If a woman wants to wear niqab (face veil) but her husband dislikes it, what should they do?
The Answer

Dear Brother / Sister,

Wearing the niqab (face veil) is not fard (obligatory). Thus if the husband dislikes it and that leads to a big conflict between couples then she may not wear it. Because wearing niqab is not fard (obligatory) like wearing a head scarf.
