How much of a woman’s body should be covered

Q: What amount of a woman is fardh for her to cover in Islam? What amount of her is best to cover?


A: It is compulsory for a woman to cover her entire body (with the exception of her hands till her wrists and her feet) before na mahrams.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
