Regarding a hadeeth


Assalamualaikum Wa rahmatullahi Wa barakatuhu

I read a hadeeth:It is proven in Saheeh Muslim and elsewhere from Abu Hurayrah that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “There are two types of the people of Hell whom I have not seen: men with whips like the tails of cattle with which they strike the people, and women who are clothed but naked, walking with an enticing gait, with something like the humps of camels on their heads. They will not enter Paradise nor even smell its fragrance, and its fragrance can be smelled from such and such a distance.”

Whoever claims that this hadeeth is not saheeh and that what it mentions of the severe punishment is not true is ignorant and has gone astray from the path of sharee’ah, and he deserves a punishment that will deter him and other ignorant people like him who object to the saheeh ahaadeeth that are soundly narrated from the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him).


I follow hanafi madhab although islamqa is a website based on the principles of imam shafi but its useful as it states the evidence from hadeeth of prophet muhammad (ﷺ)and Quran.

In the hadeeth it is mentioned:and women who are clothed but naked.

As much as I know women who wear tight and transparent clothes,clothes showing the shape of their body and clothes not covering them properly like short dresses etc are included in this.

But what about those who wear lose trousers?Are they also included?

And if yes then I just have trousers at my home and only one skirt (that I can’t wear at home) and no abayya or burqa.

So because of my problem am I also included?

And I tried to find some winter skirts online but was unable to fimd any maxi(long) skirt.And I also told my mama but she has not bought it for me right now but inshallah she definitely will.but till then  is it a sin on me?And will I never enter paradise?

Please answer fast.



Wa `alaykum As-Salamu wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh.

The tradition you mentioned above is intended to warn against two of the most heinous sins:

1- People in power using their power to oppress and persecute people

2- Women who flaunt their beauty and wear clothes that reveal and invite the opposite’s attention, thus engendering lustful thoughts in their minds.

The purpose is to warn us against such sins. It does not mean they will dwell forever in hell, or they will never enter paradise. Their judgment is with Allah; He may punish them or forgive them as His will is Supreme.

So, I would advise you to do your best to wear modest attire; you can use any loose dress and covers appropriately. It is always essential for you to ask yourself: am I through my clothing, calling people to myself and objectifying me or treat me like a person with modesty and dignity.

The choice is yours. As a person of conscience, I am sure you would choose people not to look at you lustfully.

Almighty Allah knows best.
