Professional needing to talk to the lady of the house.


I am working for a apartment complex and trying to resolve a issue this lady is having with her sink. When I arrived I was greeted by her younger male children. They were unable to show me what was wrong. She had placed herself in the closet. If she could show me the issue, I could fix it. Is there a way I can get permission to talk with her while her husband is working?


Wa alaykum salam

Thank you for your question.

Islam allows a woman to talk to a man as long as she maintains her chastity and hijab.

In the question mentioned above,the lady can communicate with you  in her hijab and with the permission of her  husband .
