1. In which matter mother is given priority to father?

When serving or giving something, the mother should be given priority over father, for example, one has 100 rupees and if there is no hurdle in giving priority to the mother, he should give 25 rupees to his father and 75 rupees to his mother. If both mother and father ask for water at the same time, one should give water first to mother and then father. If both mother and father have returned from travel, one should knead the legs of his mother first and then father’s. (Fatawa Razawiyyah, vol. 24, pp. 389)

2. Wrong way of distributing Langer [the food served]

People throw Rotis down from their roofs; out of which, some are caught by the people and some of them fall to the ground and some are trampled underfoot, this is forbidden because it is a disrespect of the Divine sustenance. (Fatawa Razawiyyah, vol. 24, pp. 521)

3. Husband is a ruler

Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ has appointed the husband as an authority, it is unlawful for the wife to make him subservient. (Fatawa Razawiyyah, vol. 24, pp. 196)
