Answer:

 

Joint family acceptable

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.

 

It is absolutely acceptable in Islam to live in a joint family, if the members of the family wish to do so. If the wife does not wish to live in a joint family of her husband for any reason whatsoever, she is well within her rights given to her in Islam to demand that her husband provide her a separate dwelling from his family; and if the husband has the means, he should fulfill his wifes demand of separate housing.

 

What the wife, who exercises her right to a separate dwelling cannot demand, is that her husband also leave his family house and live with her, if he does not wish to do so.

 

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.

 

Your Brother in Islam,

 

 

Burhan
