My husband and my family do not get along, they are not muslim, although I have invited them many times, nor do they understand Islam. My husband wants to prevent my parents from seeing my children because he feels they have cursed Allah, although they have not done so. Is this allowed?
We asked our shaykh, Shaykh Muhammad ibn
Saalih al-‘Uthaymeen, about a woman who says, my parents are kaafirs
and my husband will not let the children see them. Does he have any
right to do that?
He answered, may Allaah preserve
him, as follows:
He does not have that right, but she should be tactful
with him. It should be said to the husband that if there is no danger
to the children’s religious commitment, he should not stop them (from
seeing their grandparents). And he can be on the safe side by going
with his children when they visit their grandparents.
