Bismillah ir-Rahman ir-Rahim
While preparing for Asar prayers, I realised the flesh tone of my skin could be seen through my telekung and I felt concerned by it (strange that it never did before…). The hadith about the clothing requirements for a muslimah entered my mind i.e. no see through cloth, so I had to make a choice, whether to continue with prayers just as I was or to add on another layer of clothes.
I decided to wear my abaya underneath my telekung. It struck me that, based on the hadith, the telekung manufacturers should have been more careful to use a thicker cloth but they didn’t so now I’m wondering about my other telekung, whether they are acceptable according to the hadith.
Strange that I never noticed this issue before but Alhamdulillah for the correct knowledge I had regarding it. A paradigm shift occurred for me today… ALLAH knows best. (Ina, thank you. I should use capital letters for ALLAH’s Name…)
