Salaam Anas
This is really wonderful. Great Hadith PBUH. Great Idea and all the best to you.
Tell me if you are ever in Amman.

Yes (tpbremer) , this quote is from the prophet Muhammed -pease be upon him-, This is not very strange from you to be surprised, I know that the image of Islam in the west is distorted ((for many reasons: political ..etc )),
so, I invite you to read the holy Quran and read about Islam from it's real sources .. then I'm sure the image will be changed completely.

Hi Anas,
I am glad this was well received in here :)
Very well done considering being your first entry, man you could've seen my first, it was a disaster :)
Very well done and keep up the good work,

The composition of this photo is what makes it. By the placement of the elements, where you have cropped etc, has turned what could have been a boring flower shot into a very interesting omage that works very well. The attention to the overall poster presentation gives it a finished feel and helps tie it in really well to the challenge.

I'm not really a fan of how this is framed.

If you want to cheer up your wife, I would go for somewhat more reddish colours! Lacks a bit of contrast.

Very well Said, a message well conveyed. I wonder how it will be received in here, thus; I am adding it to my favorites to see how it will do.
Now aside from the Hadith, which is too wonderful to be considered in scoring, and talking only about your photograph:
I find the composition really wonderful and applied to too many occasions, but having dear wife in it, gives the message clearly,
The picture is not as sharp as I would like it to be, can't blame you much for it in here as we have to downsize it to meet the rules in here. If you think the large version is not sharp enough, then you might need to conceder this.
Now the last thing I don't like, is the background, it looks too much like the flowers, same tonal range, same colors, same contrast, gives kind of a flat feeling. I'd love it to be a different colors, and some light in it.
This is of course my humble opinion, I hope my comment is taken in a positive way, all the best, 6
Keep up the,

Ironic, that this is a quote from Muhammed, and the way many Muslim women are treated.

Too true.

I very much like the quote
