Is it proper for a wife to accompany her husband in public when shopping or sightseeing?

    Is there any reason to believe otherwise? It's certainly a day to day occurrence in every Muslim-majority country I've been to. Dec 13, 2016 at 2:43

    We seek effortful questions showing prior research. Asking about permissibility without indicating a reason it's not the default ruling is considered off-topic. Please edit the question accordingly. Mar 31, 2018 at 4:02

Sure, that's perfectly fine. There are no Islamic texts that prohibit or discourage her accompanying him. The only conditions are that they behave decently in public (no public displays of affection/intimacy) and that they avoid places where evil/sins are present.
