Covering hair and body before reading Qur'an
Fatwa No: 82145

Question

I AM A WOMAN. DO I HAVE TO COVER MY HAIR AND ALL THE BODY TO RECITE QURAAN ?

Answer

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

Women are not obliged to cover their hair or their enitre body before reciting the Quran.

Allaah knows best.
