Q: I am married for 15 years with 3 kids. My husband takes care of us financially but he has been cheating on me. He drinks and stays with other women and abuses me physically and mentally. He does not want to divorce but wants me gone with kids. But otherwise he is very nice to everyone else, he helps people, donates for mosques, does charity. Does this make him a good person? What do I do? Please help me do the right thing. I have been tolerating him for the sake of my kids but i m distraugt inside.
A: Definitely it is a great act of virtue to be patient, moreover, to do things for the interest of your growing infant children, May Allah Ta`ala reward you for this.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
