Wearing a coloured burqah due to extreme heat

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: Alhamdulillah, by the fazl of Allah I’m doing shar’ee pardah by covering my face,wearing gloves and socks, etc. But I live in a very hot and humid place.

My question is, can I use any other coloured cloth, I mean other than black, for my burka as the black colour absorbs heat and makes it tough to carry?


A: Yes, as long as it is unattractive.

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