Adh-Dhahabee’s Advice To Women (And Their Husbands)

Imaam Adh-Dhahabee said:

If a woman wears the clothing of a man and it is tight on her such as around her body like that of some of men’s clothes, like tight sleeves, tight private regions and so forth, (then) indeed she has imitated him and she has brought the curse of Allaah upon herself (1).

If her husband does not prevent her from doing so, or is pleased with what she is doing, he has indeed shared in that curse, (as he has) aided her in such a sin and he will be sinning with her which is the opposite of what Allaah has ordered him to do. That is to have Taqwaa and he has also bee ordered to save himself and his family form the Hell-Fire, as Allaah The Exalted says in the Quraan:

O you who believe, ward off from yourselves and your families against a fire whose fuel is mankind and stones.” [66:6]

(1) Ibn Abbaas said, “The Messenger of Allaah cursed those men who imitate women, and cursed women who imitate men.” [Bukhaaree]

The Ruling Of The Prayer In Which Tight Fitted Clothing Is Worn, By Shaykh Al-Albaani

Umm Ayyoob said:

‘This question was put to the Shaykh: Is it permissible for the woman to pray in tight fitted clothing?

The Shaykh -Rahimullaah- answered saying:

‘If the intent by the word ‘permissible’ you mean is the prayer accepted? Then apparently the prayer is accepted. And if the intent of the word ‘permissible’ you mean that it is no problem for her to pray like that, then that is a problem, because as you know that from the conditions of dress by which one must cover the ‘Awraah (the private area) regarding a man let alone women that it should not show the size of the ‘Awraah.

However, we do not have any evidence to say that prayer in this condition is invalid.  But there is no doubt that with the second meaning that it would be okay for her to pray wearing tight fitted clothing, then this is not allowed, as for the prayer then it is accepted.’

Then the Shaykh -Rahimullaah- added by saying:

‘It is necessary that she wears above her clothing the like of an ‘Abayyaa, wrapping sheet worn for prayer and things similar to that.’
