Answered by Dr. Shehzad Saleem

Should parents and their married sons live together or separately? Is it not natural to move out and settle elsewhere?


Married children living with parents or separately is an issue that has been left to culture and circumstances; no ruling has been given by the Sharī‘ah in this regard and wisely so because what maybe possible in one type of family set up may not be in another.
