Husband forcing to stay with in laws in his absence


My husband lives abroad. He is there since last two months and he insists me to live with his family i.e. my in laws. But I don’t want to live with them because they don’t treat me well. They lie about me. They use abusive language and are always trying to create conflicts between me and my husband. Do I have the right to refuse my husband about staying with my in laws? I stayed there for a few weeks but their behaviour was intolerable so i came back to my parents. Now he is again asking me to go there despite knowing what haooens with me over there. He will call me to stay with him after a couple of month. So i am confused if this is disobedience of husband or do i have the right to say no?? Please guide me.


Wa alaykum salaam

If you think staying with his parents will create more problems, you can say no to him.
But if possible, do this without being rude. Very gently and logically try and explain to him the reason behind your decision.
