Woman sharing a room with her brother’s step-son

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: I plan on travelling overseas with my brother. The only issue is the accommodation wherein he has requested that I share the room with his step-son. He is currently 11 / 12 years. There shall be two single beds. Please advise if this is allowed.


A: Though this is not haraam, but it is important that you keep him at a distance from yourself.

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