Even lifting a morsel of food to the mouth of the wife has been given the significance of ‘ibādat(worship). It is an act of love by which the husband derives thawāb (reward in the Hereafter).
It was part of the Uswāh Hasanāh (Noble and beautiful Character) of Rasulullāh sallallāhu ‘alayhi wasallam to engage in light-hearted talk with his wives. Hadhrat Abu Hurāirah (radhiallāhu ‘anhu) said:
“Allah loves a man who caresses his wife. Both of them are awarded thawāb because of this loving attitude and their rizq (worldly provision and earning) is increased.”
