I am a divorced woman with no kids. As a divorced woman do I have to live with my parents again, or am I allowed to become independent and live on my own?


There is nothing in Shariah to make it obligatory on you to stay with your parents, if you are a mature adult woman in full possession of senses. However, Islam insists that you need to ensure that you are able to safeguard your honour and dignity. Once you are confident of that, you may live on your own. At the end of it, never fail to seek the pleasure and acceptance of your parents in your decision.
