Abstract: In this era of modernisation and globalisation, there are many challenges that people face. Husbands, wives, parents, grandparents, children, students and the society in general encounter many obstacles and challenges in life. Both wives who are working and housewives as home-makers find it difficult to lead a balanced life. This is especially true of wives who have to juggle their roles as members of the labour force, mother and wife. In the course of acting out their roles, women sometimes aspire to be ideal wives but fall short of that aspiration when they do not have the support of their husbands. Modernisation and globalisation have brought about significant changes in social life which also resulted in changes in the mindset. The notion of the ideal wife in Malay society has become a matter of great concern, partly because of the perception that the ideal wife, due to her being the obedient wife has greater chances of entering heaven. In this thesis, I seek to examine the views and perceptions of the ideal wife by referring to a wide range of available sources. I examine the various interpretations of the Holy Qur?an and Hadith by the dominant Malay ulama with regard to the perception of an ideal wife in Malay society. I look at the teachings of the religious teachers in the new media such as Youtube, I also elicit the views of the wives and religious elite, and look at how notions of the ideal wife are expressed in novels and films produced in Malay society.
