Number of times a wife can visit her family


Sir my question is that how many times can
a wife go to her parents house in a week and what is the say of husband in this matter.

Praise be to Allaah.

Upholding family ties is obligatory, as Allaah says
(interpretation of the meaning):

“… fear Allaah through Whom you demand your mutual
(rights), and (and do not cut of the relations of) the wombs (kinship)…”
[al-Nisa’ 4:1]

“And give to the kindred his due and to the poor…”
[al-Isra’ 17:26]

Abu Hurayrah (may Allaah be pleased with him) reported that the
Messenger of Allaah
(peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said:

“Allaah created His creation, and when He had finished, al-rahm
(the tie of kinship) got up. He said, ‘What is it?’ Al-rahm said: “This is
the position of one who is seeking refuge with You from being cut off.’ He said,
‘Will you not be pleased if I should take care of the one who takes care of you, and
cut off the one who cuts you off?’ Al-rahm said, ‘Of course, O Lord.’ He
said, ‘Then it will be so.’” Abu Hurayrah quoted (interpretation of the
meaning): “Would you then, if you were given the authority, do mischief in the
land, and sever your ties of kinship?” [Muhammad 47:22]. (Reported by
al-Bukhaari, 6948)

Upholding the ties of kinship means being kind to one’s relatives,
whether by giving them material things or treating them well. The least of this is
greeting them with salaam and not forsaking them.

There is no limit in sharee’ah to the number of times a person
should visit his or her relatives, because this will differ according to people’s
circumstances, how busy they are, how close or how far away they live, and the
circumstances, employment and other commitments of the husband who is to bring his wife to
visit her family. Some wives live close to their own families, and others may live in
another city or country, all of which are factors in the matter. But the husband should
realize that it is not permissible for him to deliberately prevent his wife from visiting
her family and upholding her ties of kinship with them. By the same token, the wife should
not exhaust her husband with frequent trips and expenses that he cannot bear. She should
make requests of him commensurate with his capabilities. We ask Allaah to put all our
affairs right. May Allaah bless our Prophet Muhammad.
