  • Your brother is your wife’s brother-in-law. Your issue has been addressed by Rasulullah (SAW) is the words of the following: brother-in-law (sister-in-law) is death! This hadith also implies one must not be free in norms and attitude with their brothers/sisters-in-law; going as gym buddies, causal bicycle rides together, tickling each other, etc. are plain forbidden actions between such adults. Your brother may temp your wife towards wrong when she is most vulnerable. People have their ups and downs; shaytan awaits to do his ambush. It is best you make sound choices.
  • If Allah has blessed you with financial resources, then gradually move out of this environment – even to a modest area. Your wife would appreciate this gesture.
  • When you leave home for work/masjid, etc, you deserve peace of mind, your wife also deserves to know that those around her would respect her privacy.

Allah Certainly Knows Best.
