"If we followed Islamic rules, Susan would be well cared for, respected, surrounded by the love and gentle help of her family and the laughter of her grandchildren." But you never know, even if she followed what you call "Islamic rules", anything could have happened which gets her still in exactly the same situation with no grandchildren. In Islam it is a women's right to be satisfied by her husband in bed. Islam stresses the importance of mutual sexual satisfaction between marriage partners in the following quranic verse: "It is lawful for you to go in unto your wives during the night preceding the (day's) fast: they are as a garment for you, and you are as a garment for. 2. Ask yourself: what am I looking for in a spouse. Abu Hurairah related that the Prophet said: "Men choose women for four reasons: for their money, for their rank, for their beauty and for their religion, but marry one who is religious and you will succeed" (Bukhari, Muslim). This of course, applies to women as well. The event can be a wedding, a party, a seminar, a conference, a corporate event etc. As long as you are holding the microphone on stage, you are the emcee. The role of an emcee is to warm up the crowd to prepare them for the program ahead. The emcee sets the tone. You are there to make the main stars of the show look good.
