How is it necessary for a woman to cover her body at home? Do angels run away if her head is uncovered?
The Answer

Dear Brother / Sister,

It is permissible for a woman to leave her head uncovered at home if there are no non-mahram men. (al-Fatawa'l-Hindiyya, V/333). For, the parts of the body of a woman that need to be covered among mahram people are between her knees and navel. If there are non-mahram men at home or if she is outside, it is haram for her to uncover her head.

(see Halil GÜNENÇ, Günümüz Meselelerine Fetvalar, II/167)
