Dear Sheikh! There are many uproars nowadays condemning women’s staying at home and blaming Muslim woman for preferring house to having a job. I myself see that the main role of a Muslim woman is her role as a mother and wife. Can you shed light on this?
Dear scholars, As-Salamu `alaykum. Is it permissible for the wife to open a personal bank account with her own income, or must she place her income in one account along with her husband's income, from which he could provide for the family? Jazakum Allah khayran.
Respected scholars, as-salamu `alaykum. I always hear about the duties of wives in Islam, but no one seems to address the responsibilities of the husband. What is a husband's duty to his wife? Is he responsible for her financially and if so, is that all? Who is to paint the house, mow the lawn, raise the children, cook, clean, wash and iron? It seems to me that all or most Muslim males in America go to the mosque or perform da`wah while their wives are burdened with all the other responsibilities. It is little wonder that most Western women look at the plight of women in Islam and refuse to convert because they fear the slave mentality of Muslim males. Jazakum Allahu Khayran.
