Marital problems

Q: A sister is saying that her husband is not coming close to her at nights and that whenever she ask him he refuses. He wasn’t like this before. He doesn’t show any interest in her. She has two babies. It’s been more then many months now. She says that she starts to feel that its something in her that maybe is unattractive. She said she feel shes is not married. She makes food and takes care of her children and also cleans the house. Her husband is only on the phone, don’t like her to even hug him, says stay away. She misses her days back when they were newly married. He don’t even like to sit and talk to her.


A: Start off the following program at home:

1. Recite some portion of the Qur’aan.

2. Conduct ta`leem of Fazaa’il-e-Sadaqaat, Fazaa’il-e-A’maal and Bahishti Zewar for approximately 15 minutes in the mornings and evenings.

3. Do zikr of the kalimah, Durood Shareef and istighfaar.

4. Make du`aa at the end of each session, begging Allah Ta`ala for His special help, mercy and forgiveness for oneself and the rest of the ummah.

Make du`aa for him and don’t provoke him.

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