Purdah with non-Muslim women

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: Should I make purdah with non-Muslim women? May I request the proof, if the answer is yes?

Bismillaah

A: Yes.

In Surah Ahzaab, Allah Ta`ala says:

لَّا جُنَاحَ عَلَيْهِنَّ فِي ءَابَآئِهِنَّ وَلَآ أَبْنَآئِهِنَّ وَلَآ إِخْوَٰنِهِنَّ وَلَآ أَبْنَآءِ إِخْوَٰنِهِنَّ وَلَآ أَبْنَآءِ أَخَوَٰتِهِنَّ وَلَا نِسَآئِهِنَّ وَلَا مَا مَلَكَتْ أَيْمَـٰنُهُنَّ

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