The Ruling on Women Wearing White Khimar or White Jilbab – Shaikh Abdul-Muhsin al-‘Abbad

Question: What is the ruling on a woman wearing a white khimar or white jilbab?

Answer: “If it is something specific for women or made for women or the women wear it, then there is no harm in that. However, her wearing clothing that does not resemble the clothing of men, no doubt that is more deserving”.

[Sharh Sunan Ibn Majah no. 292]
