Good companionship with the wife/wives–The Messenger is the best example to follow

Aisha (radiyallaahu-anhaa) said: The Messenger of Allaah would give me the cup and drink from it whilst I was on my menses; then I would give it to him and he would search for the place where my lips made contact (with the cup) and he would put his lips on the same place (i.e. he would place his lips on the same place and drink the contents). [1]

Al-Allaamah Abdul-Muhsin Al-Abbaad (may Allaah preserve him) said: This shows the Prophet’s (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam) good companionship with his wives and kindness towards them.  [2]
