Acknowledging one’s mistake

Q: I’m married Alhamdulillah. When my husband lectures me via a message, of course I don’t argue back. Then do I just not reply to him? Wouldn’t that sound like I’m ignoring him even though I’m reading all the messages. Its my fault I accept. But when I say something it sounds like I’m arguing. So when my husband is lecturing me via a message then do I just not reply or what should I say?


A: Reply to his message and show him that you have acknowledged your mistake.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
