Benefit: A Husband Assisting His Wife with Household Chores Doesn’t Diminish or Negate His Masculinity

In the Name of Allāh, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy

Shaykh Muḥammad ibn ʿUmar Bāzmūl (حفظه الله) stated:

A man assisting his wife in the house doesn’t diminish or negate his masculinity, nor does it hinder his protection and maintenance of her.

Imām al-Bukhārī reported that al-Aswad said: "I asked ʿĀishah (رضي الله عنها): 'What did the Prophet (ﷺ) use to do inside his house?’ She answered: 'He use to keep himself busy serving the members of his family, and when it was time for the prayer, he would leave."

'Serving the members of his family’ meaning, assisting them in the different tasks that were binding upon them.


Translator's note:

There has come in some narrations a description of some of the things that he (ﷺ) would do in the house. ʿUrwah said: "I said to ʿĀishah (رضي الله عنها): 'O Mother of the Believers! What did the Prophet (ﷺ) use to do when he was with you?' She said: 'He would do what any of you would do when serving the members of your family. He would mend his sandals, sew his thowb, and patch his bucket."[Reported by Ibn Ḥibbān, and authenticated by Shaykh al-Albānī.]

Benefit: A Neglected Beneficial Type of Gift

In the Name of Allāh, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy

  It has become commonplace when one is told: “I have a gift for you”, that he looks toward the hand of the gifter to see if he is carrying something or waits for him to reach in his pocket, forgetting that from types of gifts one can receive—which is indeed considered to be from the best, most honourable and beautiful types of gifts—is the matter of knowledge. None can comprehend the magnitude of this type of gift except those who know the [true] status of knowledge. Ibn al-Qayyim mentions:

((وإنما الهدية النافعة كلمة يهديها الرجل الى أخيه المسلم))
Verily the beneficial gift is a word [of truth] a man gifts to his brother in Islām.

In the Name of Allāh, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy

Shaykh Rabīʿ ibn Hādī al-Madkhalī (حفظه الله) said: “Ibn Taymiyyah and Ibn al-Qayyim (رحمهما الله) lived in a country ruled by kings, and although the country was deviant in its belief, worship, and laws, they never attacked its rulers with their swords; rather, they fought the Mongols under their country's banner.”

Benefit: A Warning against Shaving the Beard

In the Name of Allāh, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy

 Shaykh ʿAbd al-ʿAzīz ibn Bāz (raḥimuhullāh) said: As for the beard, it is impermissible to shave it or take anything from it at any given time; rather it is an obligation to let it grow due to that which has been affirmed in the Ṣaḥīḥayn (Bukhārī and Muslim) on the authority of Ibn ʿUmar (raḍi Allāhu ʿʿʿanhu) who said, the Prophet (ṣallallāhu ʿalayhi wa-sallam) said:

Oppose the polytheists, lengthen the beard and clip the moustaches.

Likewise, Imām Muslim collected in his Ṣahīh, on the authority of Abū Hurayrah (raḍi Allāhu ʿʿʿanhu) who said, the prophet (ṣallallāhu ʿalayhi wa-sallam) said:

Trim the moustaches and grow the beards, oppose the Fire-Worshipers (Majūs).

This calamity has become greater in this time of ours due to many of the people opposing this Sunnah and waging war against (growing) the beards, and them being pleased with looking like women and disbelievers (by not growing their beards), nevertheless, even those who associate themselves with knowledge and educating [fall into this calamity of trimming the beard]. Verily to Allāh we belong and to Him we shall return. We ask Allāh to guide us and guide all of the Muslims to accept the Sunnah, adhere to it and call towards it, even if most of the people turn away from it. Allāh (alone) is sufficient for us, and He is the best disposer of affairs, there is no might nor power except with Allāh the Most High and Exalted.
