Title: Showcasing Abayas at exhibition.


Aslm alaikom respected mufti.

I would like to know if it is advisable to showcase my abayas at an exhibition in Jhb.

I will have someone else at my stall and not be there physically.



In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

It is permissible to showcase your abayas to promote the sales of the abayas.


And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best

تفسير ابن كثير ت سلامة- دار طيبة للنشر والتوزيع (6/ 45)

وَقَالَ الْأَعْمَشِ، عَنْ سَعِيدِ بْنِ جُبَير، عَنِ ابْنِ عَبَّاسٍ: {وَلا يُبْدِينَ زِينَتَهُنَّ إِلا مَا ظَهَرَ مِنْهَا} قَالَ: وَجْهُهَا وَكَفَّيْهَا وَالْخَاتَمُ. ورُوي عَنِ ابْنِ عُمَرَ، وَعَطَاءٍ، وَعِكْرِمَةَ، وَسَعِيدِ بْنِ جُبَيْرٍ، وَأَبِي الشَّعْثَاءِ، وَالضَّحَّاكِ، وَإِبْرَاهِيمَ النَّخَعي، وَغَيْرِهِمْ -نحوُ ذَلِكَ. وَهَذَا يُحْتَمَلُ أَنْ يَكُونَ تَفْسِيرًا لِلزِّينَةِ الَّتِي نُهِينَ عَنْ إِبْدَائِهَا، كَمَا قَالَ أَبُو إِسْحَاقَ السَّبيعي، عَنْ أَبِي الأحْوَص، عَنْ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ قَالَ فِي قَوْلِهِ: {وَلا يُبْدِينَ زِينَتَهُنَّ} : الزِّينَةُ القُرْط والدُّمْلُج وَالْخَلْخَالُ وَالْقِلَادَةُ. وَفِي رِوَايَةٍ عَنْهُ بِهَذَا الْإِسْنَادِ قَالَ: الزِّينَةُ زِينَتَانِ: فَزِينَةٌ لَا يَرَاهَا إِلَّا الزَّوْجُ: الْخَاتَمُ وَالسُّوَارُ، [وَزِينَةٌ يَرَاهَا الْأَجَانِبُ، وَهِيَ]) الظَّاهِرُ مِنَ الثِّيَابِ.

وَقَالَ الزُّهْرِيُّ: [لَا يَبْدُو]) لِهَؤُلَاءِ الَّذِينَ سَمَّى اللَّهُ مِمَّنْ لَا يَحِلُّ لَهُ إِلَّا الْأَسْوِرَةُ وَالْأَخْمِرَةُ والْأَقْرِطَةُ مِنْ غَيْرِ حَسْرٍ، وَأَمَّا عَامَّةُ النَّاسِ فَلَا يَبْدُو مِنْهَا إِلَّا الْخَوَاتِمُ.

وَقَالَ مَالِكٌ، عَنِ الزُّهْرِيِّ: {إِلا مَا ظَهَرَ مِنْهَا} الْخَاتَمُ وَالْخَلْخَالُ.

وَيُحْتَمَلُ أَنَّ ابْنَ عَبَّاسٍ وَمَنْ تَابَعَهُ أَرَادُوا تَفْسِيرَ مَا ظَهَرَ مِنْهَا بِالْوَجْهِ وَالْكَفَّيْنِ، وَهَذَا هُوَ الْمَشْهُورُ عِنْدَ الْجُمْهُورِ، وَيُسْتَأْنَسُ لَهُ بِالْحَدِيثِ الَّذِي رَوَاهُ أَبُو دَاوُدَ فِي سُنَنِهِ:

حَدَّثَنَا يَعْقُوبُ بْنُ كَعْبٍ الْإِنْطَاكِيُّ ومُؤَمَّل بْنُ الْفَضْلِ الحَرَّاني
