(Fatwa: 763/668/L=1431)

(1) If there is no non-mahram in the house, then the girls can keep their head open while eating, drinking water and sleeping, however it is better to cover one's head while eating.
(2) The length of girl's qamis (kurta) should be below knees so that it covers the satr well.
(3) It is allowable for girls to keep their head open in front of their mahram; however it should not be made habit.

Allah knows Best!
