(Fatwa: 323/304/N=5/1438)



If the husband insists for prayer, sawm, Shariah purdah etc in good way but the wife does not listen to him and the husband is unhappy by her habits and activities, then only the wife shall be sinful and she shall be liable for punishment and the husband will not be sinful and he also would not get any punishment if his wife shows negligence towards Shariah obligations. However, it is the responsibility of the husband to change his wife in good way and with wisdom. He should not show any negligence in reforming her. It is very much possible that the sincere effort of the husband works and the wife starts following the right path.
