Listening to one's husband

Q: If my mother forbids me but I almost convince my husband that I will do hijama, then is it permissible for me to do it? I don't live with my husband yet but soon we will be living together and I have an illness which can break our marriage and of course my mother doesn't know about this illness. And I have many other illnesses. So can I go without my mother's permission if my husband gives me permission?

If my husband again forbids me after getting convinced, can I go?

A: Yes. Don't mention it to your mother.

It is important to maintain a degree of respect and obedience. By your husband asking you not to do it then don't do it.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
