Husband allowing his brother the use of his bathroom

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: We live with my in-laws. While I was away this weekend my husband let his 25 year old brother use our personal bathroom. There are 6 other bathrooms in the house. My husband knows that I do not like to share a bathroom. Do my in laws need permission to enter into my personal area, or his my husbands permission enough?


A: If it is the husband’s house and he has allowed someone to use some section of the house at a time that you are not around and it does not interrupt your program in any way then this should not be a problem.

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