Ibn ‘Abbas (radiyallahu ‘anhuma) on adorning himself for his wife


Could you kindly reference this narration?

Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah Ibn Abbas (radiyallahu ‘anhuma) said:

“I love to adorn myself and smarten up for my wife just as I desire her to adorn herself for me, for Allah Ta’ala says, ‘And [women] have rights similar to those that [men have over them which should be fulfilled] with kindness’ (Surah Al Baqarah, Verse: 228)”



Imam Abu Bakr ibn Abi Shaybah, Imam Tabari and Imam Ibn Abi Hatim (rahimahumullah) have recorded this statement of Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah ibn ‘Abbas (radiyallahu ‘anhuma).

(Musannaf Ibn Abi Shaybah, 19608, Tafsir Tabari and Tafsir Ibn Abi Hatim, Surah Al Baqarah, Verse: 228. Also see Tafsir Ibn Kathir)



And Allah Ta’ala knows best.
