69. Instructions for Elderly Women


Surah No. 24, An Noor, Ayat No. 60

وَالْقَوَاعِدُ مِنَ النِّسَاء اللَّاتِي لَا يَرْجُونَ نِكَاحًا فَلَيْسَ عَلَيْهِنَّ جُنَاحٌ أَن يَضَعْنَ

o ثِيَابَهُنَّ غَيْرَ مُتَبَرِّجَاتٍ بِزِينَةٍ وَأَن يَسْتَعْفِفْنَ خَيْرٌ لَّهُنَّ وَاللَّهُ سَمِيعٌ عَلِيمٌ

Translation :

Such elderly women who cannot bear child or does not have the prospect of marriage― there is no blame on them if they lay aside their scarves (Over garments), provided they do not display their beauty: but it is best for them to be modest: Allah is One Who sees and knows all things.
