Removing of Hijaab in France

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Mahmoodiyah



I wanted to ask a question about Purdah in France

Are you on the opinion that a women should take out her Purdah and suffice on a scarf in a country like France where Purdah is not common , or must she be stead fast ?

Knowing the fact that she’s not attacking physically, “just” verbally” sometimes

Can we say that the law of Allah can change according to the country?

Jazakallah for taking time





We are not of the opinion that the women in France should discard the Hijaab due to the verbal abuse.  A female must cover herself from head to toe, including the face, from non-Mahram men because the Fitnah in a non-Muslim country is very great.  She must be steadfast on her Deen and always think back to the persecutions that Nabi (S.A.W.), the Sahabah and Sahaabiyyaat underwent for this Deen.  It will Insha-Allah be a form of consolation and Allah Ta’ala will Insha-Allah reward her for her steadfastness on her Deen in these trying times.

And Allah Ta’ala knows best
