Hadith Explanation

Among the Workers of Allah

A Sahabah (radi Allahu anhu) said, "O Prophet of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) I have a wife. When I meet her she says, 'Welcome my chief and the chief of my household.' When she finds me in a sad mood she says, 'Why worry about this world when the provision for your afterlife is being earned (anyway)?'" Upon hearing this, the Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said, "Inform that lady that she is among the workers of Allah, and she earns half the rewards of Jihad." [Kanz]

This is the great reward for just verbally honouring one’s husband. We should try to greet our spouses with cheer and encouragement.
