Marital problem

Q: My husband refuses to find a job and has not been working for the last 2 years. He spends his days sleeping and watching TV. He also has a tendency to lie about everything and incurs debts behind my back. Is this a valid reason for talaaq?


A: We suggest that this case be referred to a pious, senior, qualified aalim who deals with these types of cases, preferably an aalim who knows your husband and who will be able to explain to him and guide him in fulfilling his marital responsibilities and obligations.

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