Can a husband stops his wife from seeing her mother?


Can a husband stops his wife from seeing her family? If the wife wants to meet her sisters in other city and wants to go with her mother, can a husband stop her from that? Is he has any right for this?


Assalamu Alaykum

Thank you for your Question.

Kindly refer to The link below for a like Question:

Is it right to send me to live with my Inlaws ? Does he ( husband ) have the right to stop me for visiting my parents? Can he take away my kids?

Try find out why your husband is doing what he is. There has to be a reason for it. If he does, try and resolve the issue. If he doesn’t, it is inappropriate to do so.
You must seek some help from a counselor or local Aalim in this regard.

Kind regards.
