....takes the troubles away!
Its been brought to my attention that whilst many brothers are keen to point out the Health and beauty posts to their wives, they (according to anonymous comments left by wives) do not notice when the sisters DO make an effort.
So I asked my husband about this. He had this to say, 'Its not that the men don't notice. They do notice. They probably just don't comment.'
Muhammad Al Shareef mentioned something similar once and he likened it to buying a gift for someone. If you don't appreciate or thank that person for their gift. Is that person likely to give you another gift?
So give it a try, compliment your wife at least once a day and I guarantee it will encourage her to do the more. It doesn't even need to be on something physical.
A sister told me once that men are like big children. If they do something good for you, compliment them and express your gratitude, he will want to do more for you. Tell him he is the best husband in the world and he will want to be a better husband.
I say the same goes for women - I guess we're all really just big kids.
'Whoever does not show gratitude to the people has not shown gratitude to Allah.'
WARNING: HOW NOT TO DO IT.
Do not ask, 'Is that a new dress/top? Are they new earrings? Etc. If she's worn it before its not likely to go down very well....
