Clothing guidelines for females


1. All the cloth material of my clothes are such that when sunlight passes through them, or if in the light of my room itself if I stand in certain angles, in correspondence to the light the cloth becomes little transparent, and I have seen many cloth materials like this, and I think they are all like that. Please advise me if I am checking in the wrong manner?

2. Should the cloth material be so thick that you should not be able to see anything through it if you take the material in your hands and see through it by placing it in front of your eyes?

3. I want to wear dreeses as per the sunnah way, please advise me in detail how should I make my dresses stiched (for females). Should I make my nape covered by stiching a collar?

Till where should the length of the shirt go (for wearing with shalwaar)?

Can there be slits? Can it be round at the bottom? Is it enough for it to be 2 inches loose from actual measurement? 


1. Ensure you perform namaaz with a coarse cloth that is not see through.

2. Yes.

3. Yes.
Yes, it is preferable that the dress be till half the shin or lower.

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