Inappropriate company

Q: My husband thinks I am a salafi, just because I say “salafi” things. But I am not, I am only asking such things, so he could clarify for me. I always ask whether what i’m saying is correct or not. But he jumps to conclusions and accuses me of becoming a salafi, and believing the statements I say (which I  don’t!). I have a few salafi colleagues, who talk about things and I always come home and ask him. I admit before I was married I used to believe what they said because I didn’t know what was correct or not, but now I know, I always ask. We always end up arguing about these things, and he gets angry and makes a scene. I tell him to shut up, which I know is rude. But I don’t want his whole family to hear us arguing. What shall I do?


A: Why have those types of colleagues that could corrupt your mind and mislead you. The hadeeth strongly discourages and forbids inappropriate company. Inappropriate company thereafter is a cause of this type of unpleasant relationship.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
