    Assalaamu’alaikum,

    I’m a mum of 2 beautiful children and soon to go back to work after my youngest. I try my best to look after my kids and my husband but often this seems inadequate. Obviously this makes me feel upset and small – asking for help from my husband who alhamdulillah tries his best to help but he says that he does too much and like I’m burdening him. He’s quite busy outside the house and I try to accomodate this but I feel angry at times… angry that he blames me for having to give up some extra work when it was obvious he was taking on too much… angry that my tiredness and efforts are barely recognised and I feel taken for granted. I’m looking forward to going back to work as I feel more appreciated there than I do at home and I feel sad about this. And I feel unable to be the ‘better person’ for my family – I have no energy left… no motivation…

    I dont know how much of this is of my own making – my thoughts dictating this self pity which I hate. I lost my mother when I was 5yrs old and always fear I never had a good role model as a muslim wife and mother and I think this dents my confidence a lot. I feel I am my own obstacle – or I’m letting others dictate how I feel about myself… I dont know…

    Jzk for your advice

      As salamualaikum dear sister,
      Thank you for your message. I hear you saying that you feel that your parents’ decisions have negatively affected your personal growth and progress in life. You are wondering how you can serve Islam with your education if your parents do not want you to get a job. These are important issues and I would need more information from you. For example, what is the reason that your parents are not allowing you to work in a job? What exactly do you dislike about attending a smaller college? I will also send you an email. If you do not receive an email, please email me at howtobeahappymuslim@outlook.com.

    Assalam Alaykum, my fiance is having a very close male friend with whom she is very much emotionally attached. He has helped her through difficult times, and I dont doubt about her relationship with him. Now, whenever in our discussion, she mentions about him, I get a very insecure feeling inside me. I also have gone through very hard times and never seeked the help of a female friend for emotional support. I kept all my emotions inside me because I felt it was the right of my wife to have the key to all my emotional treasures. i too want to get married to a girl for whom I am the best and not second best. I want to remove the nail from the heel of my shoe rather than having extra layer of socks so not to feel the pain of insecurity and jealousy..

      Walaikum as Salam brother, your feeling is totally normal and understandable. In my opinion, your fiancé should not have friendships with any males. This goes against the teachings of Islam. I am sorry to say this but unless she leaves her male friendship this is going to be a major problem in your marriage
