Legal marital rights after contracting marriage and before consummation

Q 2: What are the legal rights of the husband after concluding the marriage contract and before consummating the marriage? Should his wife ask for his permission before doing anything such as traveling, fasting, going out or suchlike?

A: It is obligatory upon the woman to maintain her honor and keep herself chaste during that period. She should not travel except with the permission of her family and in the company of a Mahram (spouse or permanently unmarriageable relative). She should not leave the house except with their permission. She does not need to seek the permission of her husband during that period. May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family and his Companions.
