Women wearing pants and shirt

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: Does Islaam allow women to wear pants and shirt? If not, then can we wear it in front of our husbands? How about our blood-related sisters or female cousins? Also, are there any type of clothes wives can’t wear in front of their husbands or can we wear all types of clothes?


A: Women should wear feminine clothing. Feminine clothing refers to clothing of good respectable women.

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