Unemployed Husband


Salam Alaikoum,

I’m a working woman who’s married to a foreigner. Due to the immigration law, my husband is not allowed to work so now he’s working as a freelancer online.
Forgive me please but from what I see, he doesn’t do his best to earn money. He spends most of his time reading Islamic books, browsing on Islamic sites, making shalat/do’a,or debating about Islam on forum. I have to admit that he is really good at ibadah, but I feel really depressed knowing that he spends most of his time on religion – while I’m the one who pay all the expense.

As a result, I get angry easily to him,especially when I feel already tired from job and I still need to deal with the household chores, etc. I know it’s not good, and I don’t want to lose respect to my husband. Please give me solution…



wa `alaykum salam,

I made Du`a for both of you. Recite hasbunAllah wa ni`ama ‘l-wakeel daily 100 times. Insha-Allah everything will improve.
