My son is seven years old and sleeps in the same bed as I do. My husband pesters to make him sleep alone in order to inculcate courage and independence in him .but as every child takes his own time and based on my child's tendencies I personally feel that I should gradually prepare him to sleep alone and not to force him straight away. To this my husband is not agreeing . What am I supposed to do

Since he's 7 it would be reasonable to start the process. Why not set up a small bed for him next to your bed, or put a mattress on the floor of your room? You could also put a double bed in his room and lay down with him while he falls asleep.
