Hadith Explanation

Same Act Rewarded in Marriage

Once a Companion, having heard the Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) praise coitus with one’s wife as a charitable act for which a divine reward was to be awaited, asked: “O Messenger of Allah! Would a person satisfy his lust and anticipate divine reward for it?” The Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “Would he be punished if he does so with the wrong partner? In the same way, fulfillment of sensual satisfaction in the legitimate way shall be rewarded.” [Sahih Muslim]

Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) created us and wants us to live in a manner that fulfills our needs and satisfies us.

He (subhana wa ta’ala) knows better than us what suits us and will work out to our benefit in the long and short run.

On top of this, for following His Manufacturer’s Instructions for Best Use, He rewards us.

So, He (subhana wa ta’ala) has told us to have relations with our spouses with the expectation of being rewarded for it, while that same act outside the bonds of marriage is forbidden and punished.
