Being A Good Muslim Wife

Recommended Posts

I don't know how many read of my ordeal with my husband on "Urgent, Please help looking for my husband" that I began on May 22. He had left me to go to Dearborn because I was a Christian at that time, but I reverted while he was gone. Allah reunited us on July 20. But it seems he has changed. He doesn't seem interested in getting a job & our bills are piling up. With only me working, it still isn't enough to cover our basic bills & food expenses. Everytime I try to talk to him, he tells me that he knows he needs to get a job, but when he goes to "look" for one, he maybe goes to 2-3 places, then spends the rest of the day doing who knows what! We only have one vehicle, so I have him take me to work & then he goes into town to "look" for work. On the days he stays home, he doesn't do much around the house & seems to always have excuses for not doing anything. I love him very much & I'm very happy that Allah reunited us, but I don't know exactly what to do. He goes into town on Fridays to go to Friday prayers at a Sunni mosque, (located in a conference room in a hotel). He talks to them some, & talks to a couple of men from Dearborn, but I don't think he is telling them the whole truth. I reminded him that the Quran states he is supposed to take care of his family, (he & I, we have no children at home), but it didn't seem to make a difference. He plays on the Xbox 360 his video games or watches tv during the day. I come in from work to dirty dishes & house. I ask him to do specific things, but he seems to "forget". He tells me to "relax, everything will be ok & not to get so stressed", but how can I not when the house insurance was cancelled for non-payment, we are 2 payments behind on our vehicle, a payment behind on the house & taxes on the house are delinquent. I am applying for another job that pays more money than the prison I work for, but that's no guarantee. He went to 3 places to apply for jobs today, then "got a headache", spent the rest of the day at the park & who knows where. I told him tonight after we got home that we couldn't go another month without a job. He just keeps telling me that no house or vehicle is worth me worrying myself sick over & if we lose them it will be ok. How can being homeless or without transportation to work ok? We live in a small town & I have to drive 72 miles round trip 5 days a week to work. I own my house & the payments on it are less than we could move to the nearest city & pay rent. I need help & prayers to know what to do about my husband. I divorced a man that was physically & emotionally abusive & didn't want to work. My husband now is a wonderfully compassionate man & has good qualities, but he seems to be unwilling to work. I talked with his mom & told her I was frustrated at him & why & her response was that he gets like that sometimes. I don't think this is what Allah is wanting for either of us. Please help........

^ And is he a Pisces?

He has a very relaxed attitude toward life, which is good in a sense...but he's letting his responsibilities go and he knows it. It sincerely seems like he just doesn't care. This has nothing to do with you being a "bad wife": you are doing EVERYTHING you can to keep your life together. I've been keeping up with your posts, starting from when he first left and it just seems like that his MO in life. If things get tough, meh, it will work out somehow. He's completely neglecting the fact that you need to do whatever you can and Allah will do the rest, not the other way around.

I can see you love him but my advice is to give him an ultimatum and stick by it. Either he starts pulling his own weight and doing what needs to be done or you leave. There is really no simpler answer than that. Things are going to keep going down this path if nothing changes and I think you know that this will destroy you if you don't act. You're reaching out for help from us, you're at your wits end. You know something needs to change and this is my opinion.

Act. You are strong, you've shown that.

Dear Sister,

I am highly against divorce and separation. But in this case your husband is taking advantage of you. You need to sit down and think about this. Do you really need him in your life? He is making you miserable. He is a man and he should start acting like one. If he is somehow unable to do that, you will have to kick him out for a while and let him get a taste of the real world. I mean come on. Xbox 360 all day long??? :realangery:

You really need to do something about it.

Kick him out, you don't need to take care of someone who doesn't care/strive to take care of you in return as well...

Start with hiding the Xbox and stop giving him an allowance for starters... Then take a harsher step at a time if things still don't change...

May Allah have mercy on your future hubby

She's right in what she said.

Watch these lectures with him, they cover a bit of the rights of a husband and the rights of the wife

Here is sheikh Jehad's:

It's lectures 12,13, and 14

If u cannot get him to fulfill your rights, talk to a shiekh and probably seek divorce... he is being unjust to you!

Well, from the little I know about astrological signs, Earth and Water are supposed to be highly compatible and such matches are recommended by those who have faith in such things.

Taurus is a bull (earth) and Cancer is a crab (water). I also asked if he was Pisces (water) because in my experience Pisces/Taurus are really incompatable signs...that is, if the people actually act like how their sign states. Not everyone does.

EDIT: Also, I'm a pisces so I can see some of my own "meh, it'll work out" qualities in him although he takes it to a whole new extreme.

    • The faces tell the truth, right have enjoyed and peaceful smile on their faces while those on the left have shaky faces with the hands on the light that certainly it is not the light of peace or  truth.
    • Thanks for your response just in a logical manner this means if your supposition is true that you are saying your prayers all of the prayers making the face towards black clothed Kaaba and these will all be  makrooh then? No my brother this supposition is not true.I do not consider it makrooh in any manner. wasalam
    • 30- I heard God’s Prophet (MGB) say, ‘My nation will be resurrected and become united on the Resurrection Day with five flags. The first flag which will come will be the flag of Muawiyah who is the Pharaoh of my nation. The second flag will be that of Amr ibn al-A'as who is the Sameri of the nation. The third flag will be that of Abu Musa Ash’ari who is like the Catholic Archbishop (Al-Jaseliq) of this nation. The fourth flag will be that of Abil A’oar al-Salmy. Yours will be the fifth flag under which all the believers will be gathered while you are their Leader. Then the Blessed the Sublime will tell those four groups: ‘Turn back and seek brightness.’ Then a wall will be erected in front of them which has a door. In it there is mercy who are my friends and followers. Then those who fought me along with the Kharajites , those who broke their pledge and the people misled from the straight path will knock at that door - that is the door of mercy being my followers. They will cry out, ‘Were we not we with you?’ They will reply, ‘Yes, you were. However, you deceived yourselves, you were hindered, you doubted and worldly aspirations deceived you until God's order (i.e. death) arrived and pride (i.e. Satan) deceived you. Today nothing will be accepted of you as recompense.’ Nothing will be accepted of those who rejected faith, either. Your place shall be in the Fire. It will be the place you shall turn to. What a bad destiny that is! Then my nation and my followers will come to drink and they get satiated from Muhammad's (MGB) Heavenly Pool . A cane will be in my hand made of boxthorn wood with which I drive God's enemies away just as people push others’ camels away from drinking water. 31- Indeed I heard God’s Prophet (MGB) say, “Were it not from the fear of what the Boasters might say about you similar to what the Christians say about Jesus -the son of Mary (MGB), I would have expressed one of your virtues and then anyone who passed by you would take a piece of the dirt from under your feet for healing.” 32- Indeed I heard God’s Prophet (MGB) say, “The Blessed the Sublime God helped me regarding fear of enemies. I asked God to help you in the same way in this regard.” 33- God’s Prophet (MGB) put his head to my ear and taught me whatever has been and whatever there will be up until the Resurrection Day. The Honorable the Exalted God has let me hear this from His Prophet’s (MGB) tongue. 34- When the Christians challenged the Prophet (MGB), the Honorable the Exalted God revealed the following in this regard, ‘If anyone disputes in this matter with thee, now after (full) knowledge Hath come to thee, say: "Come! let us gather together,- our sons and your sons, our women and your women, ourselves and yourselves: Then let us earnestly pray, and invoke the curse of Allah on those who lie!’[3:61] Here ‘ourselves’ referred to me as self of God’s Prophet (MGB) , ‘our women’ referred to Fatimah (MGB), ‘our sons’ referred to Al-Hassan (MGB) and Al-Hussein (MGB). Then the Christians felt sorry and asked God’s Prophet (MGB) to forgive them and he (MGB) forgave them. I swear by Him who revealed the Torah to Moses (MGB), and the Quran to  Muhammad (MGB) that they would have all been transmuted into monkeys and pigs, if they had engaged in invocation with us.” (To be continued.........)
