Living in the same room with a Hindu

Q: My cousin is living with a Hindu girl in the same room. The room is adorned with idols and pictures. She keeps the Quraan Sharif on the same rack where idols and pictures are kept. To perform namaz she has to face that rack where idols and pictures are placed so she places a curtain in between. Is she wrong in anything and what else should she do?


A: She should either move out of that room or request that Hindu girl to leave the idols etc. in some other section of the house.

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