Women dress code
As-Salamu `alaykum! Is it haram for a Muslim woman to wear pants or trousers? Is it haram for a Muslim woman to go shopping or to pay visits without being accompanied by a mahram (i.e., alone)? Is it haram for a Muslim woman to join men on food or sit with them even if she is wearing full Hijab?
Dear scholars, As-Salamu `alaykum. I have been wearing hijab for five years. It was my choice, but my confidence and self esteem have been entirely shattered because of it. I am enraged at the fact that the scholars (mainly men) have been threatening Muslim women into believing that Allah has ordered them to cover their hair. The truth is that these scholars (mostly men) have decided that women must cover their hair in order to divert the desires of men, labeling such a ruling as a commandment of Allah. In Qur'anic verses Allah specifically tells women to cover their bosoms. Did Allah forget to mention hair? Jazakum Allah khayran.
Dear scholars, As-Salamu `alaykum. My only question is this: Is it necessary for a Muslim woman to wear black?
Dear scholars, as-Salamu `alaykum. My question is: Is it really the responsibility of the husband to decide what his wife wears? Is he to decide whether or not she wears a one piece coat or a long jacket and a long skirt (two pieces) as well as deciding on its color and style, along with the color and style of the hijab? Can you give me an idea about the manner of dress of the Prophet's wives (peace and blessings be upon him) because as an active Muslim women in da'wah I feel that wearing the one piece coat will be perceived by non-Muslims like wearing a winter's coat. Am I right? Jazakum Allah khayran.
<![CDATA[Respected scholars, as-salamu `alaykum. What is the ruling on women wearing perfume and being around men? The hadith says that such women are adulteresses. Does this mean that such women are committing fornication or adultery or just tempting men? Jazakum Allahu Khayran.
