    to my knowledge this is 100% true. if it's not viewed as obligatory (only viewed as mustahabb) then unfortunately, regardless of whether she wants the barakah of doing it or prefers to do it, her husband's preference comes first. if it is viewed as obligatory then the husband cannot keep you from doing it. however there is also the nuance of whether it's viewed as fard or wajib - most people that i know see it as wajib and so you may want to consult a mufti on whether the husband can keep her from it because it's not fard.

    personally i would not like to marry anyone who would keep me from wearing it and agree with zesty - i don't know why anyone would marry a sister they know wears niqab if they don't want a wife who wears niqab (and going further why anyone would not want a wife who wears niqab but perhaps that's for another thread, lol). for the sake of the marriage and the wife's happiness and spiritual benefit i don't know why a husband could not compromise on this. however i do know of sisters who've successfully convinced their reluctant husbands it was for the best through patience and effort.

      Just to update you guys, the brother was not aware the sister use to wear the niqab occasionally, this came to light recently. the husband was aware the sister may/may never wear it in the future.
      The sister is not sure if she will ever be ready however if and when the times comes she will without her husbands say so. So what do you think guys?

        Better for the couple to talk it out.

        I'm not defending the husband here, and my wife wears niqaab but for all those slamming him, what if there is a real threat of danger wear they live? And his intention is to protect her from harm so he is following a valid opinion which he feels is better for the situation? Just trying to make people see things from both sides.

          It hasn't happened yet and the sister doesn't think she'll ever be ready? If that's the case, then maybe you're worrying too much?

          I'm not sure if you mentioned your reasoning for not being happy with her wearing it full time, but that would influence my thoughts on the matter. If it's about safety, then I'd say assess the situation properly and don't go by hearsay. I used to think it wasn't safe to wear niqab and a family member warned me of the same after I started, but those worries were pretty exaggerated compared to the reality.

            Why to pursuit at first place niqab wearing sister, if he doesn't want her wear it?
            I wouldn't marry brother, who is anti-niqabi. Alhamdulillah.

              Does he view it as optional and feel there is a increased danger to her if she wears it which is why he is objecting?

              For example, they live in an area with few Muslims and a lot of racism or anti-Muslim sentiment. Or the wife can't drive and has to rely on public transport so increased risk of attack.

              Maybe there is more to this than simply saying he is anti-niqab.

                What purpose does he serve then if he can't be a man and protect his wife who wears niqaab.

                    A relevant question
                    Can the husband force his wife to wear niqab?

                      You should be most extremely happy that your future wife wants to wear full face niqaab in'shaa'ALLAH. A woman's face is most extremely beautiful and the headscarf only enhances her beautiful face, but the wonderful thing about the full face niqaab is that it covers a woman's beautiful face completely from all men to see always. Real masculine chaste men should never allow another man to see any part of his wife's entire body at all including the woman's face.
                      in'shaa'ALLAH my dream/goal is to marry the most extremely excellent chaste virgin devout Muminah woman who never had a boyfriend at all always and who wears full face niqaab always only. So why are you complaining , ALLAH had blessed you with a most extremely wonderful blessing ma'shaa'ALLAH and your upset with this most extremely wonderful blessing that your future wife is trying to be decent in'shaa'ALLAH.

                        I don't think it's that simple. In case she wears niqab full time, she will not be able (willing) to do some things on her own, and her husband is expected to do it, and that's why I think he should have a say in it.

                            I know of some niqabi girls who don't want to go out by themselves , expecting their husband to keep them company. Also, there is a girl I know who doesn't go shopping ever, with or without her husband. I don't think it is fair, or even possible because people today work a lot and have no extra time to waste.

                              I think sisters who want to wear niqab should seek divorce if they have husbands who prevent them from wearing it. If he's bothered by her covering up and being unsupportive, then IMO she's better off without him. That might be a valid reason for divorce, Allahu'Alam.
                              “And We have already created man and know what his soul whispers to him, and We are closer to him than (his) jugular vein.” (Quran 50:16)

                                Does niqab attract unwanted attention from the wrong crowd? imagine your wife asking too wear one for the first time, with all these non muslims feeling frustrated with Islam(the image shown by media) She might make herself a target. I would say no!, honestly hijab is enough for now.
