Advice To Musilmahs Regarding Their Husbands, Part 8

She Should Not Offer Any Nafl Fasts Except With His Permission:


Aboo Hurairah reportede that the Messenger of Allaah (saw) said:

“A woman should not fast when her husband is present except with his permission…”

Note: This applies only when he is present, if he is traveling, or is not present, then it is permissible for her to fast.

The point here is that her fast (which is optional) may cancel out some of his rights (which are fard [compulsory]), especially the right to sexual intercourse.

This right is one of her obligations, while observing a nafl fast is something that is recommended. Undoubtdly, that which is obligatory takes precedence over that which is recomended.
