Q: I would like to know if it’s ok for my wife to apply hennah patterns like flowers and other drawings to hands and feet. It seem to draw attention in public to her hands and feet. She wears burka and adopts proper hijab also nikaab. Some scholars said to me the patterns are not the way it was applied from the Sunnah and it will attract when its patterned. They said it was placed like a blob of it on the inner palms and not in the decorative way as we see in our present times. Please guide me.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
