Allah does not accept the Salah of a woman who is unveiled

Question

Is this a Hadith?

“Allah does not accept the prayer of a woman that has reached puberty unless she wears the veil.”

 

Answer

Yes, this is a Hadith recorded in Sunan Tirmidhi, Sunan Abi Dawud, Sunan Ibn Majah and other Hadith collections on the authority of Sayyidah ‘Aaishah (radiyallahu ‘anha).

(Sunan Tirmidhi, Hadith: 377, Sunan Abi Dawud, Hadith: 641, Sunan Ibn Majah, Hadith: 655)

 

Imam Tirmidhi (rahimahullah) has declared the Hadith sound (hasan). Imam Ibn Hibban (rahimahullah) has declared the Hadith authentic (sahih).

(Sahih Ibn Hibban; Al Ihsan, Hadith: 1711. Also see: Footnotes of Shaykh Muhammad ‘Awwamah on Musannaf, Hadith: 6279)

 

Kindly refer to a Mufti/Darul Ifta for a Fiqh ruling on this issue.

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
