Q: I understand that a woman’s jannah lies with serving her husband as well as her parents/mother. Often, obedience to the mother’s wishes is disobeying the husband. In cases like this who has more right over the wife? Should preference be given to the mother or to the husband?
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
