards her husband regarding provision, then the matter is up to her.
