Issues with Sister-in-law

CategoriesWomen's Issues [188]

Assalmulkum, Please help me i am in distress, I am going to my brother-in-laws house to stay, but my sister-in-law (His wife) likes to show off and impress my Husband and winds him up about so many things.

Please give me some Amal that will get him to stop talking to this Non Mahram, and have no friendship with her and give him Hidayat.

In the name of Allah, the most Beneficent, the most Merciful.

Answer

The Prophet of Allah Sallallahu Alahi Wasalam has said:

“Beware of going near (non mahram) women.” A person enquired “What about in laws?” The Prophet of Allah Sallallahu Alahi Wasalam replied, “The in laws are death.” (Mishkaat p.268)

The Prophet of Allah Sallallahu Alahi Wasalam has resembled the in laws to death, meaning extra care should be taken in regards to hijab and interaction as there is a greater risk of fitnah.

In regards to your question, it might be a good idea to try and talk to your sister in law and explain to her what she is doing is totally against the teachings of Islam. Or you can talk to your husband and tell him to refrain from going to his brother’s house until the sister in law fully observes the hijab.

In the meantime you can advise your husband to read one of the following duas;

1.      YA RABBIN NABI MUHAMMAD SALLALLAHU ALAHI WASALAM IGFIR LI ZANBI WAZHAB GHAZAL QALBI WA AJIRNI MIN MAZALATIL FITNATI MAA AHYAYTANI.”  (Musnad Ahmed)

2.      RABANA LA TAJALNA FITNATAL LIL QAWMIZ ZALEMEEN

(Surah Yunus v.85)

Only Allah Knows Best
