Husband refusing to perform Salaah

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: I have been married for a year and a half now. The problem is my husband refuses to pray. He used to pray all his five prayers at the beginning, but I don’t know what happened. I have tried everything to convince him to pray, but he just wouldn’t. I make dua for him everyday, and I don’t want to lose hope. We have a son now, and I want him to be a good example for my son. Please advise.


A: Commence with the following program at home:

(1) Ta`leem of Fazaa’il-e-A`maal, Fazaa’il-e-Sadaqaat and Bahishti Zewar.

(2) Recitation of a portion of the Qur’aan Shareef and some zikr.

(3) Collective du`aa with the family at the end of each session.

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