My Husband Does Not Want Me to Wear Hijab

19 July, 2022
Q I would like some advice, I have been married for 7 years and I am a revert. My husband is Catholic. I have changed a lot since reverting and my husband doesn’t like it. He says I pray too much, I’m too picky about foods I can eat, I don’t want to do things I used to do and he also doesn’t like it when I wear hijab. He said he prefers me without it. I notice he treats me different when I wear it like I’m ugly when I wear it. What should I do?


Do you face criticism from your spouse or family members when you are trying to practice Islam as a convert?

What can you do if you receive negative comments about your hijab, for example?

One of the best solutions is to educate your husband about the reasons behind the commandments and prohibitions. 

Support your claims with research-based evidence. Use scientific sources while referring to the wisdom of Allah behind these rules.
