I stopped speaking to my older brother for a period of years, and that was [only] to avoid problems – so what is the ruling regarding that? And is what I did correct?
We have an elderly grandfather who is particularly ill mannered. And we fear Allaah if we were to leave him to sit by himself, and yet if we sit with him, he is very obscene in his speech – something which is not befitting of someone of his age!
With my husband’s consent, I want to visit my parents, brothers and sisters who all live in Yemen, so if I find a mahram then this simplifies matters. So am I considered to be squandering my husband’s money by taking these visits every year?
I am experiencing a problem with my wife. Two years after my father passed away, I got married, and [after his death], it was I who had assumed the responsibility for my mother and infant brothers – and after Allaah (‘Azza wa Jall) I have been the only provider for them.
I live [together] with my father, my mother, my wife and my brothers in one house, and sometimes I bring something specifically for my wife to eat – without my parents knowing [about it]. And privately together, my wife and I eat; so what is the ruling regarding that?
