Problems with the in-laws

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: My in laws, especially mother in law tends to fight with me. She always blames me for her sons actions. We both working people, I work shifts and he works office hours, we always visit them on the weekend and for occasions in the week we are present and Thursday nights. If he works or I’m working then we can’t go unfortunately, now she doesn’t want to understand that if he is working, she will say that he is telling lies. She then sends me messages that it’s because of me that his acting this way, all his sisters don’t work, only his brother works but he works flexi hours, I don’t know what to do, I really love my husband but feel I don’t want to be part of this family, I can never boast about my husband to her because she becomes angry and jealous. Please advise as I’m suffering from depression due to constantly being oppressed by his family.


A: The best for a woman is to stay within the home. Coming out of the home does not come without problems.

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