Beautifying oneself before other Muslim women
Fatwa No: 83501


Is it Haram to beautify oneself in front of other Muslim women?


Praise be to Allah, the Lord of the World; and blessings and peace be upon our Prophet Muhammad and upon all his Family and Companions.

A Muslim woman can expose her beauty in front of Muslim women from the Saying of Allah (interpretation of meaning): "…and not to reveal their adornment except to their husbands, their fathers, their husband's fathers, their sons, their husband's sons, their brothers or their brother's sons, or their sister's sons, or their (Muslim) women (i.e. their sisters in Islâm), …"[24:31] and from this verse: "It is no sin on them (the Prophet's wives, if they appear unveiled) before their fathers, or their sons, or their brothers, or their brother's sons, or the sons of their sisters, or their own (believing) women,…" [33:55].
Know that it is permitted only if there is no temptation in doing so and also she should not expose her Awrah.
The Awrah of a Muslim woman (which should not be exposed) in front of other Muslim women is from navel to knees.
Allah knows best.
