As far as I know, the women should be covered (متحجبة) when praying, I understand that the women should be covered when meeting other people, but when she is "meeting" God, does that make sense? God can see everything, wherever, whenever.

Can someone explain the purpose of the women being covered when praying, given the fact that :

  • she is alone in face of God
  • God can see everything no matter what human being could do

Thanks

    I'll add that it's not just women, but men also must be covered in the way prescribed for them (during salah and other times).

  • Narrated from the Prophet determine clothes during the prayer for men and women, not only for women

  • That this covered is not for covered person's (men \ women) awrah outside of prayer only !!,

    But because the right of prayer and it's worth not because they are awrah ...

  • And for men they must also cover the shoulders during prayer, knowing that shoulders is not awrah for the men

حَدَّثَنَا أَبُو عَاصِمٍ، عَنْ مَالِكٍ، عَنْ أَبِي الزِّنَادِ، عَنْ عَبْدِ الرَّحْمَنِ الأَعْرَجِ، عَنْ أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ، قَالَ قَالَ النَّبِيُّ صلى الله عليه وسلم ‏ "‏ لاَ يُصَلِّي أَحَدُكُمْ فِي الثَّوْبِ الْوَاحِدِ، لَيْسَ عَلَى عَاتِقَيْهِ شَىْءٌ ‏"‏‏.‏

The Prophet said, "None of you should offer prayer in a single garment that does not cover the shoulders."

[Sahih al-Bukhari : 359]

  • And I've mentioned that Ibn Omar, may Allah be pleased with him, he said to his servant, Nafi when he saw praying head Exposed:

"What do you think if you went out to the people you go out like that? Said: No, he said: God is more deserving of his beautifying"

Previous word to say in the novel Bayhaqi:

"If one of you prayed should him dressed,So god more deserving of adorning him"

No doubt Allah is Aware of all things at all times and does not make sense for him hidden. No passers by its servants.But the human being to worship God sense and speaks with him, you should wear the best clothes in his presence.It is clear that the most suitable dresses for women is the sign of chastity and purity ,is her best clothes to reflect her moods. Such a suit is just worshiped,Even in the case of men, not only thats forbidden with a bare body , u should dressed be a sign of respect to GOD. mehraboon from iran

Why should women be covered during prayers? God is aware of everything at all times and has no meaning for him, hidden or hidden. He is not illegitimate with his servants either, but man sees himself worshiping in the presence of God and speaks to him, in which case he must wear the most appropriate clothes in his presence. It is clear that the most suitable dress for a woman is the perfect dress; That is, the clothes that are a sign of his chastity and purity and reflect his best moods. Only such a dress is worthy of worship. Man goes to God in prayer, and while the angels of the Divine Throne are present, he worships God in an official assembly. Therefore, since prayer is in fact a presence and a burden to the door of the Lord of the worlds, in this assembly the more complete, clean and fragrant the clothes are, the more desirable it is. Imam Sadiq (AS) says: "Worship God as if you see him, if you do not see him, he will see you".
