Q: Is it permissible for a female to swim in the beach? I keep on my scarf and abaya and make sure there is no people around.


A: It is illogical to say that there is nobody around the beach. You cannot restrict the movement of people. So how can a Muslim woman think of doing something through which her pardah etc. will be invaded.

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