Don’t Describe Women

The Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “A woman should not look at or touch another woman so that she may describe this woman to her husband in such a way as if he were actually looking at her.” [Bukhari]


Describing another woman’s virtues, especially her physical attributes, to a man, may cause undesirable thoughts and sometimes a secret desire to build up in him for the other woman. Therefore, the Shariah has prohibited women to describe other women to their husbands.


Allah, Most Merciful, has guided us in every way!
