Answered by: Maulana Mohammed Kamran Abid
I was overweight and had a lot of fat on my thighs and buttocks. I managed to lose it after heavy exercises. But my husband is not liking it as my big buttocks were a source of sexual pleasure for him. He wants me to regain the weight. Do I have to obey him?
In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
A major part of a women’s adornment for her husband is her body. A wife should look after her body-figure and maintain its beauty as much as possible. She is allowed to go through any permissible means to please her husband. Therefore, you can obey your husband as long as it is not harming you or making you do action against the Shari’ah.
Only Allah knows best
