 Assalaamu alaikum,
What is the ruling on wearing heels? Highheels with a thin heel i am not in favor of as they look sexy. but what about simple shoes with a thick heel (1 inch or so)? is it ok if they are hidden with one's long clothing?
Jazak Allah khair



All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord of the Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allah, and that Muhammad  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allah exalt his mention ) is His slave and Messenger.

 In principle, the shoes and clothes and other things that people wear are permissible unless there is something that constitutes an exception to this rule. Therefore, if the shoes that have thick heels do not make an attractive noise, then they cannot be forbidden especially if the woman covers them with her dress.


 Allah Knows best.
