Muslim Women/girl wearing PANTS and JEANS :: Women in Islam

Posted on: February 8, 2010

Are women allowed to wear pants in Islam.

If not Why.?

Praise be to Allah.

Muslim woman have to wear clothes that will conceal the body and her ‘awrah, by wearing clothes that do not show the skin, as see-though clothes do, and do not show the shape of the body, as tight clothes do. Pants or trousers are clothes that show the shape of a woman’s body and ‘awrah, so for this reason it is not permissible for women to wear pants, unless she wears over them a wide or loose shirt.

One of the aims of Islam is protect people’s ‘awrahs and avoid uncovering them, because taking this matter lightly is one of the means of falling into that which Allah has forbidden, namely zina (fornication, adultery) and the things that lead to it.

The Muslim woman has to adhere to the Islamic etiquette in the way she dresses, moves and speaks.

Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):

“O Prophet! Tell your wives and your daughters and the women of the believers to draw their cloaks (veils) all over their bodies”

[al-Ahzaab 33:59]

“And tell the believing women to lower their gaze (from looking at forbidden things), and protect their private parts (from illegal sexual acts) and not to show off their adornment except only that which is apparent (like both eyes for necessity to see the way, or outer palms of hands or one eye or dress like veil, gloves, headcover, apron), and to draw their veils all over Juyoobihinna (i.e. their bodies, faces, necks and bosoms) and not to reveal their adornment … And let them not stamp their feet so as to reveal what they hide of their adornment. And all of you beg Allaah to forgive you all, O believers, that you may be successful”

[al-Noor 24:31]

And Allah knows best.

Are Women allowed to wear Jeans??

Praise be to Allah.

Shaykh ‘Abd-Allaah ibn ‘Abd al-Rahmaan al-Jibreen (may Allaah preserve him) was asked about the ruling on women wearing jeans. He replied:

As for women wearing pants or trousers, this is not permitted, even if she is on her own or in front of other women or her husband, except if she is in a closed room with her husband only. Apart from that, it is not permitted because it shows the details of her body and makes her get used to these clothes. So she is not permitted to wear these clothes at all.” (al-Nukhbah min al-Fataawaa al-Nisaa’iyyah, p. 30).

Shaykh Muhammad ibn Saalih ibn ‘Uthaymeen was also asked about the ruling on women wearing any kind of pants or trousers. He (may Allaah preserve him) answered:

I think that women should not wear trousers at all, even if there is no one with her apart from her husband, because this is imitating men. The ones who wear trousers are men, and the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) cursed women who imitate men.

Majmoo’ Fataawaa wa Rasaa’il al-Shaykh Muhammad ibn Saalih al-‘Uthaymeen, part 12, p. 287

Salamalaykum… My wife to be parents refuse to support the relationship between they daughter and I. Because I am a Yoruba (Nigeria) not Hausa (Nigeria) and Fatima and I are set for Nikkah. We met defferent people on this issue, but no solution. Please what should we do. Masalaam!


Nobody thought about the woman living in a very cold climate like Chicago ILL USA. I wear pants in the wint time and I ski looking for more proof from the quaran. All I get out of the versus is a woman must cover her boobs. I’m a new Muslim please help me to understand. Yes I wear the hijab I wear the long hijab.


The mother of All MOMINEEN Aisha R.A said after sometime to the death of Prophet P.B.U.H “That if the prophet was alive he would n0t allow w0men t0 c0me t0 m0sques due to their unrevieling clothes i.e 1400 years ago and what now a days my Muslim sisters are wearing dont know where they are going to stand on the day of judgment ! May ALLAH give hidayah to each and every body.


just follow as written in Quran and Sunnah!and stop these discriminations bcz u must know what is right or wrong


Alhamdulahi Allah is the greatest the maciful and the most high but wat about u are at h0me and u wear trouser that c0ver u leg and put on a l0ng shet


Follow the path described in quran and hadith completely. Its interpretation is absolute one. Don’t interpret it a way which suits you.


Ooh, we have lost our moral values.
We forgot that what is Haya and Veil.


It’s easy enough for a man to say. I pray, I fast, and I keep away from bad influences and boys. But I wear trousers, so does that mean that I’m more likely going to hell. It’s about opinion. Men in the middle East wear garments resembling dresses. Does that mean that they are acting like women? Why do men always complain about women and say that the things they do are immoral or haraam. Why is it that men are never the ones in the wrong? Why are you even arguing over women wearing trousers? It’s such a petty issue (which isn’t even a sin) when there are far worse things going on in the world?


Good point. It said in quran they wil be time when women comes to highest in all level that those day the last day of jugemnet is near,Accoding to the rule of islam try to wear loose dress , even men are not allowed to wear tight dress, prohet PBUh also weared loose dress, show we should stick to the isalmic principle


masallah u said very well may allah giv u place in jannah A strong Muslim has a solidly grounded faith, which gives him and the people around him inner and outer strength. If you follow these steps outlined below, you will be well on your way on becoming a true Muslim and the love of God.


What? Khadija you cannot just say “Allah has already made it clear”. Where is it seen that Allah has made it clear that women cannot wear pants or the like? Allah has only forbidden us to imitate the opposite sex, and pants are definitely not men’s clothes, just like dress-like clothes are not only women’s clothes. A man can wear clothes that would look like a woman’s dress(like the ones middleeastern men wear, i don’t know what you call it in arabic). And Allah has told us to always seek knowledge, so you can’t just say “it’s all made clear” even if you believe it’s Allah’s words, you have to find proof it is clear and true, see with your own eyes, because there are lots of so-called Muslims who just show off Islam as a religion of prohibitions.


den in that way wearin loose n long tops ova pants in front of women and husbands in allowed in islam ????


Oh God, you know that what you’re doing is haraam right? It says “(…) and not show their adornment except that which is apparent” and you have translated ‘apparent’ with a number of things that would never ever be attached to the word apparent, no matter what the context is. It is so obvious that these are written by men. Allah does not want women to cover themselves up so that only eyes are visible: though you guys even want a veil before the eyes so that the woman is completely invisible. May Allah show men like you what it means to suppress His creature just because she is a woman. We were created by Allah as well as you men were.


What if the lady is not married or not engaged? Can she put on loose fiting pants?


in front of ladies or mahrams….. i think so….


you guys are just dum seriously man u guys go on forever y dont u just forget . Jeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeze!!!


Can girls pray in pants? What is the clothing that is prescribed in Shari’ah for praying?

Praise be to Allah.
The clothing that is prescribed for women to pray in is any clothing that covers her entire body apart from the face and hands; it should be loose and opaque, so that it does not show the shape of any part of her body.

The Hadith in reference is:
“She should pray in a khimaar (head cover) and a long chemise that covers the tops of her feet.” [Abu Dawud]

The evidence that the garment should be loose and opaque is the hadeeth of Usaamah ibn Zayd (may Allah be pleased with him) who said: the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) gave me a qubti garment from the gifts that Dihyah al-Kalbi had given to him, and I gave it to my wife to wear. The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: “Why are you not wearing the qubti garment?” I said: “I gave it to my wife to wear.” He said: “Tell her to put a ghalaalah underneath it for I fear that it will show the size of her bones.”

The qubti garment is a garment made of thin white linen that was made in Egypt.

The ghalaalah is a kind of slip or undergarment.

Based on this, it is not permissible for a woman to wear tight clothes that show her ‘awrah, such as pants or trousers.

Shaykh Saalih al-Fawzaan said:
It is not permissible to wear tight clothes which show the limbs and the shape of a woman’s body. Tight clothes are not permissible for men or women, but it is especially forbidden for women, because the fitnah in their case is greater.

With regard to praying in particular, if a person prays with his ‘awrah covered in such clothes, his prayer is valid in an of itself, because the ‘awrah is covered, but he is sinning by praying in tight clothes, because he has transgressed one of the rules of prayer by wearing tight clothes. This is one aspect. Another aspect is that it is a cause of temptation and draws attention, especially in the case of women. So women should cover themselves with loose garments which will cover them and not show any of the limbs of their body or attract attention. So it should not be a thin or see-through garment, rather it should be a concealing garment which will cover the woman completely. End quote.

And Allah knows best
