Awrah of transgenders

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Fatwaa.com

Should I treat the awrah of a man who claims to be a women, now has breasts and dresses in female clothing as that of a women or does it remain that of a man’s. Also vice versa if a women claiming to be a man.


Wa’alaykum as Salam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu,

Regarding the transgender, his ‘Awrah remains as the normal ‘Awrah of a male.

Regarding others, they should not look at his breasts. If they get sexual inclinations when looking at him, then they cannot look at him at all.

Likewise, the ‘Awrah of the female also remains the same.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best
