Suitable pajamas for females

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: Please advise: Is it permissible for woman to wear pajamas that feature:

1. Textual inscriptions

2. Non-animate images (hearts, flowers, leaves, stars, etc.)

3. Bright, feminine colours (bright pink, bright yellow, etc.)

These pajamas are long, have sleeves, and not revealing around the breast area.


A: Flowers are a better option. Hearts etc. seem to be indecent.

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