Providing a Shelter for the Wife


Bahishti Zewar, Fiqh, Part 4-Nikah (Marriage) in Islam

1. It is wâjib on the man to provide a shelter for his wife. This place must be such that no other relative of the husband lives there. It must be free from any relative of the husband whereby the husband and wife can live without any formalities. However, if the wife does not mind living with others, it will be permissible for him to keep her in the same house with other relatives of his.
