    more so your wife but keep an eye out for your unwed sisters. but saying that your sisters are your fathers responsibility. your parents probably mean generally just looking out for them.

      I would say your wife, because as a husband you have to feed and provide for her, and unwed sisters are the responsibility of their father until they have a husband, inshaAllah. Allah Alam, but that's what makes sense to me.

      You are not here just to fill space or to be a background character in someone else's movie. Consider this: nothing would be the same if you did not exist. Every place you have ever been and everyone you have ever spoken to would be different without you. We are all connected, and we are all affected by the decisions and even the existence of those around us.

        It is very easy to just say 'wife'. It's not as simple as that, the question is not a very wise.

        They are both your responsibility as you are their mahrams and guardian. Their should be no higher and lower in your mind, you should do your best to look after both the best you can, especially if your father is elderly/unwell. Having a list in your mind will not help you.

          Why should one's 'honour' be more important than the other's?? And in what situation would you even have to prioritise one over the other?

            what do you mean by 'honour'

            secondly, a wife has her own place with regards to you, and a sister has hers. why should they be weighed and compared.

              The relationships are way different.

              Is a brother wrong if he isn't protective about his sister (not telling her she needs to wear a hijab etc. cuz he doesn't feel like it's his duty especially since she knows it) as much as he would to his wife (telling her to put on a niqaab because he can't stand other men seeing his wife's face)?

              (those are just examples)
              :P

                  For you its your wifes honour, and for your father its your sisters honour.
