One trait of a woman that is so destructible, yet taken lightly is ingratitude. Specifically towards the husband.
A hadith from the prophet strongly condemning such act is the following.
مَالِكٍ، عَنْ زَيْدِ بْنِ أَسْلَمَ، عَنْ عَطَاءِ بْنِ يَسَارٍ، عَنِ ابْنِ عَبَّاسٍ، قَالَ قَالَ النَّبِيُّ صلى الله عليه وسلم ” أُرِيتُ النَّارَ فَإِذَا أَكْثَرُ أَهْلِهَا النِّسَاءُ يَكْفُرْنَ ”. قِيلَ أَيَكْفُرْنَ بِاللَّهِ قَالَ ” يَكْفُرْنَ الْعَشِيرَ، وَيَكْفُرْنَ الإِحْسَانَ، لَوْ أَحْسَنْتَ إِلَى إِحْدَاهُنَّ الدَّهْرَ ثُمَّ رَأَتْ مِنْكَ شَيْئًا قَالَتْ مَا رَأَيْتُ مِنْكَ خَيْرًا قَطُّ ”
Narrated Ibn ‘Abbas:
The Prophet said: “I was shown the Hell-fire and that the majority of its dwellers were women who were ungrateful.”
It was asked, “Do they disbelieve in Allah?” (or are they ungrateful to Allah?)
He replied, “They are ungrateful to their husbands and are ungrateful for the favors and the good (charitable deeds) done to them. If you have always been good (benevolent) to one of them and then she sees something in you (not of her liking), she will say, ‘I have never received any good from you.”
Saheeh Al Bukhari
Volume 1, Book 2
Most women take the forbidden statement lightly, with the excuse that it is only a word of mouth, nothing serious. And that it is just to show frustration.
If it is nothing serious, and is without an adverse effect towards the mentality of the husband, how come that the prophet assure us of a place in hell for such kind of women?
A good wife should be deriving lesson from this… A work of mouth can be so destructible that it may send the woman to a place in hell.
May Allah forbid.
Conversely, thanking the husband, appreciating his efforts, by the will of Allah will earn the wives a reward.
Not only in this dunya, as may be seen in the reaction of the husband, more importantly in the Aakhirah.
