If I invite a friend of mine,
a bachelor or married, to have lunch with me in my house, is it permissible to make my family join us in this meal?
It is not permissible to have the meal in the presence of the wife, unless she is a Mahram (unmarriageable) for this guest. (Part No. 17; Page No. 87) May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
