[Q 204] Hair Covering in Front of Father-in-Law


Is it necessary for a woman to cover her hair in front of her father in law?

بسم اللہ الرحمن الرحیم

الجواب بعون الملك الوهاب اللهم هداية الحق والصواب


Father in-law is a mahram for her. Therefore it’s not necessary for her to cover her hair in front of him.

However, there’s no harm if she covers her hair and veils herself in front of him. In the current times it is better that she covers herself especially if she or her father in-law is not elderly.
