Women concealing themselves from na mahrams

Q: I have heard that there are two types of Hijab; one that covers the entire body except for the eyes and the other that covers the entire body except for the face and hands. Which of these hijabs is permissible in the Hanafi fiqh?

A: A woman should cover her entire body with the exception of her hands till her wrists before na mahrams.

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