Rich Rewards

A Hadith says:
Treat them (your wives) well and be kind to them for they are your partners and committed helpers. (Tirmidhi)

Spending for wife's comfort
The Prophet (sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) instructed: Spend as much as possible upon your family. (Kanz)

Reward of everyday chores
The Prophet (sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) said; Homemaking (Allah-willing) raises the status of a woman to the level of those who make Jihad.

Women to enter paradise before men
The Prophet (sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) said: O women, the pious among you will enter Paradise before pious men.

Great value of women's actions
The Prophet (sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) said: the virtue of a pious woman is equal to the reward of worship of 70 saints. (Kanz)

Sharing domestic work
The Prophet (sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) said; Helping wives (in their domestic work) earns (men) the reward of charity. (Kanz)

Beyond imagination
The Hadith mentions: None of the dwellers of Heaven or Earth know about the coolness of her eyes she (a woman) will get for her labor pains. She receives for every suck of the child and every mouthful of milk the reward of a good deed. If she is kept awake by her child during the night she receives the reward of freeing 70 slaves for the sake of Allah.
