Making cooking a good deed

Sadly many people today look down upon cooking in the house and don't want to do it. Others do it, but without the right intention.

If one thinks about it, one can earn a huge reward if one makes the intention that providing the food or drink will give energy to the eater to pray, live, and do good deeds. So if one intends cooking for that reason, then inshaAllah one will get the reward of the eaters ibadah (worship) and other good deeds (such as allowing the person to go work, to help people, to fast and so on).

Thus you see the feminist opposition to women cooking (although both genders can and should cook) is very superficial and limited to the material life.

Let's try to do good deeds and help others to do them, and remind people of them:)

The Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) said "Actions are according to intentions"
