Helping one's wife with the housework

by Sheikh Muhammed Salih Al-Munajjid

Many men think that housework is beneath them, and some of them think that it will undermine their status and position if they help their wives with this work.

The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him), used to sew his own clothes, mend his own shoes and do whatever other work men do in their homes. (Reported by Imaam Ahmad in al-Musnad, 6/121; Saheeh al-Jaami, 4927).

This was said by his wife Aaishah (may Allaah be pleased with her), when she was asked about what the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) used to do in his house; her response described what she herself had seen. According to another report, she said: "He was like any other human being: he would clean his clothes, milk his ewe and serve himself." (Reported by Imaam Ahmad in al-Musnad, 6/256; al-Silsilat al-Saheehah, 671). She (may Allaah be pleased with her) was also asked about what the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) used to do in his house, and she said, "He used to serve his family, then when the time for prayer came, he would go out to pray." (Reported by al-Bukhaari, al-Fath, 2/162).

If we were to do likewise nowadays, we would achieve three things:

  • We would be following the example of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him)
  • We would be helping our wives
  • We would feel more humble, not arrogant.

Some men demand food instantly from their wives, when the pot is on the stove and the baby is screaming to be fed; they do not pick up the child or wait a little while for the food. Let these Ahaadeeth be a reminder and a lesson.

Expert Witness

One day at a trial, an eminent psychologist was called to testify. A severe, no-nonsense professional, he sat down in the witness chair, unaware that its rear legs were set precariously on the back of the raised platform.

"Will you state your name?" asked the district attorney. Tilting back in his chair he opened his mouth to answer, but instead catapulted head-over-heels backward and landed in a stack of exhibits and recording equipment.

Everyone watched in stunned silence as he extricated himself, rearranged his disheveled clothes and hair and was re-seated on the witness stand. The glare he directed at onlookers dared anyone to so much as smirk.

"Well, doctor," continued the district attorney without changing expression, "we could start with an easier question."
