Women remaining at home

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: What is the shariah ruling about women taking kids to public parks? My husband is never willing to take our kids to park all on his own. He gets angry if I present the idea of him going with children only. I have to go with them (in full purdah, keeping my gaze lowered), am I sinning?


A: As far as possible encourage the husband to take the children out. It is safest for women to be at home.

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