Muslim Women Wearing Pants

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by DarulUloomTT.net



Assalamu Alaikum,
Someone proposed a question to me and had me thinking.

I will like to know if it is stated anywhere that muslim women are not allowed to wear pants?

To my knowledge we are allowed to wear loose pants that are not  revealing.

Jazak Allah Khair


Wa Alaikum As Salaam

Muslim women are allowed to wear loose pants that are not fitted and are not thin (in material). This, they can wear within their homes where they are seen by only the Maharim (blood relatives). If they are exiting their homes, then they should wear a top (long blouse, Qamees or gown) to cover the pants.

And Allah Knows Best
