Is it permissible for the wife to allow people entering her husband’s house whilst he is absent?
This is not permissible except if they are Mahaarim to her (from the people she can’t marry) such as her father, or the husband’s father, or her sister, or her son, or her sister’s son or her paternal or maternal uncle or people similar to them. And to Allaah belongs all success, and may peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad (salla Allaahu alaihi wa sallam), his family and his companions.
