The way the wife should interact with a husband whos an open sinner

 

Question: Im a muslim woman who is a mother, who finds it very difficult to explain and reason with my husband about whats a true muslim.

He doesn’t pray nor fast and is an open sinner, how do I deal with this situation?

Answer: If he’s not being negligent in providing a home and money for living and he doesn’t force you to leave that which is obligatory such as prayer or fasting in the month of Ramadan nor has he done something which is forbidden such as removing the hijab in front of strange men, then be patient with him and give him good advice with wisdom and don’t say such things which may cause him to remain upon the state he’s in.

What’s very important is to make sure you properly focus on upbringing your children with a good upbringing by sitting with them and speaking with them continuously and earn their trust. May Allah help you with this responsibility.
