Who should I move closer to?


Salam Shaykh Hisham Kabbani,

I am married to my husband with one kid and I am planning to buy a house soon. I am staying with my in-laws at the moment. The thing is, who shold I buy my house close to? My in-laws or my parents? Or to buy near my husband’s work place? Whichever that is best for my family’s ibadah & maintaining the relationship as a whole. Thank you Shaykh.



`Alaykum as-Salam,
This is an excellent question and may Allah Most High justify your intention and reward you. Your responsibility is to your husband, while his responsibility is to you, to his parents, and to his work. The best would be a place equidistant to your in-laws and your husband’s workplace, as that would bring him more support and peace of mind in meeting all of his responsibilities.
