Assalamalaikum,pls can a lady wear a sleeveless cloth or one which is above the knee at home


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)”

At the time of the prophet (PBUH) women flock were covering everything from the heel of the foot up to the palm of the hand when inside their houses. Women have to fear Allah and feel that sense of modesty which is part of the nature of women and which is part of faith. For women, it is prescribed to cover everything from heel to palm, but in times of necessity she may pull her dress up to knees or she may roll up her sleeves to the upper arms in front of a Mehram. But it should not be her usual dress.

Thus, The absolute minimum women should cover in the company of women or Mehram is from the beginning of her breasts to her knees inclusive. 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.
