Do I need to give a reason to my wife for not allowing her to do something ? like for instance working or going out during the day sometimes ?
You are not obliged to furnish a reason.
However, in the interests of a better and more amicable relationship between the spouses, we suggest you furnish a reason to her whenever you prevent her from doing something.
and Allah Ta’ala Knows Best
