Going in front of non-mahrams while in the state of janaabah

Fatwaa ID: 1469


If after intercourse, naapaaki ki haalat mein, you go infront of naamehram is it gunnah? Like a friend said jitnay steps you take, that much gunnah you get.

In the Name of Allaah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salaamu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullaahi wa-barakaatuh.

At the outset, a person, man or woman, should not be going in front of non-mahrams of the opposite gender unnecessarily. If they have to go, then they must ensure that appropriate hijaab, modesty and etiquettes are observed. Unrestricted interaction is impermissible. Nevertheless, when they do go in the appropriate manner, it is not necessary to be in the state of purity. Being in the state of janaabah will not incur them any sins. However, in general circumstances, it is unadvisable to unnecessarily delay performing the ghusl. A Muslim should always try to be in the state of purity.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best.
