Although housekeeping is a duty of women, it must
be realized that running the affairs of a house is not an easy task
A housewife, however much time she spends on housekeeping,
would not be able to do it all This is especially true when one has to
entertain one's guests or when one becomes ill, etc Housekeeping is tiresome
for a housewife and thus husbands are expected to assist their wives in
It is not fair that a man sits around the house idly
while his wife remains busy in so much works It is only proper for him
to help his wife as much as possible whenever he can. This help is a sign
of affection which attracts one's wife to her husband and family
It is not at all a manly act that a man should not
touch anything around the house, or orders his wife around A house is not
a command headquarters, but a place of love, kindness, and cooperation
Dear sir! do not think that working at home is degrading
On the contrary, through your assistance, your wife would appreciate you
The Prophet (SA) of Islam. who is the most revered
person in history, used to help in the housework"
Ayeshah, the wife of the Prophet (SA) said :'Whenever
the Prophet (SA) was free from his work, he used to sew his clothes, repair
his shoes and used to work at home like other men':"
