Being a Muslim Woman, how must they wear their attire to say that she is a Muslim woman?

Muslim Dress


Scholars have specified the requirements of the Muslim woman's proper dress before al-ajaanib (lit. foreigners, i.e., those to whom marriage is permissible) from both the Glorious Qur'an and the sunnah. Once a woman adheres to such conditions, she can wear whatever she likes and go out into public places so far as her hijab complies with Islamic law. A summary of the requirements are as follows:

  1. 1: It should cover the whole body.
  1. 2: It should be thick enough, i.e. non-transparent or translucent.
  1. 3: It should be loose and not tight on her body.
  1. 4: It should not be decorated or ornate such as to attract onlookers.
  1. 5: It should not be perfumed.
  1. 6: It should not be considered libaas al-shuhrah.
  1. 7: It should not resemble the dress of men.
  1. 8: It should not resemble the dress of the unbelievers.
  1. 9: It should not bear crosses or depictions of anything with a soul (humans, animals, etc).

This is a summary of the requirements according to the Islamic shari'ah.

Christmas and Muslims

  To a Muslim living in the West, the Christmas Holiday period is one of the most stressful times because of the differences in our attitudes towards holidays and celebrations of the status quo. Even in Islamic countries, there can be misunderstandings on these issues with our Christian colleagues. The following essay is my personal attempt at bridging this gap to promote an understanding of the Islamic perspective regarding this topic. The word Christmas comes from the Old English term Cristes maesse, meaning "Christ's mass." This was the name for the festival service of worship held on December 25th to commemorate the birth of Jesus, may Allah exalt his mention. There is neither certain information on the date of his birth nor even on the year. One reason for this uncertainty is that the stories of his birth, recorded in the New Testament books of Matthew and Luke, were written several decades after the event. Those who wrote it gave no specific dates for the events the
