Women offering Salah in the presence of Ajanib

Q: How should a woman offer Salah (Prayer) if there are Ajanib (men other than a spouse and unmarriageable relatives) present in the place, such as at Al-Masjid Al-Haram (the Sacred Mosque in Makkah)? What should she do if she is traveling and there is no Masjid on the road that provides a Musalla (a place for Prayer) for women?


A: A woman should cover all her body while she is offering Salah, except her face and hands. However, if she offers Salah in the presence of Ajanib, she should cover all her body, including her face and hands. (Part No. 7; Page No. 340) May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
