I have a question if that is OK. I always see negative reactions when women ask about good deeds or even rewards. We all can agree that everyone desires to spend alot of time with those who they love and care about. The other day on a website I saw a question asked by a woman on if the fact that since men get Hoor in paradise does that mean that women spend less time with their husbands? Then automatically whoever answered the question said this is selfish and possessive. So for a woman to desire to spend lots of time with her husband is selfish? I mean even men desire to spend lets of time with their wives, why isn’t that also considered selfish and possessive? Does that mean men are allowed to desire to spend lots of time with their wives which is why they get that. But women cannot desire the same as this is selfish on their part? Does that mean that women should desire to spend little or no time with their husbands? Does the presence of Hoor actually reduce the time a woman spends with her husband which is why desiring to spend more time with one’s husband is selfish?
