Q: In which scenarios would it be permissible for a man to go camping with his friends for four days (with the consent of his wife)?
– Would it be permissible if her parents come from Pretoria to stay with her in Cape Town in the same apartment as her while he is away
– Would it be permissible if she stays alone in her apartment but has a mahram living in the same town
– Would it be permissible if he leaves her alone to go in jamaat for four days
– Would it be permissible if she stays with her sister in law while her husband and her sister in law’s husband go on holiday or in Jamaat together if they both have a mahram such as an uncle living in the same town but the two girls would be alone in the apartment and would follow their husband’s instructions not to go out after dark?
A: I suggest that this should be done for security reasons and for her mental ease and comfort.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
