GIVING IN CHARITY FROM A HUSBAND’S PROPERTY

عَنْ عَائِشَةَ رَضِيَ اللَّهُ عَنْهَا عَنْ النَّبِيِّ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ قَالَ إِذَا أَنْفَقَتْ الْمَرْأَةُ مِنْ طَعَامِ بَيْتِهَا غَيْرَ مُفْسِدَةٍ فَلَهَا أَجْرُهَا وَلِلزَّوْجِ بِمَا اكْتَسَبَ وَلِلْخَازِنِ مِثْلُ ذَلِك

Narrated `Aisha:The Prophet (pbuh) said, ‘When a woman gives in charity from her house meals in Allah’s Cause without spoiling her husband’s property, she will get a reward for it, and her husband will also get the reward for his earnings and the storekeeper will get a reward likewise.’

Lessons:

  1. It is obligatory upon a wife to preserve her husband’s property.
  1. Any charity carried out by a wife using her husband’s wealth (for instance preparing food for guests), both will be rewarded on the condition that the husband’s wealth is not spoiled.
  1. The husband will be rewarded for the charity performed by his wife using a portion of his wealth.

A husband should be grateful and tolerant when his property is used by his wife to help the needy!
