  • I think just showing an interest in educating yourself about Islam would make your husband extremely happy. I am not trying to convert you - just to understand him better. I think it would show him a good deal of respect, which is very important to muslims.

    You could either read a book about Islam - make sure it was written by a muslim though, because non-muslims tend to write books of criticism, and not explanation.

    Or there are classes at local mosques on Islam. I studied Islam every Saturday for a year at the mosque where I lived. It was very informative. The class what about theology, an intellectual study of Islam. I found it very interesting.

  • greetings


     I am sorry for the hard times you are going through with your husband. but I'm afraid the answer is a bit more complicated than you might think. NO one can answer you unless you give us some more information. like is he Muslim or Nation of Islam ? what is his cultural background ( very important, is he Arab from the middle east? is he African? Pakistani or Bangla?..etc. ....... ( continued bellow)

  • ...( continued)....


    how devout a Muslim is he? but most importantly, maybe you should sit him down calmly and discuss the situation openly with him . as a couple. see what his expectations were, or are. what has changed. Men usually respond more to calm conversation than emotional ones.


     sorry if I was not of much help. please feel free to contact me, or visit our group anytime. Thank you Apr1I for the nice recommendation. you are so sweet.


    best wishes, Salaam ( peace)
