Can husband stay with wife?
Mumeneen Brothers and Sisters,
As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh.  (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)

One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
Assalamalaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuhu

I have a qn to ask : what if the husband has many brothers to take care of his parents but the wife has no father, no sister, no brother only mother. Is it permissible for the husband to stay with his wife at the wife`s place.

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad(saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.

Firstly, just because a man has many brothers to take care of his parents, does not in any way mean that the man is absolved from his obligatory duty to serve his parents; it would be righteousness and a source of earning huge rewards from Allah Subhanah if the man tries to serve his parents to the best of his ability, whether he is near or far!

Your Question: Is it permissible for the husband to stay with his wife at the wife`s place.
Islam has laid the complete financial responsibility of food, clothing and shelter, etc. on the husband in a marriage. But there is absolutely nothing in Shariah or Islamic Law that prohibits a husband living with his wife at his wifes house; provided neither the husband forces his wife to this situation, nor the wife forces the husband to this arrangement! If husband and wife, both are comfortable with this arrangement of their own free wills, there is absolutely no harm in living in the wifes house.

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
