عن عبد الله بن عمرو بن العاص رضي الله عنهما مرفوعاً: «الدنيا متاع، وخير متاعها المرأة الصالحة».

‘Abdullāh ibn ‘Amr ibn al-‘Ās (may Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger (may Allah's peace and blessings be upon him) said: "This world is but an enjoyment and the best of its enjoyments is a righteous woman."
Sahih/Authentic. - [Muslim]

Explanation

Everything in this world is a temporary enjoyment. However, its best enjoyment is a righteous woman, who has her eye on the Hereafter. She is described in this statement of the Prophet (may Allah's peace and blessings be upon him): "When he looks at her, he is pleased; when he swears an oath concerning her, she fulfills it; and when he is away from her, she safeguards him in regard to herself and his wealth."
