To whom should he give preference, his mother or his wife?
Dear Brothers & Sisters,As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
A man has a wife and a mother. Should he give preference to his wife over his mother in spending, other necessities and clothing, and is there any sin involved if he does that?
(There may be some grammatical and spelling errors in the above statement. The forum does not change anything from questions, comments and statements received from our readers for circulation in confidentiality.)

Praise be to Allaah.
There is no sin involved in that, if his mother is one of those whom he is obliged to support and he meets her needs. But it is better for him to make his mother happy and to give her preference. If he has to give preference to his wife, he should hide that from his mother. And Allaah knows best.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
