Q: I’ve come across on Muftionline that Mufti Saheb had mentioned regarding a person covering their hair during eating is something that Mufti Saheb had not come across. Is there any virtue that a woman covers her hair during eating? Anything about drawing barakah? There are quite a lot of people who say to cover the hair whilst eating. Another thing, like the above, is there any virtue in a woman covering her hair whilst sleeping?
A: It is not appropriate for women to go around the house bareheaded.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
