Husband preventing the wife from visiting her father

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: I am married for the last 9 years. My mother died when I was 16. We are only two sisters and my father is all alone as I don’t have any brother. My question is that what responsibilities do I have toward my father? My husband doesn’t like me to visit my family. My father is even deprived of his grandchildren. As a daughter I really feel very pity for my father and as a wife I can’t disobey my husband. Few months back I tried to convince my husband that he is wrong on his part and is doing injustice with me and my father. He got angry and has not talked to me since last three months. He is working abroad and few days back has come to India. He still ignores me as if I don’t exist neither does he sleep with me. It hurts me a lot as I love him very much. But now it seems he has started hating me. He is also very short tempered and gets fits of anger. I told him sorry but he told me to go away. I am very disturbed and I don’t know what to do. His parents are of no help and often blame me for everything. Can you please suggest me some wazifa to melt his heart so that he starts loving me again. I need some very powerful wazifa which will work very fast because he will be in India only for a week. Please save my marriage.


A: It is your duty to visit your father. You do not need his permission to visit your father. If he is angered about this then it is his ignorance and not understanding deen. Don’t be concerned about it. May Allah Ta`ala grant him the true understanding of deen. Recite ‘Yaa Subboohu Yaa Quddoosu Yaa Ghafooru Yaa Wadoodu’ and subtly blow one him when talking to him.

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