Assalamu Alaykum. (Hanafi Fiqh) I have a few questions about the awrah of a women. At home, if a woman covers her awrah infront of her mahrams yet the clothes aren’t loose and show shape, would that be a sin? I have heard it may be Makruh. Also, is seeing between the navel and knees of another women (clothed yet tight) a sin? Jazakallah may Allah bless you.

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

الجواب حامداومصليا

It is not allowed for a woman to wear such clothes in front of their Mahram. They should wear loose and unrevealing clothing at home.

It is Haram and sinful to see strange women wearing such clothing, one should lower their gazes.

“Tell the believing men that they must lower their gazes and guard their private parts; it is more decent for them. Surely Allah is All-Aware of what they do…..” (Nur:29)

And Allah knows best
