Women Clothing

Assalamualaikum, 

I wanted to ask can a wife wear ladies shirts, ladies jeans, mini skirts, short clothes, any type of clothes that expose body parts and any type of clothes which are see through only to please her husband? only in front of her husband by trying to hide from the kids and other family members (Wife not wearing clothes in front of anyone else except husband). Her husband asks her to wear clothing to avoid any looking at non mahram women who wear these type of clothes. Can she wear any type of clothes which expose body parts or any short clothes only in fron of her husband?

Also advise if she wears the clothes that are see through(usually made of net) would the hadeeth of Prophet Muhammad PBUH apply that women who wears thin clothing would not get to smell the fragrance of jannah.

Jazak Allah Khair

بسم اللہ الرحمن الرحیم

الجواب وباللہ التوفیق

(1) The wife can wear all kinds of clothes in front of the husband, but the intention of the wife shall be only to please the husband, not to imitate the infidels, immoral practices and immoral women. If the husband is not available, the wife is not allowed to wear such scant dresses.  

(2) The curse mentioned in the hadith is for those women who wear thin clothes, or tight trousers, etc., and pose in front of the “mahrams” (persons prohibited from intermarriage) or “non-mahrams” (persons allowed for intermarriage) besides their husbands for the purpose of showing off. Such are the women who deserve this curse.

(۱)وینظر الرجل ...... من عرسہ وامتہ الحلال .... الی فرجھا بشھوۃ وغیرھا۔ قولہ: ومن عرسہ وأمتہ ۔ فینظر الرجل منھما وبالعکس الی جمیع البدن  من الفرق الی القدم ولوعن شھوۃ لأن النظر دون الوطء الحلال قھستانی ۔فقط (رد المحتار علی ا لدر المختار:۹؍۴۴۶) (کتاب الحظر والاباحہ)

’’ يَا بَنِي آدَمَ قَدْ أَنْزَلْنَا عَلَيْكُمْ لِبَاسًا يُوَارِي سَوْآتِكُمْ وَرِيشًا وَلِبَاسُ التَّقْوَى ذَلِكَ خَيْرٌ ذَلِكَ مِنْ آيَاتِ اللَّهِ لَعَلَّهُمْ يَذَّكَّرُونَ ‘‘(الاعراف:۲۶)

عن ابی ھریرۃ رضی اللہ عنہ قال: قال رسول اللہ صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم : صنفان من اھل النار لم ارھما قوم معھم سیا ط... ونساء کاسیات عاریات ممیلات مائلات رووسھن کاسنمۃ البخت المائلۃ ، لا یدخلن الجنۃ ولا یدجن ریحھا، وان ریحھا لیوجد فی مسیرۃ کذا وکذا ۔
