Q: During the time of the Sahaba there was a girl who’s husband had gone out for a few days and asked her not to leave the house. During those few days, the girl’s father was sick and she really wanted to see him but had no contact with her husband to ask his permission. Eventually her father passed away and she didn’t even attend his funeral as she couldn’t disobey her husband’s orders. She later found out that her father was doomed to Jahannum but because of her act of obeying her husband, her father was granted Jannah. Is this story true? What is the full story? Would it be a sin to tell anybody this story if it is not authentic?
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
