Is it allowed to wear different colours scarfs with a black abaya?
Can we wear a black abaya with black designs on it? Is it allowed to wear a hoodie/sweater on top of the abaya?
In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.
The dress of a woman should:
1) Conceal the body.
2) Be loose so that it does not reveal the shape and form of the body.
3) The dress should not attract the attention of men, for example having bright colours etc.
According to the principals outlined above, it will be permissible for a woman to wear coloured scarfs , and abayas with black designs and hooded sweaters as long as they do not violate any of the above mentioned conditions. If any form of dress dose not confirm to these conditions, it will not be permissible.
And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
