Do Muslim females have to cover their hair in front of non Muslim females?

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Darulifta-Deoband.com
Asalamoalaikum. Do muslim females have to cover their hair infront of non muslim females? Is it allowed to ask a non muslim female to wax the forearms of a muslim female?

Answer

(Fatwa: 196/196=M/1429)

 

(1) The non-Muslim women are like strange men; therefore Muslim women should not uncover their hair to non-Muslim women:

والذمیۃ کالرجل الأجنبی في الاصح فلاتنظر إلی بدن المسلمۃ (در مختار)

(2) It is not right.

Allah (Subhana Wa Ta’ala) knows Best
