Religion used as an excuse for laziness

Question:

Salaam,

May you please advise how I can help an ignorant soul to understand that sitting at home and stating Allah will provide is not what Islam is about? How can I help a father who has no sense, has a ton of aggression and oppressive attitude, and lack of care and insight for his children and wife? My mom is suffering…she is getting ill-all due to my fathers lack of care and severe laziness. Never seeing the betterment for the family as a whole, but he only is worried about his own comfort and what he wants to do. My mother slowly deteriorating-her hair and teeth are falling out and due to the stress of my fathers laziness and lack of care for the family, she is has panic attacks which when I see, I become deeply enraged.

Answer:

Audhu billahi min ash-shaytan ir-rajim
Bismi-llāhi r-raḥmāni r-raḥīm:

Wa `alaykumu s-salāmu wa rahmatu l-lāhi wa barakātuh,
It was narrated from Ibn `Abbâs that the Prophet said: “The best of you is the one who is best to his wife, and I am the best of you to my wives.”

Insh Allah, Mawlana Shaykh Hisham Kabbani is praying for your family, you may follow his advice regarding the same problem here.

And Allah knows best.
