Rasulullaah (SAW) said, “Guard yourselves against mixing with women (who are not Mahram).” “What about the brother-in-law (husband’s brother)?” an Ansaari Sahabi (RA) asked. “The brother-in-law is death,” Rasulullaah (SAW) replied.

[Bukhaari 5232, from Hadhrat Uqba bin Aamir (RA)]

This Hadith makes it evident that it is necessary for a woman to conceal herself from her husband’s brother because failure to do so spells destruction.
