What do the noble ‘ulamā’ of the Mighty Sharī’ah say in this matter: My wife often goes to visit her sister at her house in another town and sometimes she spends the night there as well. I am aware that the sister’s husband is not a mahram for my wife, however she is not alone with him there. Is there any blame in this according to the Sharī’ah?
Questioner: Ammaar from UK

الجواب بعون الملک الوھاب اللھم ھدایۃ الحق والصواب
If your wife veils herself from her sister’s husband taking into consideration all the requirements of the Sharī’ah then there is no harm in her spending the night at her sister’s home.
However, in our time safety is in avoiding such a scenario, in particular in a country like England where houses are small which makes veiling in accordance with the Sharī’ah a difficult matter to fulfil.
