anklets

Q: Can woman wear anklets?

A:

وَلَا يَضْرِبْنَ بِأَرْجُلِهِنَّ لِيُعْلَمَ مَا يُخْفِينَ مِنْ زِينَتِهِنَّ وَتُوبُوا إِلَى اللَّهِ جَمِيعًا أَيُّهَا الْمُؤْمِنُونَ لَعَلَّكُمْ تُفْلِحُونَ

And (let woman not) stamp their feet so as to reveal what they conceal of their adornment. And turn unto Allah in unison, O believers, in order that you may succeed.

Anything that functions as an attractant towards strange men is forbidden. Wearing attractants whilst enticing strangers would function as ‘assisting towards evil’ which the Quran prohibits.

You are welcome to wear anklets in front of your husband, and other non-strangers, etc.

If worn in public, it should be worn in a manner does not attract attention and thus should be worn inside ones boots or inside sock area.

Allah Certainly Knows Best.

  1. would this same rule apply to women who wear high-heels?
    I read many books that differ on that question.
