In-laws spoiling relationship between spouses

Q: My sister in laws have some misunderstandings with me. My in laws and mother in law used to say not to trust me whatever I do. They used to brain wash my husband. I myself expect love from them but they wanted me to respect and love them but they never do the same for me. They are making such problems which are big headache for me. Can in laws command my husband through wrong directions according to Islam?

A: To spoil a relationship between spouses etc. is not the work of Muslims. To instigate and spur one person against another is not Muslims' work. This is shaytaan kaafir behaviour.

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