    dont want to live with inlaw, what does islam say

    salamoalikom

    a sister who is married lives now with her husband, soon her mother in law will move with them, and the sister doesnt want. she is wondering what islam say about this. could she say to her husband that she doesnt want? could she demand it? her mother in law is married but separeted, and her husband is married with another one too.

    is there any particular reason she is against her mother inlaw moving in?

    surely the sister will get alot of reward from Allah swt for hidmaath done to the husbands mother...his mother is js liek her own mother, y wudd't she want to have her mother live with her?..it seems like her mother inlaw is in a situation herself and could do with sum help and assistance.
    *Alhamdulillah*

      well, she say that she dont like her because of her strict attitude, she say she treated her like her own mother, but she was so negative to her, she thinks she hates her. she say that she have a negativ attitude, and agressive and that is why her husband separeted with her, she loves her kids she say, but she hates her. like she is an enemy. her mother in law makes her so insecure she say, her mother in law say that she is so decieved, she thought the sister would b like this and this but ur not. her mother in law wants to rule on her and everything in the house, the kitchen etc. she dont let her close the door in her room, and she wants to decide her routines etc.

          tbh i think its as much up to the wife as it is up to the husband. They should come up with an answer together.

          Do you think that by having the mother stay with them, it will cause a strain on their marriage?

                she say that she doesnt know, but maybe it could. because she say that she could loose her control, her husband want her to tolerate, but she cant tolerate too much and could loose control

                    I'm confused by 'depends what madhab she follows'?

                      Salaam sis, this is a difficult and touchy situation. Mothers have a lot of rights over their children and a wife should treat her mother in law with the greatest of respect. Yet, I can also imagine that this young woman would feel cramped and stressed with the mother in law living with them. She does have the right to have her own home, free from the encumberances of any in laws.

                      Though the son is responsible to provide for his mother, there is nothing in Islam that insists that she must live with him and his wife. He can provide her a separate apartment elsewhere. He should protect both of them from the strain of having to live together. He could possibly provide for her to share housing with another single sister, or another relative. Maybe he can build an add on to the house, so they don't have to share common spaces.

                      She should speak with her husband and tell him of her discomfort and ask him for them to consider other alternatives other than, them living together.

                        This may help...

                        You should understand that differences are human nature; human beings are not all the same in terms of attitude, religious commitment, reasoning and behaviour. You should also pay attention to the fact that when a person grows older, their reasoning diminishes and they become childlike in many ways. You should also remember that you are dealing with your husband’s mother, and usually mothers-in-law feel as jealous of their sons’ wives as they would of a co-wife.

                        If you pay attention to all of the above, then your problems will begin to seem insignificant and your worry will be dispelled. What you are suffering from is something that many women suffer from, and it needs two important things: patience and wisdom.

                        So bear with patience whatever you see and hear from your husband’s family, and be wise in your dealings with them, especially with your husband’s mother, for by means of your wisdom you will be able to avoid many problems and you will earn their approval or at least put a stop to their ill will towards you; and you will also win your husband’s heart and please him.

                        Wisdom in your dealings with your husband’s mother means that you must speak nicely to her, praise her, pray for her, respond to her requests and be more concerned about her than she is herself, if she takes medicine, for example, or she has an appointment to visit a doctor. Gifts also play a major role in softening her heart and changing the way she deals with you.

                        But it should also be noted that you are not obliged to serve her or take care of her in the sense of it being an Islamic obligation. What you are doing is something that is mustahabb and is liked in Islam, and it is also kindness towards your husband. Perhaps if she realizes that you are doing something that is not obligatory upon you in sharee’ah, and your husband realizes that also, this will elevate your status in their eyes.

                        Secondly:


                        You have every right to have a separate house in which you live with your husband and children, and you have the right to privacy, if your husband wants you to live with his family, and he will not be disobeying his mother if he allows you that. The wise and intelligent man weighs things against the standards of sharee’ah, and gives each person who is entitled to rights his or her due, and he does not take away from one in order to give to another.

                        But despite that we know how difficult it is to live separately in many cases, especially in current circumstances when finding suitable accommodation, especially in the big cities, is very difficult to achieve. In this case the man must look at his circumstances in general with an open mind, so that he will not make things difficult for himself or for the people around him. Allaah has decreed proficiency in all things.

                        Your husband has to understand the reality of your situation with his mother, because this is causing you to be edgy, which is affecting your children. It may also be affecting your husband. Hence he should hasten to solve the problems in his household, and he should accept frank discussion with you in all matters. He has to bear the responsibility that Islam has enjoined on him, and he has to honour his family, which also includes advising them and reminding them if they do something that is contrary to sharee’ah. He is also responsible for treating his wife kindly and he is responsible for raising his children. He is in great need of someone who can discuss these matters frankly with him and help him, and you are the main support who can help him in all these matters.

                        We ask Allaah to guide you and set your affairs straight, and to reconcile between you, and to make you a happy family in this world and in the Hereafter.

                        And Allaah knows best.
                        Sheikh Muhammad Salih al-Munajjid

                          Nice one. Mashallah. May Allah swt increase u in knowledge.

                          I am not married and sometimes i think about these stuff. My parents raised me, educated me Bi'idnillah, and there is no way i would leave them alone without taking care of them. I am on a process of marrying a sister Inshallah, and i told her this as one of the first thing that i wont leave my parents, and she would stay here just like she is living with her own parents and do good to the parents. Although i understand that she had her own rights. so do i.

                          The sister mentioned one condition to me, which is after marriage Inshallah, i can not marry a second wife in her presence. And for some madhab, it is ok as i learned about it. Nevertheless it didnt make sense to me why she wants me to be obligated to such condition. Although i think i would not marry a second wife may be becuz in this time i can not provide for two fairly, or law would not allow or whatever, but putting such condition would be against the permission of Allah swt, where He swt permitted His slave, and someone would put a condition on it. But after give it a thought and read about different opinions and madhab, i was ok let me make my condition clear to her. She would have to stay with me and my family. How fair is that?

                              Well, if some sisters dont want to live with in-laws then, they should not get married.

                              We men can do just fine without women. :D
