Ask The Imam Question and Answer

676 I am happily married Muslim female. My husband is a true gem with the grace of Allah (S.W.T) but my parents often make all important decisions for me and him. He treats them like his parents but sometime I can see he’s not happy about this.

Should I listen to my parents or my husband bearing in mind its things like if we go away for holiday how long it should be, if we can visit family friends or not etc..?
For a Muslim man, the being(s) he should show most obedient to is his parents. For the wife, the being she should show the most obedient to is the husband. When this is observed, then the whole society experiences peace and balance.

The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) extensively explained the signs of the Day of Judgement. One of these signs was that the man will obey his wife devoutly to the exclusion of his mother and the man will love his friends dearly but will ignore his father.

Each and every Muslim has a responsibility to ensure they do not act in such a way.
