Hijab for Mahrams

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by CouncilofUlama.co.za

Q: To what extent should women use their hijab when their husband or others are performing an act of worship in their rooms?

A:If those present are strangers, she should cover her entire body including her face. Only the hands and the feet can be exposed. If those present are mahrams, the area from her chest till her knees should be covered. Exposing that part of the body, which she is allowed to expose, will not affect the ibaadat of those present. However, it is better for her to cover her body as well as her hair to allow the Malaa’ika to be present.
