Women driving

Q: I need advice. My father in-law has arranged for my wife and his other 2 daughters to go for there drivers licence, Masha Allah. Should he have asked for my permission to proceed with this arrangement, or he has the right to do this without my consent, and further more he arranged that my wife must come to his home in order to go for her lessons, and the mum will fetch her from my place and bring her back. I’m I wrong in questioning my wife, as to why she can’t be picked up from my place instead, as I would like to know with who she’s going.


A: We totally discourage women from driving.

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