ummtaalib Posted May 15, 2018 Report Share Posted May 15, 2018 Q. If a woman performs Salaah with a few strands of her hair open, is her Salaah valid? (Question published as received) A. In order for a women’s Salaah to be valid,it is a prerequisite that her Awra is covered for the duration of the Salaah. The Awrah of a woman includes her entire body excluding her hands, feet and face. If a few strands of woman’s hair is exposed during Salaah, her Salaah will remain valid if the exposed area is less than one fourth of her head/hair. If however, the exposed area is one forth or more of her head/hair, and remains exposed for a duration of a posture in Salaah i.e. the duration it takes to recite the three Tasbeehs (approximately 3-5 seconds), her Salaah will be invalid.
