Showing kindness to one’s wife and mother

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: I have a question regarding the wife and mother. There is no problem between my mom and my wife, my wife just dont want anybody to come to our house for living. My mom is very sick and I am taking care of her in my house as being her child. I did not ask my wife to take care of my mother except cooking regular food which is normal. I am having such a big problem for no reason, she is not talking to me nor talking to my parents. I am not happy with my wife.

Can you please guide me what sharia says about this case or what should I do, should I let my mom get sick or let my wife go?


A: Don’t worry about her attitude. Go on showing kindness and service to your mother with the greatest respect and love. May Allah Ta`ala give you a lot of barkat.

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