Feed [TROID] Benefit: A Man Assisting His Wife with the Household Chores Doesn’t Diminish or Negate His Masculinity

In the Name of All?h, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy
Shaykh Mu?ammad ibn ?Umar B?zm?l (???? ????) stated:

A man assisting his wife in the house doesn’t diminish or negate his masculinity, nor does it hinder his protection and maintenance of her.

Im?m al-Bukh?r? reported that al-Aswad said: “I asked ??ishah (??? ???? ????): ‘What did the Prophet (?) use to do inside his house?’ She answered: ‘He use to keep himself busy serving the members of his family, and when it was time for the prayer, he would leave."

‘Serving the members of his family’ meaning, assisting them in the different tasks that were binding upon them.
Translator’s note:

There has come in some narrations a description of some of the things that he (?) would do in the house. ?Urwah said: “I said to ??ishah (??? ???? ????): ‘O Mother of the Believers! What did the Prophet (?) use to do when he was with you?’ She said: ‘He would do what any of you would do when serving the members of your family. He would mend his sandals, sew his thowb, and patch his bucket.” [Reported by Ibn ?ibb?n, and authenticated by Shaykh al-Alb?n?.]
