Husband selling drugs


There is a sister whose husband and his brothers earn the majority of their income from the sale of illegal drugs. They have children and she is very worried about the effects of haram income on the family. She wants to know how she should handle this situation.

Answer: ﺑﺴﻢ اﷲ اﻟﺮﺣﻤﻦ اﻟﺮﺣﯿﻢ In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful The wife should continuously advise her husband to leave this job and make sincere dua to Allah (SWT) to guide her husband and his brothers. In addition, she can also request someone influential in the community, e.g. an Alim, to advise him. The sin of this impermissible trade will be on the husband, hence if the husband utilizes that money for the necessities of his wife and children, e.g. he buys them food and clothes, then those items will be permissible for the wife and children to use.
