Women wearing tops and trousers

By Mufti Shafiq Jakura

Q.) Is it permissible for women to wear tops and trousers under their burqa? Also what’s the fatwa regarding women wearing jeans?


A.) Wearing tops and trousers or jeans within the confines of one's home or beneath the burqah cannot be deemed to be prohibited. However, the clothing should be modest and loose fitting even within one's home, especially when there are children in the home.

One should bear in mind that the effects of one's clothing generally display on one's behavior. Hence, although such clothing, when worn within the confines of hijab and pardah (i.e. beneath the burqah or within the home), cannot be deemed to be absolutely prohibited, it is certainly not the attire of the pious and the righteous. Rather, it is generally the attire of those disobedient to Allah (SWT), and hence, emulating them must be avoided.

And Allah Ta'ala Knows Best.
