Fallen hair


Assalamu alaikum. Are fallen hair of women considered awrah though they are not part of her?  


Wa `alaykum As-Salamu waRahmatullahi wa Barakatuh.

The fallen hair or body waste does not belong to the category of awrah.

Awrah refers to the part of the body that we ought to cover in front of the members of the opposite sex or we must cover while we are performing prayer.

There is nothing in the sources to rule that hair, and body waste that came off the body is considered as awrah. The Prophet (peace be upon him) has assured us that he has told us clearly what we must do or must not do. The Prophet (peace be upon him) said, “Whatever Allah is silent of, do not dig into it, for it shall be deemed as excused. While saying this, the Prophet cited the verse, “Your Lord is never forgetful.”

According to the rules of jurisprudence, things are permissible unless proven otherwise.

Almighty Allah Knows best.
