Fatwa ID: 02091
Answered by Mufti Mohammed Tosir Miah
Wife leaving home without husbands permission
The basic principle is that a woman should not leave her husband’s home without his permission, and if she leaves without his permission, then she will be considered as being disobedient. She will also lose her right to maintenance. (Raddul Muhtar p.286 v.5)
The wife will be considered sinful for her actions. It is mentioned in a hadith narrated by Saaiduna Abu Umaamah that the Prophet of Allah said: “There are three whose prayer goes no further than their ears: the runaway slave until he returns, a wife whose husband remains angry with her overnight, and a imam who leads the people in prayer when they object to him doing so.” (Sunan Tirmizi p.83 v.1).
