Ustadha Taimiyyah Zubair explains furthers and answers
My husband doesn't want me to go to Islamic events, what should I do?
It is the right of every person to spend some time in the company of the righteous, and also to visit the masjid. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam specifically instructed men to not prohibit women from going to the masjid. So if a man is prohibiting his wife from this noble work, then he is essentially disobeying the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. It is well known from prophetic traditions that women attended the mosque the Friday prayers, and they even traveled with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam on so many occasions are a Chateau de la Mancha once went for Isha prayers, and she took some time in returning home so the Prophet salallahu
alayhi wa sallam asked her as to where she was, and she told him that she had heard somebody reciting the Quran very beautifully in the masjid. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam went back to the masjid with our shadow below Ana, and he told her that it was Salim radi Allahu anhu. But try to understand why your husband doesn't want you to go. Is it because he feels left out? Or is it because he's genuinely concerned about your health or your time and your well being?
