Wa alaykum assalam warahmatullah wabarakatuh,

In the Name of Allah, the All-Merciful, the Mercy-Giving,

Peace and blessings be upon His noble Prophet Muhammad.

Your brothers-in-law are not mahram (non-marriageable males) to you and hence you have to observe your full hijab (Islamic dress code) in their presence. Of course, this could be quite challenging when you live in their houses for a long period; particularly, if the house is not big enough.

Your husband has to be aware of such an awkward situation you will be facing. If he is not aware, you need to approach him gently and remind him of the limits prescribed by Allah regarding your association with your non-mahram in-laws. It is his responsibility as well to help you not to infringe the limits of Allah.

Such issues need to be settled through soft dialogue and mutual consultation keeping the pleasure of Allah in front of your eyes after all.

Almighty Allah knows best.
