In Islamic studies, the scholars agree that the minimum standards for wives are "kifāyah" and "ma'rūf", it's just that these standard values have not been broken down into nominal numbers. This article derives from this still general standard to be more specific in the Jombang area by referring to the KHL (the necessities of a decent life). To get a complete concept, the author refers to the hadiths of the Prophet Muhammad, scientific articles, websites, and books related to income, and asks directly the KHL price in the market in the Jombang area. The analysis obtained shows that the minimum standard of living for a wife in the Jombang region is IDR 819,533/month or IDR 27,318/day. From the values that emerge, the head of the family can make a policy whether to manage the internal financial circulation of the family or also to spend outside the family, such as alms or others.
