بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

We begin with Allah’s blessed name, we praise him and we glorify him, seek his forgiveness and ask him to guide us. Whoever Allah guides, None can lead astray and whoever he misguides, None can guide. There is no power and no strength except from Allah, The most high, the Most great, the most powerful. We bear witness that there is no one worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers. We pray for peace and blessings on all the noble messengers and in particular on the last of them all “the blessed prophet Mohammad (pbuh)”

The major criterias for the dress of a muslim women are:
  1. Clothes worn should not announce arrogance.
  2. Her 'satr' must be covered.
  3. She should not wear tight clothes which display her body curves and figure.
  4. The clothes she wears should not be an imitation of the disbelievers.
  5. She should not wear the dress of men.
  6. She should not wear transparent clothes.
  7. The only parts that can be visible are HANDS, FEET and FACE.
If none of the above restrictions is violated in a dress, then there is absolutely no harm in wearing such a dress.

i want to ask if its okay to dress modern & modest and i mean being completely covered but still look stylish and normal ?

Your Lord has enjoined the following: You should not worship anyone but Him Alone! Treat your parents with great kindness; if either or both of them attain old age, do not even say ‘uff’ to them; nor rebuke them; but speak to them kind words. Treat them with humility and tenderness and pray, “O our Lord, be merciful to them, just as they brought me up with kindness and affection in my childhood.” Quran[17:23-24]

Narrated by Mu'awiyah ibn Hayadah I asked: ‘O Messenger of Allah(saws)! To whom should I show kindness most?’ He (saws) replied: ‘Your mother.’ I asked (again): ‘Who next?’. He (saws) replied: ‘Your mother!’. I asked: ‘Who next?’ He (saws) replied: ‘Your mother!’ I asked again: ‘Who next?’ and he (saws) replied: ‘Your father, and then your relatives in order of relationship.’ Sahih Muslim[Muslim :: Book 32 : Hadith 6180] / abu dawood[Dawud :: Book 41 : Hadith 5120]

Narrated by Aisha The Prophet (saws) said: "The word 'Ar-Rahm' (womb) derives its name from 'Ar-Rahman' (i.e. Allah). So whosoever keeps good relations with it (womb i.e. kith and kin), Allah will keep good relations with him, and whosoever will sever it (i.e. severs his bonds of kith and kin) Allah too will sever His relations with him!" Sahih Al-Bukhari [Volume 8, Book 73, Number 18]

Narrated by Abu Bakra Allah's Messenger (saws) said, "Shall I inform you of the biggest of the Great Sins?" They said, "Yes, O Allah's Messenger (saws)!" He (saws) said, "To join partners in worship with Allah, and to be undutiful to one's parents." Sahih Al-Bukhari [Volume 8, Book 74, Number 290]

Abdullah bin Amr narrated that: the Prophet said: "The Lord's pleasure is in the parent's pleasure, and the Lord's anger is in the parent's anger."(Hasan). Tirmidhi [Vol. 4, Book 1, Hadith 1899 / Arabic reference: Book 27, Hadith 2020]

dear sister, you should listen and obey your mother, because the biggest rights After the rights due to Allah and His Messenger (pbuh), are due to one’s parents. being undutiful to one’s parents is the second mountanious sin after shirk.

If your dress does not voilate any of the above condition and still your mother disallow you to wear such dress, you can make efforts to convince her with humbleness, but if after all your efforts, your mother did not agree, in such a case you should obey your mother.

Abdullah bin Amr narrated that: the Prophet said: "The Lord's pleasure is in the parent's pleasure, and the Lord's anger is in the parent's anger."(Hasan). Tirmidhi [Vol. 4, Book 1, Hadith 1899 / Arabic reference: Book 27, Hadith 2020]

In conclusion: There is absolutely no harm if one wishes to wears tranies with abayas, skirts with shirts, as long as none of the above conditions is violated. And Allah alone knows the best.

I ask Allah to make this a sincere effort, seeking his pleasure, and I ask him to grant us refuge in him from the evils within ourselves, and that in our deeds. I ask him to grant us success in achieving whatever pleases him; And May Allah Shower His blessings and mercy upon our beloved Prophet Muhammad (pbuh), his family and his Companions and on all those who follow him until the final hour.
