A narration on the virtue of assisting one’s spouse

Question

What is the authenticity of this Hadith?

“The man who helps his wife in house chores, Allah gives him rewards of a year in which he has fasting all days and prayed all nights.” (Biharul Anwar and Jami’ul Akhbar)

 

Answer

Although assisting with the house chores is a Sunnah, I have not come across this particular Hadith in any authentic primary Hadith source. The sources mentioned above are Shi’i sources.

The Hadith should not be quoted until it can be sourced and verified.

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
