Some more Islamic scholars who say hijab is not mandatory

Abu Hurairah (radhiAllahu anhu) narrated: Messenger of Allah (sallaAllahu alayhe wasallam) said, “Allah does not look at your figures, nor at your attire but He looks at your hearts [and deeds].

This is my fifth or sixth post about hijab and women's dress. You may want to read the following:

I have featured the reknown scholar Dr Shabbir Ally on here before. He is widely respected and said in his videos how hijab is not an Islamic requirement. Here are some more scholars who say something similar.

Tariq Mehmood Hashmi:

Farhad Shafti:

Moiz Amjad:

Abdullah Bin Bayyah:

Nasr Abu Zayd:

Khaled Abou Fadel (previously featured on here):


  1. Hi we don't follow such "scholars" if there evidence is not in line with the Quran and su nah.

    There is ijmaa and quran verses along with muttawatir hadith. Some even say covering head is necessary

    1. You have misrepresented Shabir Ally who says it is sinful not to cover the head and he himself has especially recently been influenced by the west.

  2. Anonymous, these scholars get their evidence from the Quran. If you don't like it ask Allah on judgment day to make a better Quran if you hate the current version so much.

    No reliable hadith exists about hijab.

    Ijma's vary according to time and culture.

    And no, I have no misinterpreted Shabbir Ally. He didn't say what you just said. Your last line makes no sense by the way and contradicts your overall comment.
