Respected scholars of Islam, as-Salamu `alaykum! When a husband and wife have to part for a period of time from one another, perhaps because one is leaving on a business trip, etc., what is the proper way to say goodbye to one another? And, should they part with one another without first seeing each other in person? I guess this is kind of a double question. Thank you.
Scholars of Islam, as-salamu `alaykum. Can a husband make his wife work outside the house in order to buy unnecessary goods such as a fine car or the like, bearing in mind that he will be bothered if she refuses? What is the Islamic ruling on this?
As-Salamu `Alaykum. I would like to know whether it is necessary to get the permission of one's wife to work abroad for one year or more. I'm working abroad, and I have signed a two-year contract. I have heard that a husband needs his wife's approval to stay away more than four months. Is that right?
Does Islam enjoin that a wife should stay at home like an insignificant object, looked down upon and treated like a maid?
Dear Sheikh, As-Salamu `alaykum. My Christian wife and I are thinking about divorce. We have children. Who is going to bear the responsibilities of our children? Yarhamu kum Allah (May Allah have mercy on you)!
As-Salamu `alaykum. If a husband does not allow his wife to work, is it his duty to provide her with spending money for her needs?
Dear sheikh, As-Salamu `alaykum. I have only contracted nikah (marriage) with my wife with legal papers. But she still lives with her parents’. I am an immigrant in Canada and have applied for her immigration. After her papers come through, I will go there and consummate the marriage and have the walimah (wedding feast). My question is, am I responsible for her food and clothing or any other needs before the marriage is consummated and she is still living with her parents?
As-Salamu `alaykum!How long can a husband stay away from his wife, e.g., traveling abroad?
I am married to a Christian and she wants to eat pork, but one of my Muslim friends told me I can prevent her since the Bible even spoke against it. Can you tell me what the Bible exactly says about that?
Dear scholars, As-Salamu `alaykum. After marriage, what should the husband’s priority be? Is it the wife, who is completely dependent on the husband, or his parents? Am I wrong to ask my husband to live separately from but close to his parents? Does Islam preach that we live in an extended family? Jazakum Allah khayran.
Dear Brother, I am an American Muslimah married to an Arab Musim man. We have been married over 20 years and and have 4 children and he has raised my 2 children from a previous marriage as his own, for which I hope he will be rewared well.the problem is that a few months ago he got a job for me which I like very much. He has never held a steady job and calls himself a businessman. His business is however irregular and not very dependable. My job is teaching English as a foreign language as we live in an Arab country. I teach children and oversee the English Department of the school in the morning and teach adults (usually my children's age) in the afternoon. The job is respectable, comfortable, interesting and within walking distance of my home. The pay is well above average for this country. My husband is now trying to bully me into quitting the job. I don't want to disobey him just as disobedience. We really need the money that I make. As I already said he has no steady job and we are in a great deal of debt. We have lived for years without medical or dental care, we live in his mothers house, we have no home of our own. Sometimes we have to ask his elderly mother for food. Most of the things we have are castoffs of his relatives. Nothing ever gets repaired unless it affects his mother. When we are tight on money, he verbably abuses me and the children (the smallest of whom is 13 years old), and has thrown things at me. He sends me to relatives to borrow money which he never pays back. He has begun borrowing from my reveativly newly married daughters, and is causing stress in their marriages, because he doesn't pay back the debts. I feel that I have decieved them because he told them he would pay them and some other relatives out of my salary.as I said, I don't want to disobey him, but we are in a lot of trouble financially and I know that I can help with my job. How can it be right to cheat and lie to people and wrong to work?thank you very much and God bless you
