Prominent Islamic seminary issues fatwa against designer, slim fit burqas
A prominent Islamic Seminary has issued a fatwa against designer and slim fit burqas as it attracts “prying eyes” and is against Islam.
It was mentioned it the fatwa, issued by Darul Uloom Deoband, that various styles, colours and designs were not allowed in Islam.
“In the name of hijab (veil), designer and slim fit burqa is haram and strictly prohibited in Islam,” the fatwa said.
It was a response to a query from a person who had asked the muftis if wearing designer burqas, which are sometimes “body-hugging” were permitted in Islam.
The seminary is one of the biggest and prominent seminaries of Asia and is situated in Deoband town in Saharanpur district.
The Darul Uloom recently issued a fatwa against New Year celebrations, observing that it was un-Islamic as the Islamic calendar year starts from Muharram.
