Husband dissappear for ten years
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 none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
Your Question: ….Before 10 years he dissappear from her house due to some financial Crisis. So Still , she has to wait for him?, Please let us know.
If one’s husband has ‘disappeared’ for such a considerable period of time and has had absolutely no contact with one’s wife or his family, and the wife fears that he is lost, or Allah forbid, dead…..she is well within her rights to approach a Shariah Court and the Shariah Judge would declare her husband officially lost, and grant her a divorce in her marriage. She would then be free to marry any other person of her choice.
Your Question: At this time , is it Permissible for her to wear the Jewellery and ornaments. Please clarify about this,
If one’s husband is feared lost or has disappeared, regardless of the period of time, the wife is well within her rights in Islam to wear as much jewelry and ornaments as she wills and pleases.
The one and only time a believing woman is prohibited in Shariah from wearing any jewelry or adornments of beauty is during her mourning and waiting period of ‘iddah’ at the death of her husband, and that too for only four months and ten days after the death of her husband.
Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 2.371 Narrated by Zainab bint Abi Salama
I went to Um Habibah (r.a.), the wife of Prophet (saws), who said, "I heard the Prophet (saws) saying, 'It is not lawful for a woman who believes in Allah and the Last Day to mourn for any dead person for more than three days except for her husband, (for whom she should mourn) for four months and ten days'."
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah’s 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 and well wisher in Islam,
