A true act of love is Sadaqah



God's Messenger (s) said: `In the sexual act of each of you there is a sadaqa. 'The Companions replied: `0 Messenger of God! When one of us fulfils his sexual desire, will he be given a reward for that?' And he said, `Do you not think that were he to act upon it unlawfully, he would be sinning? Likewise, if he acts upon it lawfully he will be rewarded.'
(Muslim)



`Three things are counted inadequacies in a man. Firstly, meeting someone he would like to get to know, and taking leave of him before learning his name and his family. Secondly, rebuffing the generosity that another shows to him. And thirdly, going to his wife and having intercourse with her before talking to her and gaining her intimacy, satisfying his need from her before she has satisfied her need from him.' (Daylami)

`Not one of you should fall upon his wife like an animal; but let there first be a messenger between you.' `And what is that messenger?' they asked, and he replied: `Kisses and words.'(Daylami)

`Of His signs is this: that He created for you spouses that you might find rest in them, and He ordained between you love and mercy.' (Quran, 30:21)
