One good deed, three people rewarded

Question

Please provide the reference for the following Hadith:

“When a woman gives charity from her husband’s house, she will get the reward for it, her husband will also be rewarded, the one keeping the money also gets rewarded. The reward of each them will not be decreased at all by the reward of the other. The husband is rewarded since he earned the money and the wife is rewarded since she gave the charity.”

 

Answer

Imam Tirmidhi (rahimahullah) has recorded this Hadith worded as you have cited.

(Sunan Tirmidhi, Hadith: 671. Declared sound by Imam Tirmidhi)

 

Imam Bukhari and Imam Muslim (rahimahumallah) have also recorded this narration with slight variation in the wording.

(Sahih Bukhari, Hadith: 1441 and Sahih Muslim, Hadith; 1024)

 

 

And Allah Ta’ala knows best.
