What should one do if ones wife refuses to wear scarf?

Question ID: 24519

Salaam Mufti
I am married for seven years.
Recently I have joined jamat and this has uplifted me spiritually.
I have become a better muslim altogethe.
Unfortunately my wife does not approve or will not join me in the effort.
She gets offended whenever I remind her of salaat and refuses to listen to me with regards to islamic matters like wearing a scarf.
Whenever I give dawat it becomes a big argument and fight which stresses both of us out. I love my wife and want the best for her and our children but what can I do if she refuses to wear a scarf.

Carry on the work. Increase Nafl Ibadaat at home. Start Taleem for min 5 minutes at home. Encourage - do not force. Do not shout. Do not argue. Do not fight. Make Istighfaar and Duaa.
Increase Sabr.
