My husband sells alcohol, what should I do?
I just want to start by saying that my husband is doing a business which involves selling alcohol, and he has been doing it for around 15 years. When we got married I knew that he had a job but didn't know it also included selling alcohol.
After our marriage, he said that he'll look for other options, instead he got his own business which was a covenience store, also involved selling alcohol. I tried to convince him to stop selling it, but he only said he'll try.
Sometimes he became angry and said I am being unthankful. He became verbally abusive and since our marriage and after two kids, we don't have any communication left, that is 10 years ago. He has changed so much that we don't have feelings for each other, we don't have any intimacy left. He also is surrounded by bad company, who drink and are involved in the same business. He also is not a religious person, only he pays Zakat and Sadaqa.
My question is since I am a sinful person too I have sincerely repented but I know that our income is not Halal, so what should I do?
I am a patient of arthritis too, but I am really fearful of Allah and the hereafter, and also what I am knowingly giving my children! I am giving them all possible knowledge of Islamic teachings but they always have these questions, "Why doesnt Dad have to pray?"
Please tell me what should I do because death can come anytime and what answers will I have to these questions!
