Assalam o Alaikum, I was wondering... I always dressed modestly, even before I came to know truth. I do wear hijab (when I am able to)... My skirt is always to the ankle and sleeves are never short... but, should I cover my feet or is wearing flip flops ok? And should the sleeves be all the way to the wrist, or is below the elbow acceptable? Please help me on this. You sister, Sweetoo ALLAH AKBAR

Assalamualeykum" I hope Allah makes everything easier for you and guide you to the straight path. The way I learned was that your shirt has to go all the way to the wrist and that you're suppose cover your feet too. I think it's best if your shirt sleeve are all the way to your wrist but I can't advise on covering your feet if it's not something I do. I hope Allah makes it everything easier for you.

Assalamualaikum, Sister Sweetoo, Related to an article, From references, the vast majority of the muslim scholars and jurists, past and present, have determined the minimum requirements for the muslim women's dress: 1. Clothing must cover the entire body, with the exception of the face and the hands. 2. The entire should not be form fitting, sheer or so eye-catching as to attract undue attention or reveal the shape of the body. In one tradition, the Prophet Muhammad is quoted as saying: ".....If the woman reaches the age of puberty, no part of the body should be seen but this.......and he pointed to his face and hands." Wallahu a'lam Allah knows best. Servant of Allah.

I think that what ever ones religion is that they should dress the way they are told to , not the way of other religions say to . It takes a lot to be different but it is worth it. Have a nice day.
