Should I listen to my Husband or my Mother?
  • Question:

    After marriage, should we listen to our mother or to our husband?

    Assalamu Alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh

    Thank you for your question. May Allah bless you and your family life.

    I am not aware of the specifics in your case, however, in general you are encouraged to listen and respect both your mother and your husband.

    If there is a conflict , both you and your husband should present your views to your mother as a unit together, in a respectful and dignified manner.

    In your personal marital life with your husband, your husband has the right.

    “So, the righteous women are obedient, (and) guard (the property and honor of their husbands)” (Qur'an 4:34)

    And Allah knows best.
