Are the husbands of paternal and maternal aunts Mahrams?

Q 4: Are my maternal and paternal aunts’ husbands regarded as Mahrams (unmarriageable relatives) to me? If so, is it permissible to reveal my face in front of them and shake hands with them?

A: Maternal and paternal aunts’ husbands are not considered Mahrams; so it is not (Part No. 17; Page No. 218) permissible for a woman to uncover her face in front of them, because they are Ajanib (men other than a husband or permanently unmarriageable male relatives). It is not permissible to shake hands with them either. The same applies to brothers-in-law. May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
