Surah No. 24, An Noor, Ayat No. 31



وَقُل لِّلْمُؤْمِنَاتِ يَغْضُضْنَ مِنْ أَبْصَارِهِنَّ وَيَحْفَظْنَ فُرُوجَهُنَّ وَلَا يُبْدِينَ زِينَتَهُنَّ إِلَّا مَا ظَهَرَ مِنْهَا وَلْيَضْرِبْنَ بِخُمُرِهِنَّ عَلَى جُيُوبِهِنَّ وَلَا يُبْدِينَ زِينَتَهُنَّ إِلَّا لِبُعُولَتِهِنَّ أَوْ آبَائِهِنَّ أَوْ آبَاء بُعُولَتِهِنَّ أَوْ أَبْنَائِهِنَّ أَوْ أَبْنَاء بُعُولَتِهِنَّ أَوْ إِخْوَانِهِنَّ أَوْ بَنِي إِخْوَانِهِنَّ أَوْ بَنِي أَخَوَاتِهِنَّ أَوْ نِسَائِهِنَّ أَوْ مَا مَلَكَتْ أَيْمَانُهُنَّ أَوِ التَّابِعِينَ غَيْرِ أُوْلِي الْإِرْبَةِ مِنَ الرِّجَالِ أَوِ الطِّفْلِ الَّذِينَ لَمْ يَظْهَرُوا عَلَى عَوْرَاتِ النِّسَاء وَلَا يَضْرِبْنَ بِأَرْجُلِهِنَّ لِيُعْلَمَ مَا يُخْفِينَ مِن زِينَتِهِنَّ وَتُوبُوا إِلَى اللَّهِ جَمِيعًا أَيُّهَا

o الْمُؤْمِنُونَ لَعَلَّكُمْ تُفْلِحُونَ

Translation :



(O Apostle) Say to the believing women that they should lower their gaze (looking towards forbidden things and beings) and protect their private parts ; and they should not display their beauty and ornaments except what ordinarily appear ; they should draw their scarves over their bosoms and do not display their beauty except to their husbands, their fathers, their husbands' fathers, their sons, their husbands' sons, their brothers, or their brothers' sons, or their sisters' sons, or their women, or the slaves whom their right hand possess (female slaves) or male servants free of physical needs, or small children who have no sense of the sex; And they should not strike their feet (on earth) in order to draw attention to their hidden ornaments. And O Believers ! Turn you all towards Allah and beg, so that you may be successful.



Surah No. 33, Al Ahzab, Ayat No. 59



يَا أَيُّهَا النَّبِيُّ قُل لِّأَزْوَاجِكَ وَبَنَاتِكَ وَنِسَاء الْمُؤْمِنِينَ يُدْنِينَ عَلَيْهِنَّ مِن جَلَابِيبِهِنَّ

o ذَلِكَ أَدْنَى أَن يُعْرَفْنَ فَلَا يُؤْذَيْنَ وَكَانَ اللَّهُ غَفُورًا رَّحِيمًا

Translation :



O Prophet! Tell your wives and your daughters and the women of the believers to cast their outer garments over their bodies (when they go abroad). That will be better, that they should be known (as free respectable women) so as not to be teased. And Allah is Ever Forgiving, Most Merciful.

Hadis :

The prophet Moahammad (saws) said : " No man should see the satr of another man and no woman should see the satr of another woman. {The limit of satr of a man is from the navel (Umblicus) to the knees, means if a man covering his body with a cloth from the navel to the knees. The limit of satr of a woman for a man is covering the whole body except face, hands and feet, while the limit of the satr of a woman for another woman is the same as the limit mentioned for a man to another man.
