I want to discuss about the separation of my sister with my brother in law. In what circumstances is it permissible? She is having hard time with her in laws and no support from her spouse either emotionally or financially. She is the bread earner and who no one respects her no matter what. She has put lot of patience since 9 years. My father is old and there is no one to speak to her in laws about their torture put on to her. What do you suggest?

The biggest sin is to ask a wife to remain patience when there is abuse and torture by the husband abd the in laws. God does not allow injustice to take place in these circumstances. Imām Hussain who stood against justice it was not against just political justice, it was against all form of justice. I suggest you write to the office of Sayyed khamenie and seek a divorce based on the abuse
