The Muslim Woman Increases More In Worship Than The Man In Ramadan

Questioner inquires: What is the Muslim Woman's agenda in Ramadan so that she can worship Allah by way of it and at the same time complete the services of the people of her household?
Sheikh Sulaymaan ar-Ruhaylee, may Allah preserve him, answers: We say that the Muslim Woman's agenda is that of the (Muslim) Mans. However the Muslim Women increases in worship. That is because when the women strives in the service of her husband and the members of her household and she prepares food for them that which will sufice them, then she is in obedience to Allah, 'azza wa jall, provided that she seeks the reward from Allah. Therefore, in this is a reward for her and also an increasement for her good deeds. And it is befitting for the Muslim Women when she is preparing the food that she busy's her tongue with the rememberance of Allah. So while she is cooking she glorifies Allah, while she is cooking she is saying tahleel (Laa ilaaha illa Allah/ None has the right to be worshipped except Allah), while she is cooking she is remembering Allah and in that she will have a tremendous reward. (Like this) preparing food will never divert her from the obedience of her Lord, Glorified is He, during the day of Ramadan. So congratulations to the Muslim Women who services her husband and the members of her household and she seeks the reward from Allah, 'azza wa jall, and by that she does not become heedless concerning the rememberance of Allah and she performs what she is capable of doing from the different acts of worship during the day of Ramadan. For indeed she has achieved a great success.
