What to do, I purchased fazail e Amal and muntakhab and suggested many times to do taleem and once we did taleem in her parents home with her parents. Daily I do taleem and take my wife and all my family members to sit in taleem. My wife listens to whatever her parents tell her whether it’s wrong or right.
A: She must respect her husband. Disobeying the husband is a major wrong.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
