‘A-‘uu-zu Billaahi minash-Shay-taanir- Rajiim.
(I seek refuge in Allaah from Satan the outcast)
(In the name of Allaah, the Beneficent, the Merciful)
لَّا جُنَاحَ عَلَيْهِنَّ فِىٓ ءَابَآئِهِنَّ وَلَآ أَبْنَآئِهِنَّ وَلَآ إِخْوَٰنِهِنَّ وَلَآ أَبْنَآءِ إِخْوَٰنِهِنَّ وَلَآ أَبْنَآءِ أَخَوَٰتِهِنَّ وَلَا نِسَآئِهِنَّ وَلَا مَا مَلَكَتْ أَيْمَٰنُهُنَّ وَٱتَّقِينَ ٱللَّهَ إِنَّ ٱللَّهَ كَانَ عَلَىٰ كُلِّ شَىْءٍ شَهِيدًا 55
|55. It is no sin for them (thy wives) (to converse freely) with their fathers, or their sons, or their brothers, or their brothers’ sons, or the sons of their sisters or of their own women, or their slaves. O women! Keep your duty to Allah. Lo! Allah is ever Witness over all things.||55.

It was commanded to the men in the previous verse that they should not come before the wives (May Allaah be pleased with them) of the Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him). By this, close relatives feared also.
In this verse, it has been cleared and described that coming of women before close relatives is not forbidden. In this connection, it has been explained in Suratun-Nuur and here again the same matter has been manifested, that is to say, the women can come before following close relatives. And the same commandment is also for the wives (May Allaah be pleased with them) of the Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) – father, sons, brothers, sons of brothers, sons of sisters or Muslim women who come at homes for working, or own possessed bond-maids and female-slaves. Non-Muslim men, women or male servants are not included in it. The Muslim women should not come before them as it has been explained in Suratun-Nuur (Chapter “Light” – 24).
After that, it is commanded: This is only apparent precautionary measures to stop false thoughts”. The actual thing is fear of Allaah Almighty for correction of the heart. Therefore, you should abide by these commandments having fear of Allaah Almighty, because nothing is hidden from Him.
