In this episode, Ustadha Raidah addresses an all-too-common problem; a wife whose husband does not help with the household chores or taking care of the children, leaving her exhausted and hopeless, to the point that she is considering divorce.
Ustadha Raidah points out the importance of both parents being present in their children’s lives. Not only does it teach them what good relationships look like, but also the parents are able to get support from each other through the ups and downs of life.
Since it’s difficult to change her husband’s mindset, she encourages the mother to practice self-care, and consider finding a Muslim life coach, who may be able to help her with communication and coping skills. She emphasizes that taking time out to recharge is important, especially when not getting support from others. Finally, she encourages the mother to pray the Prayer of Guidance, and look for signs of how to proceed in the marriage.
