Is It Permissible for a Bride To Have a Trail on Her Dress?

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by DarulIftaBirmingham

Answered by: Shaykh Ahmed bin Mohamed Umarji


Is it permissible for a bride to have a trail on her dress? Or would that be under the prohibited isbaal?

In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful


There are narrations that prohibit Isball. Narrated Abu Huraira: The Prophet (ﷺ) said, “The part of an Izar which hangs below the ankles is in the Fire.”1 However the prohibition is specific to males. Mulla Ali Al Qaree states: “There is the consensus of the permissibility of Isbaal for Women”.2 Thus the use of such a dress is permissible.

Only Allah knows best
