Jihad is one of the greatest forms of devotion. Also, it is the battle and holy war in the way of Allah.
- The struggle for the expansion and glory of Islam.
- The defence of Islamic territory.
- The implementation of social justice.
When contemplating Jihad, one must also consider how important it is to fulfil one’s responsibilities as a good husband.
However, a wife must provide for and tend to her husband in every way possible. This is not a task that can be accomplished easily.
It may be difficult for those women to fulfil their roles if they are unaware of this aspect of their responsibilities. More so, it is a job for the woman who is aware that the job calls for a certain level of sagacity, style, and inventiveness on her part.
To be a good wife, a woman needs to win her husband’s affection and be a source of solace for him. This is the key to making her marriage work.
Also, she needs to encourage him to perform good deeds and discourage him from doing bad ones. Additionally, she must take the necessary precautions to ensure his continued health and well-being.
Her efforts will bear fruit in the form of a husband who is considerate and well-respected. An appropriate protector for his family, and a good father from whom the children will seek guidance and respect.
The woman possesses extraordinary power, as Allah, the All-Knowing, has bestowed upon her.
Therefore, it is up to her to decide whether or not the family will be successful and content or whether they will suffer.
A woman has the power to either make her house a heavenly haven or a fiery underworld.
She can steer her husband toward either the pinnacle of success or the pit of misfortune. The woman who possesses the qualities that Allah has bestowed upon her and who is conscious of her role as a spouse can transform her husband into a respected man. Even if he was previously considered the lowest of all men.
14 Proven ways to Make your Husband Happy In Islam
1. Beautiful Reception
Begin by giving a warm greeting after returning from whatever has kept you apart, be it work, school, travel, or anything else. Please introduce yourself to him with a smile. Put some makeup and perfume on, Start with the good news, and save the bad news after he has had some time to rest.
He should be greeted with loving and yearning sentences. Every effort should be made to ensure that the food is of the highest quality and served on time.
2. Enhance and Relax the Sound of Your Voice
It should only be used when speaking to your husband, not in front of any other men, including non-mahram men.
3. Having a Pleasant Fragrance and Improving One’s Appearance
Take excellent care of your physical health and fitness. Put on some nice clothes, perfume, and try to look your best. Bathe regularly, and after your period, remove any traces of blood, unpleasant odours, and especially hair from your body.
Make sure your husband doesn’t catch you wearing dirty clothes or being in rough shape. Avoid getting any kinds of ornamentation that aren’t allowed, like tattoos.
Utilize the fragrances, colours, and clothing styles your husband finds appealing.
Alter your appearance by experimenting with new hairstyles, perfumes, etc., every so often.
However, you should avoid going to extremes with these things, and of course, you should only act in this manner in front of other members of your mahram, both male and female.
Making your husband happy in Islam does not exempt having good intercourse. Move quickly to have sexual relations when your husband feels compelled to have them.
Maintain as much cleanliness and pleasant odour on your body as possible. This includes cleaning off any fluids that may have been released during sexual activity.
Talk to your husband about the things you love about him. Allow your husband to indulge all of his cravings in peace.
You should pick appropriate times and occasions to excite your husband and encourage him to have sexual relations with you, such as after he has returned from a trip, on the weekends, and so on.
5. Contentment with what Allah (the Most Powerful) has bestowed upon you.
It would help if you didn’t let the fact that your husband has a low-paying job or is poor keep you down. Instead, you should think about those less fortunate than you, including the sick and the disabled, and thank Allah (the Highest) for all He has provided for you.
It would help if you kept in mind that the trustworthy source of wealth is Imaan (faith) and righteousness and this would make your husband happy in Islam.
6. An Apathy Towards the Things of the World
You should not place your hope and interest in this world and should not ask your husband for many unnecessary things.

Rather that one should focus on the afterlife and make the most of the resources that Allah (the Subtle) has provided to enter paradise (Jannah).
To help those less fortunate and provide food for those who are hungry, you should encourage your husband to cut back on expenses and save some money.
The Prophet, peace upon him, revealed that most people in hell are women. This is because many women are ungrateful for the blessings bestowed upon them.
If you show gratitude to your spouse, he will love you more and want to make you happy.
Your spouse will get dissatisfied due to your lack of gratitude, and he will begin to wonder, “Why should I continue to be kind to her?” as a consequence. The help that I do for her is never appreciated by her, no matter what!
