Wife not practising Islam

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: I want to ask if a man embraced Islam for almost 13 years and his wife also and children embraced but his wife and children don’t want to perform salah and other obligations of a Islam. His childrena ages are 20 years and above. What should he do? Is it right to divorce her?


A: If she is not willing to practise Islam and you are afraid that it may affect your life or the life of the children then it is better to separate her.

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