Supporting the Husband in Da’wah


9. Be your husband’s rock

When we support our husbands’ efforts in da’wah, we will be rewarded too. Allow him time to spend in this cause and help him in any way you can. Remember the hadith in which Asmâ bint Yazîd ibn As-Sakan radiyallahu anha came to the Prophet sallalahu alayhe wasallam and said: “Oh Messenger of Allâh, may my father and mother be sacrificed for you. I have come to you on behalf of the women. We have believed in you. We do not go out and we remain in your homes. We are your source of physical pleasure. We carry your children. A man goes out to pray jumu’ah and jamâ’ah and follows the janazah. And if you go out for hajj, or umrah, or jihad, we look after your wealth. We wash your clothing. We raise your children. Shall we not share in the reward?”

The Prophet sallalahu alayhe wasallam turned to his companions and said: “Have you ever heard anything a woman has said better than what she has said?” Then he said to her: “Understand O Woman, and inform the other women. Indeed a woman’s perfection of her relationship with her husband, her seeking his pleasure, and doing that which he approves of is equivalent to all of that.” Asmâ left exclaiming “La ilâha illa Allâh!” (Adh-Dhahabi, Siyar A’lam An-Nubala).

    Jazaakumullahu khayra. Is the hadeeth authentic and which book of hadeeth can it be found in?

    Where’s the da’wah? I don’t know about the UK; but in the U.S. nobody is giving “da’wah”. We’re just arguing and fighting amongst one another.

    Assalamu Alaikum…just happened to be passing by and notice this excerpt from an article I wrote for SISTERS Magazine and then notice Sajid’s question about the hadeeth…

    well the hadeeth is not Saheeh, and it can be found quoted by Imam adh-Dhahabi in Siyar a’laam an-Nubalaa, however I asked a scholar about it and he said that the meaning of the hadith is true and I can quote it if I mention that although it is not saheeh, the meaning is correct (which I did in the footnotes of the original article).

    Jazakumullahu Khairan
