Ill-treatment from in-laws

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: I got married on 5 feb 2017. From that day my mother and father in law are disrespecting and showing anger to me. I am a working woman. After office I do home chores and when they are sick I take care of them. But still they are not happy and always having small complaints.

On the other hand, my husband loves me alot. He makes me understand but doesnt tell his parents to cool down. We are happy together but I get angry on him sometimes. Kindly guide me as I’m sad and no peace in mind and heart.


A: Make shukr that your husband loves you. Don’t pay attention to the treatment of your in-laws. Just ignore their inappropriate behaviour. Look at their comfort.

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