Due to cultural and traditional beliefs my husband is refusing as he says it will look bad on him. Not caring about my safety and happiness instead he thinks about his pride and reputation. He doesnt think about islam and rulings he thinks of Pakistani culture and traditions

YES IF THATS WHAT ALLAH WILLS,THEN THERE IS NO PROBLEM.BUT IF YOU ARE DOING IT INTENTIONALY WITH THE FEAR OF NOT WANTING TO SPEND ON YOUR WIFE,THEN I DONT THINK ITS GOOD.IF YOU CANT GENUINLY AFFORD A HOUSE,ITS OK. QUESTION,WHY DID YOU MARRY IF YOU CANT AFFORD TO HAVE YOUR OWN HOUSE? ANSWER.IT IS ALLAHS WIIL. SALAAM

If you can not afford your own house you can live in your wife's house

Thank you. But how do I convince my husband this is best for our marriage?

If you want your husbund to care for islamic rullings, inform him about Akirah and 'adhabul qubur. Thinking about Akhirah can certainly change a person's mindset.

Thank you. But what are the islamic rulings on living in a wifes house? Are there any bad points with livinf in the husbands house in islam as he has three brothers around my age that are not my muharrum

As far as i know , there is no special rulling on the subject of husband living in his wife's house. But he should try to afford his own house. Otherwise, what's the point of marriage if your husband cann't support you ? And if you live in your husband's house and find gaire muharrams living there too , like his three brothers , you should cover your body properly . You don't need to wear hijab or burkah around them all the time. You should try to alway stay away from them as much as possible and you should cover your body neck to toe and hand to hand with clothes .you don't always need to cover your face while you ar inside your house though. And when you talk to gaire mahram you should remain modest and you should only talk when necessary.

Yes..surely..but when the husband would be able to buy his own house,then its better to leave that wife's parents house that time.
