Purdah from one’s male cousins

Q: In islam one is meant to keep strict pardah in front of ones cousins. I am Aware of a Girl who after becoming baaligh has done things which are wrong she has exposed her body to her cousins brothers and vise versa she had allowed one of her cousins to play a filthy action of him doing jima in the condition they both had clothes on she has allowed them to touch and feel her. They were the early stages of her becoming baaligh she doesn’t know why she allowed such things to happen. She regrets and has remorse over such wrong doings as well as asking Allah Ta’ala for forgiveness is there anything she could do?


A: She should sincerely repent to Allah Ta’ala for the wrong and she should observe strict purdah from all na mahrams. Refer tohttp://muftionline.co.za/node/419

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
