Question

All praise is due to Allaah, I performed Hajj this year. Having returned, a problem occurred between me and my husband, because of which I am living in grief and worry. I thought that Allaah did not accept my Hajj; otherwise, He would not have afflicted me with that trial. I hear that a sign of the accepted Hajj is that one's life goes better. Please advise.

Answer

All perfect praise be to Allaah, the Lord of the worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allaah and that Muhammad, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, is His slave and Messenger.

For Hajj to be valid and accepted, it is not a condition that one does not face troubles in his life. So you should avoid such thoughts and ask Allaah to accept your righteous deeds. You should then find the reasons behind the problem between you and your husband and try to find solutions within the framework of the pure Sharee'ah. Each of you should forgive the other and live with them in kindness, in compliance to the command of Allaah, The Almighty. You should also know that there is a great wisdom behind that trial, as Allaah is the Most Wise and He does not decree something uselessly. So you should consider it a useful experience for you to lead a better life, with the permission of Allaah. You should also seek a solution for this problem via supplication, entreating Allaah, and utilizing available solutions as much as possible.

Allaah Knows best.
