Staying with a Husband Who Doesn’t Pray: Allowed?

Staying with a Husband Who Doesn’t Pray


What is the ruling of staying with a husband who does not pray (make salah)?


In the name of Allah, we praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright.

This is a very frequent occurrence today, but as long as a person does not deny the obligation prayer (salah), he will remain a Muslim. While he is still a Muslim, caring and providing for his wife and family, it is permissible for the wife to remain with him. The wife should encourage him to do righteous deeds and forbid him from evil. 

In addition, a wife should be careful not to raise her voice at her husband, or to nag him so much that he begins to dread coming home to her. Instead, a wife should make the home a relaxing place for the husband, and to make sure that she pray all prayers on time. Also, it is worthy to mention that a wife should keep making du`aa’ (supplication) for husband. Moreover, a wife can request her husband to take her for `umrah, if he ever offers to take her on a vacation.
