Dear Brother in Islam,
The answer of your question is as follows:

Women hold a respected place in Islam. This religion places the responsibilities of women onto the shoulders of men. Men are constrained to earn a livelihood and to feed and clothe them. Besides, they have been instructed to approach them with compassion and kindness and prohibited from being harsh towards women. Allah Almighty declared women as a favour and reward for men. The Glorious Qur¡¯an says, ¡°They are your garments and you are their garments¡­¡± (Suratul Baqarah 2 V: 187) Though men have been granted a position of leadership over women and declared the head of the family, are enjoined not to exercise this superiority without appropriate reason. They should know that Allah Almighty is a party between them and their wives. For, they join to marriage bond following the commands of Allah Almighty and become lawful for men. The protection and refuge of Allah Almighty is always available to them. If the husbands are cruel unto them and maltreat them, they will be guilty of breaching the trust they contracted with Allah Almighty. The Prophet of Islam (SAW) is reported as having said, ¡°O people! Fear Allah in regard to your wives. You have taken them in marriage under the protection of Allah¡­¡± (Muslim) To tolerate all the torture of husband is the sign of patience and obedience. Allah Almighty showers His particular blessing to those who are patiently perseveres. The Glorious Qur¡¯an says, ¡°Verily, Allah is with those who are patiently persevere¡±. (Suratul Baqarah 2 V: 153) And a woman, who complies with the commands of Allah Almighty and obeys her husband, will enter paradise by whatever door she wishes. It is narrated on the authority of Anas (RA) that the Apostle of Allah said, ¡°If a woman offers the five daily prayers, keeps fasts of Ramazan, guards her honour and obeys her husband will enter Heaven by whatever gate she likes¡±. (Al-Hilyah)

And Allah know
