What Houses Do Angels Enter?

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Seekersguidance.org

Question: Will angels enter my home if I am not wearing hijab at home?


Dear questioner,

May Allah bless you and increase you in good.

The Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) said, “The Angels do not enter a house in which there is a dog or a picture.” [Bukhari, Muslim]

Imam Nawawi explains, “Those angels that do not enter a house in which there is a dog or a picture are angels who bring mercy and blessings and forgiveness. As for [those angels that bring] protection, they enter into every house.” [Rawhda al-Talibin]

Therefore, while angels of mercy, blessings, and forgiveness do not enter into the house, the angels of protection do.  There is no sound narration that mentions that angels do not enter a home if a woman is not wearing a hijab.

Wallahu a’lam
