Wife not fully believing in the oneness of Allah

Question ID: 28163

Assalaamulaikum Mufti

My wife and I have been married for over 10 years and have 3 children. She was Roman Catholic before and embraced Islam before we made nikkah. She is a good wife and wonderful mother to our children. Over the years, she has been to many teachers but has not found a suitable one as they were teaching her rituals in Islam and could not answer the questions she had,based on her background and upbringing. I could always sense that she did not fully believe that Mohamed (SAW) is the last menssenger of Allah and when we would get into disussions about it, it would always be a heated discssion and then she would rather remain silent. I therefore never raised this issue too often. Over the last few months we have had this discussion again and it is clear that she still believes in the fact that Esa (AS) is the son of God. She has never tried to influence the kids in this way and even teaches them their madressa work

What Should I do?
Should I persist and be patient, hoping that one day she will truly believe?
Would I be allowed to stay married to her knowing that she does not fully believe in he oneness of Allah?

Give her the books on our site "Why accept Islam" and "An invitation to Islaam" under the Dawah section (publications).
Be patient, Make Duaa. Talk with cleverness
