Hadith about Puting on the lights at sunset?


Assalam alaykum

What does our Shariah say about puting on the lights of ones home around sunset/maghrib time ?

Is there any hadith regarding it?


Al-Salam Alaykum

It is good to have enough light in the house. there are many Hadiths about it for example: Imam Sadiq said, “God likes beauty and embellishment and hates filthiness and showing poverty, and whenever God gives a blessing to his servant, he likes to see its effects. They asked, “How?” He said, “He should wear perfume and  clean clothes and  plaster his house white and clean his pollutions, to the extent that lighting a lamp before sunset removes poverty and increases sustenance.”
