Ask an Alim

How should I convince my Husband to perform his religious duties.


I am 22, I have been married for 5 years. My husband doesn’t pray, fast or think too much about Islam.
I feel lonely alot of the time because he doesn’t take time out for me. I listen to everything he tells me to do, yet he doesn’t listen when I kindly ask him to at least pray Jummah.
I am trying to be patient and steadfast but it’s very hard… he doesn’t listen to me. I wanted to ask what I should do in this situation.


Waalykum salam
Thank you for your Question

I will strongly suggest that you speak to him of the importance of the matter. Explain how this will effect your children and that you’re looking into raising great Muslim children.

Alternatively, you can ask an elderly or some other person who he will listen to. He maybe needing to seek advice from other than you.

I will also humbly suggest you ask him to speak to the Alim of the community and remove all his doubts or queries if he has any. Or Atleast reason out his indifference towards religion

Hopefully alll goes well and you’re able to enjoy your life to its fullest InshaAllah
