Dress

Wemen

  • Must cover the entire body except hands and face. Covering the face with a Niqab is optional and perhaps even preferred.
  • Must wear a khimar that covers the head, neck and bosom.
  • Should wear a jilbab that enshrouds the entire body and covers any open spots.
  • Clothing must not be tight or transparent. Wearing such clothing defeats the purpose of covering the body.
  • Women must wear hijab in front of all non-Mahram men.

Men

  • Must cover their awrah (from the navel to the knee) in front of all unrelated women.
  • Must not wear gold or silk or any effeminate clothing.
  • Should keep their lower garment above the ankles
