Does piety count at all? (7)

August 18, 2014 • Category: Emaan/Faith, Islamic Answers 2014, Marriage

Alhamdulilah, I’ve abstained from drinking, smoking and casual dating, and have in fact always lived a pious life, but it seems to me that piety just doesn’t count at all. People look down on you, and there are high demands and expectations that sisters have. I mean in all that, where would pious men of limited means go? What will they do if sisters have so high standards and aren’t ready to compromise at all?

Should I be worried about my son? (5)

Ever since he was 15 he always told me he is asexual and has no use for marriage or a girl in his life, and he would by no means be able to give her what very religious men would. Other than that, he is a complete loner. He stays in his room for the most part and only during dinner time does he talk to me and his dad- just like ‘how was your day’ and that kind of thing.

The only reason I have stayed with him was my child, who is now 3 years old. But now when I see him not taking care of me as well as my child, I think I should leave now.
