Alsalam alaikum, 1-Islamically, is cooking and cleaning solely part of a womens (married/unmarried)duty? Is it something she must learn to please Allah (SWT)? 2- Does a (married/unmarried) women really need to seek permission from a male relative if she's going somewhere. Especially when the male relative leaves whenever they want, and returns whenever they want. Put in mind that the women might leave to do necesary things like picking up kids from school, paying bills, getting groceries..etc. Letting that person know is understandable but Asking Permission every single time?"
