      Yes the husband has certain rights the same as the wife. If this means that his or her rights are ignored, it is for sure oppression. Moreover such problems may threaten the intimacy and integrity of the family.

        It is one of the teachings of Islam that a woman should make herself look beautiful for her husband, so that her husband sees of her that which he likes. That is one of reasons as to why it is forbidden for a woman to dress in mourning for more than three days, except in the case of her husband’s death, when she is permitted to mourn for four months and ten days. We find proof of this in the hadeeth narrated by al-Bukhaari from Zaynab the daughter of Umm Salamah, who said, “I came to Zaynab bint Jahsh, the wife of the Prophet (peace be upon him) when her brother died. She called for perfume and applied it to herself and then said,

        “I am not wearing perfume because I need to, but because I heard the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) saying from the minbar, “It is not permitted for a woman who believes in Allah (subhaanahu wa ta’aalaa) and the Last Day to grieve for more than three days, except for her husband, (for whom she may grieve) four months and ten days.” (Fath al-Bari, 9/484, Kitab al-talaq, bab ihdad al-mutawafa 'anha zawjuha.)



        The Muslim woman makes herself beautiful for her husband by means of make-up, clothing, etc. In this way she will appear more beautiful and attractive to him, and make her husband, Allah willing, love her more. This was the practice of the righteous women of the pious predecessors, who used to devote their time to worshipping Allah and reading Qur’aan. Foremost among them was ‘Aa’ishah (may Allah be pleased with her), although there were many others. They would wear fine clothes and jewellery at home, aswell as when they were traveling, in order to make themselves look beautiful for their husbands.
        Women lost their modesty when men lost their gheerah..” .

          Very important. It goes both ways as well. Not doing that is both selfish and lazy. And don't be surprised if a husband in such a scenario looks for another wife.
          ***Reminder- It was narrated from ‘Abd-Allaah ibn Mas’ood that RasulAllah :saw: said: Whoever reads Tabaarak allaathi bi yadihi’l-mulk [i.e., Soorat al-Mulk] every night, Allaah will protect him from the torment of the grave.
          And never think that Allah is unaware of what the wrongdoers do. He only delays them for a Day when eyes will stare [in horror]. [Quran, 14:42]

            What if she doesn't look nice even after beautifying herself
