Q: I am married and pregnant with my first child. Currently I am staying with my parents in Saudi while my husband is in Kenya. I came for iqamah renewal. My husband sent a ticket for me to return but my parents got involved by not letting me go. Now my husband sent a text saying that he doesn’t want me because of my parents. I tried calling and texting him but he isn’t replying nor is his sister replying. Is getting away from my parents be wrong Islamically? I don’t know what else to do.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
