At all times, men should appreciate their wives. There are two primary reasons for this.
(1) Her position as wife has placed her under the jurisdiction and control of her husband. It cowardly to cause grief to someone under your control.
(2) Her Deeni position. She is a Muslim.You are a Muslim and so is she. Just as you are engaged in Deeni service, so too is she. No one knows who is more maqbool (accepted and preferred) by Allah in terms of Deeni state. As far as the Deen is concerned, it is not axiomatic that a woman is always inferior to a man. It is possible that by Allah she is equal to her husband in rank or even superior than him. It is therefore unbecoming the husband to despise his wife. Allah Ta’ala accepts and appreciates even the insignificant acts of goodness of a weak and forlorn person and elevates his/her ranks.
