Fashion Shows and High Tea


Is fashion shows and high teas encouraged in Islam where women leave their homes and dress up to participate in these events especially prior to Ramadaan please advise me from both a taqwa as well as fatwa level.


In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

A woman is permitted to leave her home out of a necessity that is valid in Shari’ah.

Attending to exhibit in a fashion show and high teas is not a valid excuse in Shari’ah for a woman to leave her home.

Therefore, even from a fatwa point of view it is not permissible. Furthermore, we have heard of many unislamic factors in such shows.

And Allah knows best;

Mufti Ebrahim Desai.
