Q: Please advise me. My husband and I are having many marital problems for the past +- 1 & 1/2 years. It’s mainly because of my husband’s phone. I spoke to him on many occasions but he doesn’t want to change. He doesn’t show love to me as well. At the moment we are not on talking terms. We only speak what is necessary. The hadith that mentions something to the effect, that the angels curse a woman whose husband is displeased with her and her ibaadah is not accepted, will I fall under this hadith? I am very worried, if my ibaadah is not accepted then how will my duas,tilaawat etc benefit me? Can Mufti Saheb please advise me.
A: You are advising him towards righteousness and purity. Hence, you will be blessed by the malaaikah and Allah Ta`ala. May Allah Ta`ala grant you happiness in both worlds. Don’t ever be confused. Remain firm on the path of modesty and righteousness.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
