Q: we went to a wedding. My sister was wearing a dot on her head like the actresses to in the movies. An elder came a told her it is haram sister to have this dot. she says it not really a dot but like a dot. Can u xplain to my sister please. I btw agree that this elder was right. She says it was not a dot but to everyone it is. thankx. (text)
A: The dot that you are talking about is part of the hindu culture. For a Muslim to wear it is truly haram. The elder was correct in his/her claim. Muslim woman have an attire and dress code that they should be proud off. To wear a dot represents the pinnacle of shirk attire. Even if the dot is shaped in the form of a diamond, square, etc. the same rule would apply.
Allah Certainly Knows Best.
