Benefit regarding men being active in the home:

وعن الأسود بن يزيد قال‏:‏ سئلت عائشة رضي الله عنها‏:‏ ما كان النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم يصنع فى بيته‏؟‏ قالت‏:‏ كان يكون فى مهنة أهله -يعنى‏:‏ خدمة أهله- فإذا حضرت الصلاة، خرج إلى الصلاة

Al-Aswad bin Yazid (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: ‘Aishah (May Allah be pleased with her) was asked: “What did Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) used to do inside his house?” She answered: “He used to keep himself busy helping members of his family, and when it was the time for Salat (the prayer), he would get up for prayer.

[Reported by al-Bukhari]

Shaikh Ibn ul-Uthaymeen rahimahullah said in explanation:

“So for example if a person is in his house then from the Sunnah is for him to make tea himself, cook if he knows how, and wash what needs to be washed. All of this is from the Sunnah. If you did that you will receive reward like the reward of Sunnah in emulating the Messenger sallahu alayhi wa salam and out of humility to Allah”

[Sharh Riyad as-Saliheen 6/224]
