Salwar khameez

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Muftisays.com
is it permissable to wear a salawar khemeez for sisters as the the bottoms as you know seem to me to resemble trousers of men
is it permissable to wear such clothing for muslim women?

Answer
Bismillah

Al-jawab billahi at-taufeeq (the answer with Allah’s guidance)

Wearing the shalwar kamees, if it fulfills the requirements of covering the `Awrah, then it is acceptable; otherwise, it is not. Any substance that conceals the colour of the `awrah under normal light is acceptable.

So therefore wearing the shalwar kamees outdoors is totally prohibited. Wearing it underneath the Hijab/Niqab is permissible.

As for propriety and dignity, at home women should dress in a modest manner, preferring loose unrevealing clothing.

It must be remembered that to wear the Hijab/ Niqab outdoors is compulsory and indoors if there are Ghair Mahram men (those whom you can marry) present.
