Our second question of tonight is by Lena. And Lena asks,

00:00:11--> 00:01:14

a question that is often asked by young girls, young women, she says, can I? Can I welcome my girlfriend's while I'm wearing a dress, which is covering my knees. And under it, I have tights. Now, in so many places, a lot of those who listen to such a question would be astonished. Why is she asking such a question? Well, I'll tell you why. The question is posed by someone who is either practicing Islam properly or living in a household of people who are practicing Islam. So most likely, maybe Lina is a practicing woman, or a girl or her parents are. And in so many places, we have this in our homes as well. There is this feud between the teenagers between the youngsters and

00:01:14--> 00:01:36

their tendency to rebel against the traditions against what is the norm, and they would argue and debate about issues without any knowledge, because simply they are following their own whims and desires. And this is the simplest way of putting it.

00:01:37--> 00:01:44

Lina is asking about the ruling on weight wearing a skirt that covers the knees.

00:01:45--> 00:01:50

So we know that a man's our

00:01:51--> 00:02:51

is from the belly button to the knees. But for a girl or a woman, it is a bit beyond that. So it should be to the middle of the leg, as scholars say. Likewise, when it comes to the shoulders, she should not have bare shoulders, she should at least cover her middle of the biceps. And the scholars provided evidence is backing this up, that she should not wear things that women do not usually wear their jewelry. And so the limit is where you wear your jewelry in. So this area is okay. They're showing exposing the cleavage is not the shoulders they used to wear bans on the biceps and jewelry. This is permissible beyond that, above that is not likewise with the legs. When a woman wears

00:02:53--> 00:03:38

a skirt that reaches to the middle of the leg, this is okay. But if it is close to the knees, if she bends over, or if she sits, the skirt would go up and expose some of her thigh or the knees and this would become prohibited and not appropriate. Therefore, Lina, I would advise you to set a trend for yourself to please Allah, and not to please your girlfriend's not to please your peers not to please those who are around you. Because it is inappropriate that we become like sheep in

00:03:39--> 00:04:35

a herd just following the leader. Whenever whenever they do we do it. And this is the case with fashion. When they used to wear many skirts. Everybody wore miniskirts, when they decided to wear long dresses. Everybody started doing this. The hippies when they had beards, everyone thought that was cool. And when people shave their beards, then this is the trend again, a Muslim is not like this. A Muslim a proper Muslim has rules and regulations. He abides by whatever a law ordered him to do. And whatever the Prophet sallallahu wasallam instructs him to do. That's why he's Muslim, a person who submits his will to Allah azza wa jal, so it's not what I say or what x y Zed says. It is

00:04:35--> 00:04:57

what Allah azza wa jal commands us with. It is what the prophet is recommended this off, and what the scholars of Islam whom we trust and believe in came to understand from the Quran and from the stringer and gave us the verdict. So basically speaking, there is nothing wrong in what you are wearing.

00:04:58--> 00:05:00

Lena however,

00:05:00--> 00:05:20

If you know that by bending over the back of your thighs to the middle of your thigh would be exposed or when you sit it the skirt would go above your knees then it is not permissible to wear it in this case and a large nose best
