Husband sleeping separately

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: If a husband stops sleeping with his wife but the wife never wanted this, who will be questionable in the court of Allah?

Every time he does this, his wife told him that she doesnt like sleeping separately. It’s been many weeks and situation is the same.


A: It is not a sin, but showing an attitude is not the appropriate thing. Humbling oneself brings about a lot of happiness and prosperity and a good end.

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