Q: There is a rumour going around that the hadith when a husband and wife look at each other with love, Allah Ta’ala looks down at them with mercy. (To the nearest meaning) is it fabricated? Is this true?
A: Making love with the wife is also an act of reward just as the hadeeth says that putting morsel of food into the wife’s mouth is also sadaqah, and for virtuous deeds you are blessed and the blessing can be interpreted as mercy.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
