Obligation of housework for wife
Q: Is it an obligation for the wife to cook and clean in the home or can she delegate the work to a 3rd party?
A: It’s perfectly fine to delegate or order a takeaway etc. Also, if she comes from a family/background where she does not normally do these things, her husband must pay for a servant/cleaner/cook to do it.
However, the wife should see it as an opportunity to earn rewards by serving her family, a prostitute was granted Paradise by giving a dog some water to drink, so what about giving meals and drinks to believing Muslims?
