The prominent Muslim scholar and Da`iyah, Zeinab Mostafa, states: The Qur’an teaches us: “And command your household to pray and be patient and consistent in reminding them.” (Taha 20: 132)
That is the best advice to every head of a household. Husbands should consider the environment they and their family were brought up in, and try their best to create a different positive environment that will help the wife change. As a husband, you should consistently be patient and gentle in your approach. Refrain from the form of lecturing all the time. Your loving and caring companionship will help a lot in understanding and cooperation. You should also help her choose some good friends that can remind her of her Islamic commitments.”
