Preventing one’s wife from going to see her parents

Q: Is it permissible for a husband to prevent a disobeying wife to leave the home to see her parents but not to forbid her to maintaining ties with them with phone calls, that’s if she lives in a different country than them?


A: She has the right to visit her parents at least once a week.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
