In fatwa # 15856, u have mentioned about ladies not permissible of wearing attractive or shining garments in public.I need to know whether by public u meant gatherings of men and women or women alone.
In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
Assalaamu `alaykum waRahmatullahi Wabarakatoh
It is permissible for women to wear attractive clothing in an only women gathering. However, when she leaves home or the women’s gathering, she should cover herself with a simple outer garment (jilbaab) and she should also cover her face. The purpose of covering herself and her face is to conceal her beauty, form and shape.
