On the authority of Umm Dardaa who said:

“Abu ad-Dardaa would practice Ghusl, then come while he was shivering and warm himself with me.”
On the authority of Ibn ‘Umar who said:

“I would practice Ghusl from Janabah, then warm myself with my wife before she practiced Ghusl.”
On the authority of al-Haarith, who narrated on the authority of ‘Ali that:

He used to practice Ghusl from Janabah, then come and warm himself with his wife before she practiced Ghusl, then he would pray without touching water [i.e. without performing ablution].
On the authority of Abu Mu’awiyyah, on the authority of al-‘Amash, on the authority of Ibraheem, that;

“‘Alqamah used to warm himself with his wife, then get up and make the ablution he makes for Salah.”

“That was the life of [the tribe of] Quraysh during the winter.”

Indeed I would warm myself with her during the winter, as I would cool myself with her during the summer.”
