Reward from Allah



Reward from Allah


Once Asma bint Yazeed came to the Messenger of Allah (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) and said:

"O Messenger of Allah! You are dearer to me than my parents. I was sent a Muslim women to speak to you on their behalf. Indeed, you, Messenger of Allah, for both men and women. Most of our time we spend in the four walls of our homes. We have always associated the need to carry out our duties - satisfy our spouses, giving birth children, look after their houses.

Despite all this, men outnumber us, getting a reward from Allah for the things which we have no opportunities. They perform their required daily and Friday prayers in the mosque, visit the sick, participate in the funeral, perform the pilgrimage. But most importantly, they fight in the way of Allah. When they go on a pilgrimage or jihad, we take care of their property, caring for their children, sew clothes for them. Are we not going to have our share of their reward?"

The Messenger of Allah (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam), turning to his companions, who sat around him, he asked:

"Have you ever heard a woman, ask a better question?" They said, "O Messenger of Allah! We never thought that a woman could ask such a question."

The Messenger of Allah (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam), turning to Asma, said:

"Listen carefully, and then go and tell the women who sent you that if a woman is to obey her husband, perform household chores so that he was satisfied with it, then for that she will receive the same reward as her husband, fulfilling all her obligations to Allah."

Thus, the Messenger of Allah (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) gave the good news to all women about what rewards await for showing tolerance. See what a mercy God has shown to us. We can make Savab simply for the fact that we sit at home and doing our chores. While a lot of men need to try to do this. The Messenger of Allah (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) said:

"Those of women who know about the reward for it and is patient receives the same remuneration as Shahid." (Narrated by Ibn Mas'ud, gave al-Tabarani)

InshaAllah, we will of those who patiently and be grateful to husband and get a great reward from Allah!
