A Wife Can Be A Source Of Reward!

Assalaamu ‘Alaikum In the name of Allah, the All-Merciful, the Most Merciful

 

The Prophet (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) – said: .”Actions are but by intentions, and everyone will have what he intended. (Al-Bukhâri, Muslim and others) A Wife Can Be A Source Of Reward! Ibn Mas’ood (ra) related that the Prophet (saw) said; “When a man spends on his family seeking the reward for that from Allaah, then it is charity on his behalf.” [Saheeh Bukhaari] Sa’d Ibn Abee Waqaas (ra) related that Allaah’s Messenger said; “Indeed, whenever you spend seeking Allaah’s Countenance for doing so, you will be rewarded for it – even for what (i.e., the food) you put in the mouth of your wife.” [Saheeh Bukhaari] Abu Dharr related that Allaah’s Messenger said; “In the private part of each of you there is charity.“ The companions asked; “O Messenger Of Allaah, does one of us fulfil his (sexual) desire (i.e., have sexual relations with his wife) and still get rewarded?!“ He said; “Yes, do you not see that if one were to use it for haraam (i.e., if one was to have sexual relations with a woman other than his wife) – there would be a sin upon him? And similar is the case of the one who uses it for halaal (purposes)! He has his reward!” [Saheeh Muslim]
