Fatwa No: 398266

Question

If my wife go outside with my mom or her mom/bro to buy her derss or to visit relative wothout informing me though i wont mind for that, will she be sinfull for that?

Answer

All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord of the Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allah and that Muhammad  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ) is His slave and Messenger.

In principle, it is not permissible for your wife to go out of home except with your permission, but if she goes out because she knows that you do not object to her going out, then this is permissible. Her knowledge that you do not object is a customary permission from you that serves instead of a verbal authorization.

The customary permission from you that serves instead of a verbal or a real authorization is a famous matter among the scholars and it is something established with them.

Allah knows best.
