How Can I Resolve a Religious Argument With My Wife?

Question: How can I resolve a religious argument with my wife, when she does not trust material from Seeker’s Guidance? 


Walaikum assalam, I hope you’re doing well, insha’Allah. My advice would be not to argue with her. People—especially those close to us—are convinced by good character (husn al-khuluq) rather than discussion, debate, or—worse—argument. The Beloved Messenger of Allah (peace & blessings be upon him & his folk) did not argue. He inspired by his noble example, and people listened to his teaching because he lived and exemplified their beauty and excellence.
