Should I stay or work in the Gulf? Can I marry my wife’s sister?

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Darulifta-Deoband.com
Assalamwalaikum, I am the only son to my parents and have one sister, who is married and living seperately. There are differences between my wife and my parents because of which my wife wants me to work in gulf so that we can live together and she wants me to leave my parents at my sister’s place. BUT I want to stay with my parents and I just cannot think of living without them.. My wife just does not feel comfortable staying with my parents she feels very lonely. My wife herself recommends for my second marriage What should I do and how should I live with both of them? My second question is My parents like my wife’s sister Can I get married to her itself?


(Fatwa: 2298/1888=B/1429)

The wife has no right to demand her husband to leave his mother; the husband must not act upon his demand thought she feels lonely. If she is insistent and creates tension in family affairs for carrying out her demand then the husband can give her Talaq and once the iddah is over he can marry her sister as per the advice of mother. But, it is haram for a man to keep two sisters together in Nikah.
