Being absent from one's wife for more than six months
Dear Brothers & Sisters,As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
I'm getting married back home , but unfortunately I will not be able to bring her to this country because I,m student. I know a Hadith where Omar ibn Alkhatab (RAA)- if I,m right - said that husband and wife must not be way from each other for more than six months. Unfortunately , I will only be able to comeback after a year minumum. Am I allowed to do that using the islaamic principal "necessity dictates exception".

Praise be to Allaah.
If your wife accepts your being away for this length of time, then there is nothing wrong with it. May Allaah bless us and you with all strength and goodness.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
He did the marriage contract with her and was intimate with her without intercourse in Ramadaan, and he had intercourse with her before announcing the marriage!
