Medical treatment expenses

Q 1: A husband and wife have a five-month old boy. Physicians informed the husband that his wife has a heart disease and that her illness began since childhood and requires that she travels to France for long term treatment. Moreover, she will become sterile. The husband is a low-waged worker and the physicians said that she will not be healed from this disease except if Allah so wills. What should he do? Should he divorce her, though divorce is the most despised permissible act? If he keeps her, he may not be able to afford her treatment.

A 1: If your wife is ill, yet good with respect to her religion and morals, it is preferable to keep her, be patient with her, and provide for her treatment as much as you are able to. May Allah heal her.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet, his family and Companions.
