Nasihah (Advice): Immodesty
Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam said: “When immodesty is found in a thing, it most certainly taints it, and when modesty is found in a thing, it most certainly beautifies it.” (Bukhari)
Question and Answer:
- Should a wife make Hijaab from her brother-in-law/s?
(Question published as received)
- One of the misconceptions that is present in Muslim societies in general is the laxity towards relations with a brother-in-law. However, when we look at the teachings of Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam we find that we should be very careful because that laxity can easily lead to sin. Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam said: “The brother-in-law is death.” (Bukhari)
More so, the wife is considered to be a non-Mahram (stranger) to the brother-in-law and should practice Hijab with such non-Mahrams (strangers).
