Husband is extremely verbally abusive, is it my fault?

I have tried to speak with him in calmer times to explain that his behaviour of getting angry over minuscule things then blaming me for his vile language is a classic example of verbal and emotional abuse, and suggested we look into counselling or advice from any Imam, Sheikh, scholar etc that he feels comfortable to speak with, but he refuses.

Just after our nikkah and honeymoon, my husband abandoned me

He has completely shut me out of his life and I have no idea of his whereabouts. His mother on the other hand, apologized to me on his behalf but mentioned that her son had made a mistake, but not a crime. Since then, there’s been no sign of him. He has a job that he should get back to, for he had lied about the business trip and he has a loan to take care of. I’ve known him for 3 years and he has always been a responsible person when it comes to his job and finances.
