Can a woman go out wearing a long shirt with pants beneath?


I know that pants are haraam. So that I will not be doing something haraam, I would like to ask: Is it permissible for me to wear pants with a long shirt that reaches mid-thigh or is that not permissible? Please note that the shirt is wide and covers my charms. When can the ruling that pants are haraam be waived?.

Shaykh Ibn ‘Uthaymeen (may Allaah have mercy on him) said:

I think that the Muslims should not follow this fashion and wear the clothes that come to us from here and there. Many of them are not compatible with the Islamic dress code which completely covers the woman, such as clothes that are short, very tight or see-through. That includes pants, which show the size of the woman’s legs, stomach and waist. Wearing them is included in the saheeh hadeeth “There are two types of the people of Hell whom I have not seen: people with whips like the tails of cattle, with which they strike the people, and women who are clothed yet naked, walking with an enticing gait, with something on their heads that looks like the humps of camels, leaning to one side. They will never enter Paradise or even smell its fragrance, although its fragrance can be detected from such and such a distance.” End quote. The hadeeth was narrated by Muslim (2128).

He also said:

What I think is that it is haraam for women to wear pants because this is an imitation of men, and the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) cursed women who imitate men. It also makes women less modest, because it opens the door to the garments of the people of Hell, as the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “two types of the people of Hell whom I have not seen” and he described them as “women who are clothed yet naked, walking with an enticing gait, with something on their heads that looks like the humps of camels, leaning to one side. They will never enter Paradise or even smell its fragrance”.

[Majmoo’ Fataawa al-Shaykh Ibn ‘Uthaymeen.]

[It says in Fataawa al-Lajnah al-Daa’imah (17/102): It is not permissible for her to wear pants, because that is women imitating men.]

 

About Umm Abdulazeez

"I am a Muslim who is upon the Qur'aan and the Sunnah and upon the methodology of the Salaf As-Saalih (Pious Predecessors). And that can be said in short by saying, 'I am a Salafee' " [Shaykh Al-Albaanee رحمه الله] ________ Sufyaan Ath-Thawree (rahimahullaah) said: “Indeed knowledge should only be learned for the purpose of fearing Allaah. Indeed, knowledge has been given virtue over other than it because with it Allaah is feared.” [Jaam'i Bayaan al-'Ilm wa Fadlihi by Imaam Ibn Abdil-Barr (rahimahullaah)]
