Woman living on her own

Q: Please advise, I am a 24 year old female and currently live with my two elder brothers. However over the years our home has made me constantly miserable and unhappy due to fighting and brothers not getting along. I am considering moving out on my own, however I am worried about breaking family ties, as I am the only common factor that aids in the two brothers making up after a fight (which normally lasts a few months at a time). Please advise what you think would be best?


A: A woman should never think of living on her own. The disasters and problems she can expose herself to when living alone outweigh the problems that you are going trough presently.

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