A woman serving her husband-Explained by Shaykh Fawzan


Question: May Allah give you good noble Shaykh, the questioner says: ‘We hear a lot these days, that the wife is not required to serve her husband as it relates to cooking and washing clothes. Therefore we would like from you a word to explain this affair.

Shaykh Fawzan: The woman now has evolved; she doesn’t take care of her husband. Now if you need her to take care of some of your needs, she doesn’t stay in the house. The husband comes and sits in the house and waits and she doesn’t come (home); or she comes at the last part of the night. Now the women are rebellious. It is from the Sunnah for the woman to serve her husband. The female companions, may Allah be pleased with them, served their husbands, they cooked and took care of the home and they were the female companions, the best women of this nation. Faatima the daughter of Muhammad, peace and blessings of Allah are upon him and may Allah be pleased with her; used to carry water on her neck such that the rope left a mark on her neck. She requested from the Messenger that he provide her with a servant and he refused. He refused to provide her with a servant and he ordered her to seek help by remembrance of Allah and seeking forgiveness from Allah; and she was the daughter of Muhammad, peace and blessings of Allah are upon him.
