Men and Household Chores
The Messenger pbuh used to assist with household chores without waiting to being asked to do so. Not only is it highly rewarding to follow this example but it enhances the love & affection within the home. It also makes one appreciate the time & effort that goes into such chores. It sets a good example for our offspring too. Many males wrongly feel it is an insult to engage in house work! Let us change that!
Mufti Ismail Menk
I have found that helping with the household chores bring me and my family closer, while doing chores we will discuss matters about life, and it helps to come to certain conclusions, that we never sit down to discuss.
