Woman leaving her husband's house without his permission

Q 2: What is the ruling on a woman leaving her husband's house and staying at her father's house without the husband's permission? What is the ruling on her giving priority to the obedience of her father over that of the husband? It should be mentioned that the husband is a practicing Muslim. Answer us, may Allah reward you good.

A: It is impermissible for a woman to leave her husband's house except after taking his permission, whether she is going to visit her parents or others, for this is one of his rights over her, unless there is a Shar`y (Islamically lawful) reason that forces her to go out. May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
