        Someone can be the nicest person in the world. I may be able to treat or even respect them as my own parents. But I would never be able to love them like I love my parents.

          Treat them how you'd like your parents to be treated. If they wrong you make excuses for them and keep a clean heart. You will be closer to Allah that way.

When he draws near Me by the span of his hand, I draw near him by the length of a cubit, and when he draws near Me by the length of a cubit, I draw near him by the length of a fathom, and when he draws near Me walking I draw close to him running."

                Haha, glad it's making someone smile!

                It all depends, at the end of the day; (if they're decent people) then it can bring more stability to the marriage as they've 'been there, done that' so they can advise both people accordingly (when things take a turn for the worst). Though, sometimes they can be biased n wna just defend their son's....

                  I realize the original post was awhile back but still wanted to contribute. Check out this site for tips on living with in-laws. Might be helpful: http://southasianinlaws.com/livingwithin-laws/

                    Remember sometimes the mother in law will be set in her own ways, so dont try and change it. Always ask if help is needed, smile, be kind.. dont get upset over lil things anddd love them as your own

                      so rather than keeping it, maybe discuss it with your husband/inlaws.... and it may not even be much of a problem inshAllah....


                      or I think thats what he means... lol
                      ...but for some of us, if we talk to our husband about any inappropriate behaviour of in-laws they get so angry or just give cold shoulder you know. Like oneday suddenly I saw my elder brother-in-law taking my picture!!! Yuck! I was so disgusted! I am a non-mahram to him who doesn't even like chatting with him and then he suddenly takes my picture! Then his wife came to take my pictures and I politely said not to take any and she started shouting at me! Such an idit subhanAllah! She is one of the reasons I don't like going to my in-laws home that much. So much bitterness in her subhanAllah and I can't even respond as my husband will go against me if I ever respond to her.

                        1) your own family understand your ups and downs and moods and accept it as you accept theirs. In laws may not and may expect you to be perfectly happy all the time.

                        2) dont comprimise from the beginning, if there is something you care about, make sure you say from the beginning.
