Males and females eating separately

Q: We have now six members in the family because I got married. Is it necessary that all the males should eat together and all the female should sit together and eat?


A: Yes. Purda should be observed between the na-mahram males and females.

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