I need to know if the verse below relates to any women or only for the wives of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam)?
I see in todays times many Shaykhs speak directly to women and also many gatherings have men and women together.
Allah Ta’ala says in Surah Ahzab, verse 53:
وَإِذَا سَأَلْتُمُوهُنَّ مَتَاعًا فَاسْأَلُوهُنَّ مِنْ وَرَاءِ حِجَابٍ ذَلِكُمْ أَطْهَرُ لِقُلُوبِكُمْ وَقُلُوبِهِنَّ
And when you ask anything from them (the blessed wives of the Prophet), ask them from behind a curtain. That is better for the purity of your hearts and their hearts.
