Pouring Water for One’s Wife

Pouring Water for One’s Wife

                 *سقى الماء للزوجة*                



                 Abbas Abu Yahya 

From Irbaad bin Sariyyah who said that the Messenger of Allaah ﷺ said:

        “ إِذَا سَقَى الرَّجُلُ امْرَأَتَهُ الْمَاءَ أُجِرَ “ .

‘When a man pours water for his wife to drink, he is rewarded.’

Irbaad said:

فقمت إليها فسقيتها و أخبرتها بما سمعت .

‘So I went to her and poured water for her to drink and informed her about what I heard.’

Collected by Bukhari in ‘Tareekh al-Kabeer’, Tabarani in ‘al-Kabeer’ and in ‘al-Awsaat’ & graded Hasan by Al-Albaani and he said:

‘From what strengthens this hadeeth is what is  collected by Bukhari and Muslim and others from Saad bin Abi Waqqas that the Messenger of Allaah-SallAllaahu alayhi wa Salam said:

إنَّكَ لن تُنْفِقَ نفقةً تبتَغي بها وجهَ اللهِ  إلَّا أُجِرْتَ عليها حتَّى ما تجعلُ في فَمِ امرأتِكَ

‘Indeed you do not spend an amount desiring by it the Face of Allaah, except that you are rewarded for it,  even what you place in your wife’s mouth.’
