Regularly visiting my parents

Reference: Fataawa Noor ‘alad-Darb – Question No.6495, Pages 317-318, Volume 12

Question: With my husband’s consent, I want to visit my parents, brothers and sisters who all live in Yemen, so if I find a mahram then this simplifies matters. So am I considered to be squandering my husband’s money by taking these visits every year? Bearing in mind I do not burden him beyond his means, and I am unable to be apart from my parents and family for more than a year, so is there any harm in me travelling [to visit them every year]?

Response: There is no harm in you travelling [to visit your parents and family], because this journey is one by which you intend to be dutiful to your parents. And may Allaah reward your husband for helping you [to do this], and [in shaa.-Allaah] he shall be rewarded. And we ask Allaah (Subhaanahu wa Ta’aala) to recompense him for what he has spent upon [your] visits [to your parents and family], and no doubt whoever assists another upon [doing something] good, then he will get a similar reward to the one who did the [good] deed.
