Dear Mufti Elias,
Is it allowed for a son to request or demand his wife not to remove her hijab in front of his mother and father? This is so since the son knows that his parents may discuss his wife’s features with other people, especially the mother with other women who will then tell their husbands and so forth? So this question in twofold: First, is it permissible for him to order his wife to not remove the hijab inform of his parents? Second, if yes what are the guidelines, and if no, what about the possibility of his parents describing her to others?
