Lazy Husband

Q: I got married 1 year ago, my husband is still studying but before marriage he made a lot of promises to me that he would complete his studies he has made this promise to my parents as well. But after marriage I have seen no attempt to make an effort to do anything. When I speak to him about he acts as if he is trying which only lasts one day then he is back to his old ways. He is currently working and I am expecting. His job pays very little and I have tried to explain to him that if he can finish his studies he can apply for a better job insha Allah but he refuses to let this affect him. He reads his namaaz but does not wake up for fajr unless I wake up. If I don’t he will not bother. I am feeling very bad and no good feelings and I am afraid that if this goes on I will not be able to take it. Is there any dua I can read for him to change his ways and take some responsibility?


A: Recite the following dua after your 5 daily salaah

اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّى أَسْأَلُكَ الْعَفْوَ وَالْعَافِيَةَ فِى دِينِى وَدُنْيَاىَ وَأَهْلِى وَمَالِى

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