Ruling on observing hijaab in front of one’s son in law

Dear Brothers & Sisters,
As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
Some women wear hijaab in front of their daughters’ husbands, and they refuse to greet them with salaam or shake hands. Is it permissible for them to do that or not?
(There may be some grammatical and spelling errors in the above statement. The forum does not change anything from questions, comments and statements received from our readers for circulation in confidentiality.)

Praise be to Allaah.

The husband of a woman’s daughter is one of the mahrams through marriage, so it is permissible for him to see of her what he is permitted to see of his mother, sister, daughter and all other mahrams. For a woman to cover her face, hair, forearms etc. in front of her daughter’s husband is a kind of extremism in hijaab. Refusing to shake hands with him when meeting is also a kind of extremism. That may lead to problems or a breakdown in relations. She should avoid being extreme in this manner unless she has some reason to doubt him or she feels that the way he looks at her is not proper, in which case she is doing the right thing.

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
