Sharing Domestic Work

The Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said, “Helping wives (in their domestic work) earns (men) the reward of charity.” [Kanz-ul-Amaal]

The Prophet’s example teaches us to care for women by sharing their domestic chores. Narrated Al-Aswad (radi Allahu anhu): “I asked Aisha (radi Allahu anha), ‘What did the Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) do at home?’ She said, ‘He used to work for his family and when he heard the call for the prayer, he would go out.'” [Sahih Bukhari]

Instead of the wife or husband complaining about housework, each should know that it earns reward/hasanaat for them. Therefore, there is no harm in doing whatever one has to. We should try to keep the reward in mind to cheerfully get on with our married lives.
