Burqa And Niqab

Recommended Posts

Salaam :sl:

This might be a very stupid question, but I was just wondering...

 

I was looking at pictures of Islamic women in burqa and niqab, when I thought to myself: "How do they eat or drink?"

 

So everyone, how do women dressed in burqa and niqab eat or drink in public?

I'm sorry if this sounds like a dumb question! :sl:

I'm sorry, but what exactly is wajib? Lol :sl:

I have never heard of it.

 

I figured they did, but the whole point is to cover. What if someone sees their face? Another male or something?

 

I apologize, it is a dumb question. But I was just wondering! :sl:

According to most madhabs face is not Awrah and their are many daleels for this opinion , however the veil is a necessity if it comes to avoiding fitnah , but we cannot say its a Fardh or Wajib .

 

I can use the evidence of Shiekh Al Bani rah for that .

However, the Shafi`is, the Zahiris, Imam Al-Awza`ie, and Imam Malik, maintain that whole of the woman’s body is `Awrah except her face and hands.

 

However, some of the Hanbalis maintain that whole of the woman’s body is `Awrah because Imam At-Tirmidhi reported in his Hadith that the woman’s body is `Awrah (i.e. with the exception of her face and hands as daily dealing warrants uncovering them). Thus, the proponents of this opinion permitted the woman to uncover her face and hands because it is difficult for her to behave with them being covered in her daily life activities.”

 

Moreover, the eminent Muslim scholar, Sheikh Yusuf Al-Qaradawi, adds:

 

“With respect to non-Mahrem men and non-Muslim women, a woman's `Awrah is her entire body with the exception of her face and hands, according to the interpretation we have preferred.

 

We agree with Imam Al-Razi’s argument that Islam has permitted the woman to expose those parts of the body, the face and hands, which need to be exposed in order to carry out dailyand business for giving and taking; it has commanded her to cover what it is not necessary to expose, and has forgiven her accidental, inadvertent exposures or such exposures as are required by necessity. All this is in accordance with the flexibility of Islam.

 

Imam Al-Razi, states: "Since the showing of the face and hands is necessary, the jurists had no choice but to agree that they are not `Awrah, and since the showing of the feet is not necessary, they have differed concerning whether or not they are `Awrah.'' (Tafsir of Fakhr al-Deen al-Razi, vol. 20, pp. 205-206)"

 

Personally however I think if an Idividual females face causes fitnah , then she should where Hijab in full , because sometimes a sister with attractive eyes can cause Fitnah with Niqab as well .
