  • You cant be serious here Nick are you? well just in case the answer is no they wear full body bathing suits...here are some guidelines for Muslim women dress guidelines: Conditions of Muslim Dress Code 1. Clothing must cover the entire body, only the hands and face may remain visible (According to some Fiqh Schools). 2. The material must not be so thin that one can see through it. 3. The clothing must hang loose so that the shape of the body is not apparent. 4. The female clothing must not resemble the man's clothing. 5. The design of the clothing must not resemble the clothing of the non-believing women. 6. The design must not consist of bold designs which attract attention. 7. Clothing should not be worn for the sole purpose of gaining reputation or increasing one's status in society. The reason for this strictness is so that the woman is protected from the lustful gaze of men. She should not attract attention to herself in any way. It is permissible for a man to catch the eye of a woman, however it is haram (unlawful) for a man to look twice as this encourages lustful thoughts.
  • Actually, yes, some do. It is rare. The Shah had bathing suits (as we would recognize them) legal in Iran prior to the Islamic Revolution. Find a reference here: http://www.wilsoncenter.org/index.cfm?fuseaction=news.item&news_id=25333 Most of my knowledge about this comes directly in class lectures in Socioeconomics of Developing countries. My professor was Iranian, a graduate of the University of Tehran, and had participated in the Islamic Revolution (for which he is abjectly sorry). There is no doubt that the majority of women wearing them were Islamic. That is not to say that the majority of women wore them. You can find it in Egypt and Dubai, as well, although that is also facing a backlash. We currently see a wave of Islamist sentiment, which is to say fundamentalist and radical, sweeping across Islam, and particularly the Middle East. It is mainly Sunni Wahhabism, which has its origins and roots in Saudi Arabia's clerics and royal family. The madrassas in Pakistan and Afghanistan are largely funded this way. The Shias have their version, which is what you see in Iran. When you discuss what Islamic women do and do not wear, it is very dependent upon their culture, family, and interpretation of Islam. However, by and large, the answer is no.
  • Lets not talk about it, its a painful subject
  • Most of the time no because they are dominated my sexist, male tyrants that need to feed their superiority complex!

  • Go to Dubai man. You will see them wearing almost nothing too. Many women under the burka are very modern and they also go out in the open sometimes.
  • Yes, some do, and some don't. Some aren't allowed to.
  • That what do you think of ... How low can you get !!
  • Are Muslim women even allowed to say that word? Anything that ends in kini is not allowed. I have it on the best authority, just like the rest of the clueless wonders who don't know one Muslim but WILL chime in with their priceless opinions.
