Keeping a distance from one’s sister

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: I have an elder sister. She is not a good woman. She is a woman with bad character. She is married but had many affairs outside marriage. She is always in modern clothes and not Deeni at all. She just wants to trick men and sleep with them. I hate her. She also does gossiping about me to my friends. I am planning to get married soon. I fear that if she meets my husband she will try to tempt him and fill his ears against him. So, I want to stop talking to her so that she does not interfere in my married life. Can I do that? Can I stay away from her to protect my marriage?


A: You should keep a safe distance from her.

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