Strict veil

salam,i have a difficult question that has been troubling me for quite some time,i would be more then gratefull if you could help me???? i have been in full veil since the age of 13,.i am now 27,i have therefore been doing strict veil from all gaar mehrims(al hamdo-lilah)untill 1 year ago,last year my brother inlaw came in the uk,and had been living at my house for some time,i could not do veil from him as my husband did not approve of this and said he has no family accept us,so i did not do veil from him,even though my family was clearly against this.i found t his very difficult,but my inlaws would allways tell me that i was wrong to do strict veil with there own family members,as they do not understand in strict veil.they found it very bad that i did not talk with my brother inlaw for a long time,i then promised myself that inshallah the day my brother inlaw gets married i will start purdah with him as he will not be needing much help,when one has a partner.but just recently he got married with my own sister that is becoming an alima,and she is doing full veil from the family male members including my husband.this has become even hard on me as i wanted to do strict veil form my brother inlaw,but now he has become more close,i have asked my inlaws if i can do veil,and they disagree,please tell me what would be best,to make my allah happy or my inlaws???? jazakallah

Eyeliner (kohl)

alsalamo alaykoom,
is it ok for girls/women to wear eyeliner/kohl in public?
20th January 2008



I have a maslah that i need answering to..my monthly haidh starts at the end of evry month but a month ago my haidh started ten dyas before my usual habit, i assumed that this is my new habit and did not pray for the whole ten days. After ten days passed my haidh did not stop and instead carried on for another ten days..the second set of ten days being falling at the end of the month. My opinion is that these last ten days was my proper haidh as it usually is, whilst the ten days in the middle which i thought was my new habit was not haidh and in fact was istihadah..as i was unaware and made a mistake as something like this had never happened before..do i need to make up for the ten days of salaah that i didnt pray??

jazakallah..plaese let me know ASAP

Permissibility of Wearing Cardigans / Coats for Women - Purdah Issue

Assalamu ALaykum,

The Ulama say that women shouldn't wear clothes that stick to them (since they reveal the figure) but does that include cardigans and coats because you can see the shape of the arm and the body too at time.

What's the ruling for that? Is it best to wear it underneath the jabba?


This question might help you understand my question: http://qa.muftisays.com/index.php?viewpage=viewQA&question=962

Holding and reciting from a book/kithaab containing quraaninc ayaahs

During my menstrual cycles i read a collection of quraanic ayaahs compiled into one book/kithaab as Duah or Zikr and NOT as Tilawat.
I wanted to clearify the following:-
1) Is it permisable for me to hold this khitaab while reading bearing in mind i am in Haid.
2) Is there any ruling i should make wuduh before reading this kithaab.

The kithaab that i read is called My Companian compiled by Al Islaah Publications, Kroonstad, South Africa.
This book emphasises that i am permissable to do as i asked you in my question but i still want to get as many opinions as possible.

JazakAllah Khair

Womens clothing and eyebrows


i would like to ask a few questions and i will be greatful if both can be answered

1) Are woman allowed to wear jeans with a kurta / kameez which is upto the knees or longer?

2)i feel i am not ready to wear a burkha yet.. though my parents think of me as a very bad girl because i do not do so .. however truthfully i wear long clothes.. covering all my body parts and not too revealing or short either..i also wear a scarf. my coat is also long.. i feel very hurt so please tell me if you think im bad.

3) Is it allowed to clean up the eyebrows??.. only clean up NOT shape them? because the eyebrows both side were slightly deformed after an eye operation.. the sticky pad made it messy

jazakallah for your help
