Islam/How to convince family to stop living in sin


Dear Imam,
I am a Muslim woman who is happily married and remained pure until the day of marriage...unlike my 3 brothers and sister who all live with their partners but not married to them. My divorced mother also had a relationship with someone without marriage. I know it's wrong and they want to visit my children and me but  my husband isn't comfortable about them especially my sister, he refuses for her partner to visit. How do I tell them? How can I use the Quran to guide me? It is bringing on much stress because I do want a relationship wih them but I don't know what to do:(

He has no right to stop them and you having a relationship and visiting each other- the Prophet taught us not to judge  people and he himself orderd his wife Umm Habiba to have her mother, the wife of Abu Jahl, visit their home and have a relationship with her daughter.

You are not responsbile for them

Being an Educator of Islamic Studies and Interfaith discussions for the past 25 years and having authored seventeen books and numerous articles on Islam - I think I can answer questions on Islam and other religions and issues of the Hanafi jurisprudence as well as general questions on Quran and Sharia. Love, sex and marital problems are some such topics! This is an independent volunteering service and not under any organizational banner that I may be affiliated with. My book- Intimacy and the Sacred talks about Sex and Muslims.


I have helped thousands of people who are troubled both in life experiences and lack of proper Islamic knowledge.
