The maternal cousins as non-Mahrams

Q 4: My maternal cousins wear Hijab (veil) only and not Niqab (face veil) in my presence although they are all of age and their father sees no harm in this. What is the ruling on this matter?

A: Your maternal cousins are not Mahrams (unmarriageable relatives). Therefore, it is not permissible for them to uncover their hair, face, bosoms, legs, or any of their `Awrah (parts of the body that must be covered in public) before you, even if their father sees no harm in it. It is not sufficient to cover their heads with a veil and not to cover their face. May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
