Q: What rights does a wife have in deciding where the home location should be?
Mufti Siraj adds:
However in one aspect the wife has the final say in accommodation, and that is security. The wife is entitled to live in a place that is secure and safe, and where there are good, reliable neighbours, as mentioned in the Works of Fiqh. This is her exclusive right which the husband must honour.
And Allah Ta'aala knows best.
