27 Jumada Al-Awwal 1421 A.H., August 27,2000
On the authority of Abu Hurairah (may Allah be pleased with him) who reported that Allah's Messenger (may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said:
Allah also shows mercy to a woman who gets up during the night and prays, and awakens her husband for the same purpose, but if he refuses, she sprinkles water on his face.
(Reported by Abu Dawud)
1. This hadith urges the Muslims to be cooperative in matters of worship and righteous deeds. The couples are incited to awake each other for praying at night and seek help of whatever makes them active.
