Are the Uncles of my Husband Mahram to me and do I have to Cover in Front of my Stepfather?

Answered by Ustadh Tabraze Azam
Question: Asalaam Aleikum
Who is considered mahram to me under the Hanafi madhab as a married woman. I want to know if my husband’s father’s brothers are mahram to me. Also do I have to cover in front of my stepdad as well since my mother remarried about 10 yrs ago and they are in their late 60s?
Answer: Wa alaikum assalam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh,
I pray that you are in the best of health and faith, insha’Allah.
A mahram is a person with whom marriage is permanently unlawful.
In general, this includes your sons and grandsons, fathers and grandfathers [including in-laws], father’s brothers, and your nephews. Your stepfather too is included here.
Please see: Who is Mahram
And Allah alone gives success.
