i am 17yrs of age, i wear the full hijab, jilbab n niqaab, i have been doin so for the past yr or so, my family is not very practisin-i have 3 brother in laws, they are married to my elder sisters and have been a part of the family for more than 10yrs, meaning they've been there in my days of jahil, i find it hard to observe hijaab in front of them as my family think it isn't necessary to do so in front of them, so whats the minimum i should do, should i just wear the scarf and not the niqaab-i wear salwar kameez at home, do i have to wear the jilbab also?, theyv seen me from the age of 3yrs, does that make any differnce? i have no doubts of fitnah,however i would like islamic viewpoints inshallah, may Allah be pleased with you

Nabi SAW has said : The brother in law is like death.

The full hijab and niqab will have to be observed regardless of whether they have seen you since you were small or not.

And Allah knows best.
