Keeping Silent When Family Behaves in an Immoral Manner

Major Sins # 29

Seeing ones Womenfolk Behaving in an Immoral Fashion and Keeping Silent


Ibn Umar (may Allaah be pleased with him and his father) reported that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “There are three whom Allaah will deprive of Paradise: the one who drinks intoxicants, the one who is disobedient to his parents, and the one who accepts immoral conduct on the part of his family.”

(Reported by Imaam Ahmad, 2/69; see also Saheeh al-Jaami, 3047).


One of the many examples of this in modern times is men turning a blind eye to their daughters or wives contacting non-mahram men and chatting to them in a way that may be described as “romantic,” or accepting one of the women of his household being alone with a non-mahram man, or allowing them to sit alone with a driver or other employee, or letting them go out without proper hijaab, so that everyone may look at them, or bringing home immoral magazines and movies.
