ANSWER: Wallekum As Salaam!
I think your parents shouldn't come and stay with you as it will increase more hardships when
your own family is struggling with the sole income of your husband.
I suggest you speak to your parents and tell your father that your husband will certainly help
him start his business as well as guide him but they have to stay on their own and whenever it is possible monetary help can also be extended.
I hope this solution will work Inshallah and leave the rest to the Almighty Allah who takes
care of every one when in trouble if one is steadfast in salat, fast & zakat especially during
May the Almighty Allah have mercy on us to forgive our sins and guide us all to the true path
of Islam as per the Koran for rest of our life.

You need not explain anything to me as the Almighty Allah knows the best and everything. But only
remember that when we were children our parents first satisfies our hunger and satiates their in
case there is only one square meal.
