I work hard to support my wife and 3
kids and I spend all the money I earn
on them. My wife also works but
refuses to help me with life expenses
that I can't afford. She wants me to find
a second job to earn more money.
Unfortunately, due to the fact that I
can't find a proper job and to the fact
that her working hours would not let
either one of us stay with the little kids,
I can't work a second job. What is the
Fatwa in that regard?


All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord
of the Worlds. I testify that there is
none worthy of worship except Allah,
and that Muhammad is His slave
and Messenger.
Indeed, you did well by endeavouring to
earn your income to support your
family and this is one of the acts by
which one gets closer to Allah.
As a husband, you are obliged to spend
on your wife and children. If you do so,
you fulfil your obligation and you are
not obliged to do anything more than

As regards the money of your wife, it is
her property and she is not obliged to
help you in spending on the household.
However, if she does so by her own
will, then this is good as it is a reason
for strengthening the affection between
both of you.

If you wish to take a second job, and
one of you has to be with the children
at home, then you may prevent your
wife from going to work and order her
to stay with the children at home if she
had not conditioned on you before the
marriage to allow her to work.

Allah Knows best.
