Going to Imambargah/Mehfil/Majlis without Husband’s Permission


Can a wife go to Imambargah/Mehfil or Majlis without her husbands permission?


Salaam Alaykum.

If it is generally accepted between husband and wife that going to majlis whenever  it is held is okay with him, she doesnt need to ask for permission every time she goes. yes, it is good to communicate so he is aware of her whereabouts at a certain time. however, if it is known that he dislikes her participating or attending in majaalis, she should not go. But, a question arises for the husband – what is making him prevent his wife from attending majaalis?

This matter has to be discussed and sorted out between husband and wife.
