REWARD FOR SHOWING LOVE:
The Prophet (sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) said: "one would be rewarded for anything that he does seeking the pleasure of Allah even the food that he puts in the mouth of his wife".
Never underestimate the seemingly little things as putting food in your wife’s mouth, opening the car door for her, etc. The Prophet (sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) used to extend his knee to his wife to help her up to ride the camel’
TILL DEATH AND BEYOND
It is not enough to love your wife. You have to love what she loves as well. Her family, her loved ones must also become your loved ones. Love for the wife should never end. We believe in life after death where does who did good in the world will be joined with their spouses. (Surah Al Zukhruf 43:70)
The Prophet (sallallahu alaihi wa sallam)’s love for Khadijah (radhiallahu amha), his wife of 25 years, extended to include all those she loved and continued even after her passing away. It was many years after her passing away and he never forgot her and whenever a goat was slaughtered in his house he would send portions to Khadijah (radhiallahu anha)’ family and friends.
