Q: I have asked you about my personal problem. Now tell me what should we do. We are five sisters. Our father is a poor man. My elder sister’s husband did a second marriage and after that at least 3 year he didn’t go to my sister. She has three children in 15 years of marriage. My second elder sister is married for 10 years and her husband is not able to fulfil a husbands duties as well as financial needs. My third elder sister’s husband is very well off but after 7 years of marriage he is also not able to fulfil her rights. My marriage is in it’s third year but my husband’s parents don’t let me live with him for my whole life permanently nor does he himself want to take me with him. However, he can afford it easily abroad. He just came for 6 month in these 3 years. My younger sister is overage and my parents still didn’t find her a soul mate. Please you tell me what should we all sister do. We are human, have emotions, can’t take divorce. What has Allah revealed for such conditions? Should we just make sabar?
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
