Dear scholars, As-Salamu `alaykum. Is it enough for a female to wear loose skirts or trousers and knee-length, long-sleeved shirts with a hijab that comes down over the shoulders and chest? Or must an `abaya or jilbab be worn over it? I am a student who is currently on holiday and I wore `abayas all through this Ramadan, as I don't know what the correct dress is. But I will soon be going back to college and I think it will be difficult for me to go around in `abayas all the time. Please clarify this issue for me as soon as possible.
Dear scholars, As-Salamu `alaykum. My relative has recently passed away. My question is this: What is his widow supposed to do? We have been told that for four months and ten days, she must wear white clothing and also that she must not put any oil in her hair. Is this an obligation under Islamic law? Jazakum Allah khayran.
