Disclaimer:-Please note that all our garments fall into the category of 'Modest Clothing' and not 'Religious Clothing'. Even though we have used words like Abaya, Burqa, Hijab, Kaftan, etc, we do not claim all of our garments to fall under the "Islamic Wear" category.
We at Bashariya, recommend most of these garments to be worn in the absence of any Non-mahram as the scholars have specified the requirements of the Muslim woman's proper dress before al-ajaanib (lit. foreigners, i.e., those to whom marriage is permissible) from both the Glorious Qur'aan and the sunnah. Once a woman adheres to such conditions, she can wear whatever she likes and go out into public places so far as her hijaab complies with the Islamic law. A summary of the requirements are as follows:
It should cover the whole body.
It should be thick enough, i.e. non-transparent or translucent.
It should be loose and not tight on her body.
It should not be decorated or ornate such as to attract onlookers.
It should not be perfumed.
It should not be considered libaas al-shuhrah.
It should not resemble the dress of men.
It should not resemble the dress of the unbelievers.
It should not bear crosses or depictions of anything with a soul (humans, animals, etc).
A simple and loose garment which fulfills the conditions mentioned above can be used to go out.
