Wearing a shawl

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: I want to know, if it is possible, if you can share any hadeeth that prove the wearing of a shawl and if possible Insha Allah what was the Sunnah way of wearing a shawl?


A: Wearing of a shawl and izaar was the style of the sahaabah and Nabi (sallallahu alaihi wa sallam). Look at Shamaa’il-e-Tirmizi, Abu Dawood, etc.

If the shawl is long enough the shawl should be tied in a way that both the ends are on the shoulders.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
