Q: I am a twenty-five-year-old Yemeni man and I married three years ago. A dispute occurred between the family of my wife and my family. My father ordered me (Part No. 25; Page No. 199) to divorce my wife and out of obedience to him, I divorced her. Later, I married another woman after my first divorce, but my father also ordered me to divorce the second wife without a reason and he speaks inappropriately about her. There is no legal reason to divorce her except that my father insists; however, I find her to be a good wife. Your Honor, what should I do as my father orders me to do so?
Is it permissible to divorce her in obedience to my father while she did commit any wrong, or should I keep her
even if it results in my father being angry because he insists on this? Kindly advise? May Allah reward you.
You must obey your father and treat him kindly, but you should not divorce your wife at the request of your father as long as she is good and righteous.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
