There's nothing nicer than washing a sinkful of dishes in warm soapy water. My mom used to enjoy doing the dishes, she found it relaxing. Id agree with her as well, (although I do prefer the dishwasher lol).

Do you also find washing dishes therapeutic?

I donĀ“t but I could invite you to here to relax a little - specially after I have baked or cooked something.

:D

Free dishbrush includes the offer and maybe some cookies too.

Not at all. I wish I had a genie who would do the dishes for me. ^o)
Oh, wait. I do have a dishwasher. :) But I would so love it that a dish gets cleaned the very instant I'm done using it - no loading the dishwasher and a very clean sink.

Oh, so many wishes....

Assalamu-alaikum,


One can spend the time during such chores (and all other times when not intensely engaged in activity) in the Zikr (remembrance) of Allah.
This is referred to as Wuqoof-e-qalb (Vigilance of the Heart).

In this way, that activity can become a means of worship, reward and nearness to our Rabb, in shaa Allah (versus activities with benefits that are just related to this dunya).

With the responses, lol, you guys must be thinking this is a joke thread and that Im weird for thinking washing dishes is therapeutic ;D.

I suppose we'r so busy who has time to enjoy washing dishes haha. I myself find it a chore loading the dishwasher but that's a separate issue lol.

Washing dishes by hand gets really tiring when you have to do it all day. But generally, doing a sinkful of dishes in hot, sudsy water is nice sometimes - not those big greasy sticky pans though, thats a big turn off:mmokay:

Thanks for the responses everyone.
