It is mandatory that women wear cloths that cover their whole bodies. But since this question is about Hijab. Allah tells us in the Qur'an: وَقُل لِّلۡمُؤۡمِنَـٰتِ يَغۡضُضۡنَ مِنۡ أَبۡصَـٰرِهِنَّ وَيَحۡفَظۡنَ فُرُوجَهُنَّ وَلَا يُبۡدِينَ زِينَتَهُنَّ إِلَّا مَا ظَهَرَ مِنۡهَا‌ۖ وَلۡيَضۡرِبۡنَ بِخُمُرِهِنَّ عَلَىٰ جُيُوبِہِنَّ‌ۖ وَلَا يُبۡدِينَ ...

I am afraid what you wrote shows that you're trying to alter Islam to fit to your carnal desires. Human sexuality in Islam is not for fun and pleasure but it has a sacred function that is undermined by a hedonistic view of human sexuality. Sexuality with all its pleasures and attractions, is to serve a noble purpose: long term family commitment for ...

1.Wearing Clothes that Covering the Aurat. cover the aurat is an absolute requirement that must be met before a woman out of the house or working at the office. Because Allah Almighty has said unequivocally in the Quran: "O Prophet, tell your wives and your daughters and the women of the believers to bring down over themselves [part] of their outer garments....

A man can see any part of his wife, yes. However, most women feel insecure about their bodies regardless of what part of the world they are from. A good husband would work on getting his wife to feel comfortable enough and at ease to want to show her body to her husband. A bad husband would get "frustrated" and start thinking of other women. "maybe her ...

In Islam, both men and women are obligated to dress modestly and protect their chastity. There is no restrictions on what they wear as long as they dress according to the principles of Islam. You won't get any extra rewards for wearing a Pakistani dress or Saudi dress. There is no distinction between cultural dresses (Afghani dresses, Pakistani dresses, ...

The hadith you are referring to is a da'īf (weak) hadith mawqūf, which means that the narration (hadith) is attributed to a companion, not to the Prophet ﷺ (mawqūf). In our case here, the narration you are asking about is attributed to 'Abdullah ibn 'Abbas (others have narrated this hadith, too). This hadith is documented in multiple books, for example in ...

Those Ayat are talking about the exterior appearance of Muslim Women. They have never to show any of their body except their faces and hands. This is the general meaning of the Aya in addition in the beginning of the Aya ALLAH asked Muslim women. In the ALamthal Sheikh Naser Makarem Deen Slhirazi explain this: : (وليضربن بخمرهن على جيوبهن) وكلمة "خُمُر"...

جيب (plural جيوب, translated here as "bosoms"), literally refers to the opening in a shirt where the head and neck emerge in classical Arabic (its meaning can then be extended to refer to the bosom — or even the heart — directly). According to Tafsir Ibn Kathir, the command in this ayah refers to the neck and the chest, or the neck and the ribs. ...

All perfect praise be to Allah My answer doesnot contain any suggestions. I will try just to cover OTHER side. So, it all depends on your culture and where you are living, because if i recommend clothes of my country you might not even know their names. Even if you find them and wear them, people will see you as SOME NEW THING. So, any cloth you choose ...

Yes, awrah for men should be covered. The same rules apply (loose, opaque, non-conforming to other religions e.g. a t-shirt with a cross on it isn't acceptable). A combination of bias and ignorance are possible reasons for why this isn't happening. I haven't heard people complain about football uniforms even though they clearly violate these guidelines. ...

Man the question you asked might just start a super fest and every brother or sister is going to start shooting answers to your question from everywhere. In simple sense, Islam as a religion is a matter of simplicity and submission to Allah and how he has asked to go about most of our lives and that is to worship him as the one true god. Having said this ...

In practice, in almost all Muslim majority countries of the world, Muslim women do appear on television in various roles ranging from characters in dramas and commercials, as news anchors and even as religious scholars. I guess the question ultimately boils down to whether or not women can be seen in public and participate in public life. There is a ...

No matter what a woman wears, it's never good enough for men. Man X says "women should wear [something]" and Man Y says "women should wear [something else]"---both state their opinion with complete certainty. We can't make everyone happy. What it says in the Qur'an and Hadith, what scholars say, what the local imam says, and what everyday men say are all ...

Your question talks about an unknown future based on assumptions. I would start with referring to the below Hadith: It was narrated that Abu Hurairah said: "The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said: 'The strong believer is better and more beloved to Allah than the weak believer, although both are good. Strive for that which will benefit you, seek the help ...

First of all , Islam wasn't as binary in its arrival as some people think , it took a long time for people to abandon their pre-Islamic habits , it didn't happen overnight , the female dress was one of them . Now , there existed some references to Arab women's outfits in the pre-Islamic era which , obviously , continued to be the outfit of non-Muslims in the ...

Provided you are not alone with them then it is permitted for you to sit with your sisters in law if they are wearing a headscarf and dressed modestly. But you should guard against sin and lower your gaze, especially if you are attracted to one of them. Modesty falls equally on men and women and you must observe hijab. If you are unable to resist ...

If there is not any kind of fitna and a good intention, there is nothing wrong to look into a face of a woman in public place such as hospital, if it is necessarily and short. But it is better not to look at all as it might create an uncomfortable situation. It is better always to lower your gaze. There is a hadith which is telling that a woman should be ...

There isn't any religious obligation on children to observe hijab: رفع القلم عن ثلاث عن النائم حتى يستيقظ وعن الصغير حتى يكبر وعن المجنون حتى يعقل أو يفيق The pen has been lifted from three: From the sleeper until he wakes up, from the minor until he grows up, and from the insane until he comes back to his senses or recovers. ― Nisai, Abu Daud, ...

Theoretically this is no different from everyday co-existing, but in water instead of air. As usual, both men and women would need to cover their awrah. However, it's practically problematic to do so. The main issues described by fatawa (below) are "temptation" and "uncovered awrah". I asked about the women's swimwear here: What should a Muslim woman ...

Common sense and a clear understanding of the Quran should guide you in this case. There is no prohibition in the Quran for such interactions. And a quick glance at actual functioning Muslim societies reveals male shopkeepers or produce sellers interacting with housewives and exchanging money and goods. Extreme segregation can almost cripple a society and ...

The reasons given in the Qur'an for hijab: O Prophet, tell your wives and your daughters and the women of the believers to bring down over themselves [part] of their outer garments. That is more suitable that they will be known and not be abused. And ever is Allah Forgiving and Merciful. -- Qur'an 33:59 And tell the believing women to reduce [some] ...

I think the problem is we don't take it as obligation by Islam but just as an identity to be seen as Muslim - We don't read Quran, we don't study Hadith we just want to be doing what we are doing - we don't try to be a better Muslim each day - we just want to be where we are as long as we are happy

It's a good question and one stimulating to my interest in comprehensive and holistic treatments of Islamic doctrine based on philosophical insights. So prepare yourself for a substantial intellectual ride! But before setting off, here's the short answer: In Islam, hijab has always been obligatory. From an intellectual perspective, full, integral ...

Obviously some cultural dress is designed for the climate of that country e.g. Shalwar kameez of Pakistan/India is thin (but not see through to avoid breaking one of the conditions of hijaab) and loose so is suitable for hot climate as well as covering the flesh. Of course a non Muslim would wear less clothing and expose more body in hot weather whereas we ...

Islam provides us the best and most effective solutions while trying to convince others about the truth. Invite to the way of your Lord with wisdom and good instruction, and argue with them in a way that is best. Indeed, your Lord is most knowing of who has strayed from His way, and He is most knowing of who is [rightly] guided. [Qur'an: 16:125] This ...
