Ramadan Revelations: Day Sixteen
Since childhood we see our mothers and sisters working in the kitchen, doing the daily routine household chores of our home.
When we grow up, many of us think that housework is beneath us, and some of us even feel that it will undermine our status and position if we help our wives and families with this work.
In doing so, we easily forget how the Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) behaved when he was in his home.
His beloved wife Aisha (radiallaahu ‘anhaa) was asked about what the Messenger of Allâh (sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) used to do in his house, she said,
"He used to serve and help his family, then when the time for prayer came, he would go out to pray."
(Reported by al-Bukhaari, al-Fath, 2/162).
