Fulfilling the rights of one's parents

Q: My parents are alive and I wish they both live with me and I serve them. Presently my father is living with me and my mother lives with my sister. My wife hates my mother and says give me Talaaq before you bring your mother home. There is no chance , I repeat no chance of reconciliation. Except this issue she has a good behaviour with me. Please guide me what should I do?

A: Most women are not comfortable with sharing the kitchen. Separate the kitchen and try and make your wife feel comfortable but don't at all neglect your parents. Show them all the respect and concern that you need to show.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
