Arranged Marriage: I Wanted Someone Who Leads Me to Jannah

21 February, 2024
Q Assalamu alaikum

My issue is with my wife, she doesn’t care about her prayers. She shouts at me when I wake her up for Fajr. Before marriage she told me that she is religious. It was an arranged marriage. She discouraged me from praying while we were traveling. The prayers are never on her schedule, she does it only when everything is perfect.

I am really sad, I ever prayed to gift me a wife who would help me on the way to God. I feel helpless and sad.

In fact, she loves me. But I need a spouse who will lead me to Jannah. This is very hard for me. I can’t divorce her due to society customs and I am not sure I will get another girl as I am financially poor and not handsome. Please pray for me.


Some people may not recognize the importance of prayer and the dangers of not praying regularly.

What can you do to have a wife who leads you to Jannah? Be the one who shows her the way to Allah!

It matters how you do that, as, probably, the more you insist, the more she will resist. 

Take care of not being harsh or demanding when you remind her of the value of prayer.

Invite her, share your prayers and daily worship at home. Go to the masjid and Islamic gatherings together.
