The Ruling on a Woman Sleeping Alone, Apart From Her Husband, in a Separate Room

Is it permissible for a woman to sleep alone, in a separate room, so long as she does not refuse to give her husband his lawful rights?

There is no sin in that, if the husband agrees to it, and the room is safe. But if the husband does not agree to it, then she has no right to be alone, because that is against accepted custom, unless it is stated as a condition in the marriage contract, due to her not wishing anyone to sleep with her in the room, for some reason or another. For Muslims must abide by their conditions.
