عنوان مقاله [English]
Majority of Shi‘a jurists believe in the absolute
unlawfulness of woman’s leaving home without
permission of the spouse unless for mandatory duties.
Following majority’s opinion, a good number of lawyers
have maintained that woman’s leaving home without
permission of the spouse for any purpose is not allowed.
In the present essay, proofs concerning this problem,
including Qur’anic verses, hadiths, and principles, are
surveyed and it is thereby proved that conventional exit
without spouse’s permission, conditional upon observing
spouse’s matrimonial right, is lawful.
