Assalam-O-Alikum, I have been married for 9 years now. We fight over smallest issue and then the arguement goes very long. I don’t want to fight with him anymore as it is making me feel ill and worthless. I am depressed. He don’t respect my parents since very long time. He wants me to give respect to his family. Is it fair for him to do that and asking me for respect for his side of family. I thought marriage is done in 2 way relationship not one. Kindly please help me and tell me what should I do. I don’t have any brother. I am the only child of my parents. After marriage what are the rights of daughter to their parents. Please I need your help tell me what duaa to read so I can live with him until Allah has given me life to live.
wa `alaykum salam,
It is two-way but sometimes Shaytan interferes so try to be patient even if you are in the right, do not argue but turn to Allah Most High and He will bring back blessing in your marriage. Prophet upon him peace said to women: your husbands are your paradise or your hell; and he said to men: your parents are your paradise or your hell. So each knows his or her duty. Recite each morning Ya Halim 100 times daily for love and harmony in your home.
