Wife’s misbehaviour



I hope this message finds you in good health. I need to ask something which is keeping me in dilemma. My wife misbehaved with my mother to the extreme where she even abused her and hurt my mother physically a bit. So I’m seeking guidance in this matter whether to be with her or leave her.


Salaamun alaykum.
Thank you for your question.
One thing to keep in mind is that no one is perfect and we always keep making mistakes. The main thing is we have to learn from our mistakes and try and not to repeat them. We make so many mistakes and commit so many sins and Allah tells us to turn to Him and ask for forgiveness and He will forgive us.
If we love someone and they make mistakes, we should explain them ina nice way and help them change for the better instead of leaving them alone.
And after marriage is where couples learn, make mistakes and grow. We should help one another to correct each others mistakes and it wouldnt be wise to leave your spouse because of one mistake even though i agree, what she did was absolutely wrong but by talking and explaining her mistake to her politely, she might realise what she did and change for the better inshaAllah.
