  • Is it allowed?

    Is it allowed for a sister to remove her Niqab as a whole for work purposes?

    Say for example, a midwife - she isn't allowed to wear her Niqab at work or any head covering for 'safety' reasons and she removes them during work but at work wears em.

    Is this allowed?

    Are there any men around her?
    If not, then yes, of course.

    If there are, then, I don't think so.

    IslamQA tells all the situations where a woman can uncover her face.
    Secure few moments, everyday, to reflect upon the innumerable blessings of Allah and thank Him for bestowing them upon you.

        what safety reasons? all the female nurses and doctors here in Saudi wear head coverings. some of them wear niqaab too, althouhg the hospitals are better segregated so they only wear niqaab when male doctors or the patient's husband/male relatives are around. I don't believe this "safety reasons" nonsense... it's safer to cover your hair than leave your hair covered, for hygiene reasons, surgeons cover their hair for this reason. If the worry is that some head coverings will be too long and interfere with medical equipment then they should have standard issue ones like they do in Saudi, that are short enough to not cause a problem, and the hair tied in a bun under it. Simple.

          ive never heard of a female doctor being asked to remove hojab? but as for niqaab its up to the sister, if she believes it to be fardh then she cant remove it, but if she doesnt then whats the prob?

                Well, I went looking at some fatwas and I found that some say that women shouldn't be running for public positions at all, but others said they can, but not as the head of a state, rather a lower position. However, all agree that a woman may not be leading a Muslim caliphate. Men are the protectors of women, not the other way around.

                Based on that, since scholars aren't even allowing women to take part in governmental positions, I think she may not uncover herself for that.

                  Salaam Alaikom
                  She is not suppose to remove her Niqaab in front of men. It's common sense. Remember the whole purpose of wearing it in the first place.

                    sis there is a scholarly difference of opinion concerning if niqaab is compulsory.

                        its true though? we are all Muslims and we can accept differences in fiqh as long as the rulings fall under ahl sunna wal jamaat. no point fighting among ourselves or judging others for following slightly different fiqh?

                              agree

                              if she doesnt follow its compulsory then how can it b haram 2 take it off in some cirumstances where there is need
                              obviously if following that its wajib then it would b more difficult
