1. The Quran, Islam's revealed text “The holy Book”
2. The traditions (hadith) of the prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him)
3. Muslim scholars and Jurists
“Say to the believing men that they should lower their gaze and guard their modesty...And say to the believing women that they should lower their gaze and guard their modesty; that they should not display their beauty and adornments except what (must ordinarily) appear thereof; that they should draw their veils over their bosoms and not display their beauty except to their husbands, their fathers...(a list of exceptions)" [Chapter 18, Sura 24, verses 30-31]
Also, "O Prophet! Tell thy wives and daughters, and the believing women, that they should cast their jilbab (outer garments) over their persons...that they should be known and not molested." [Chapter22, Sura 33, verse 58- 59]
"...If the woman reaches the age of puberty, no part of her body should be seen but this --- and he pointed to his face and hands."
From these and other references, the vast majority of Muslim scholars and jurists, past and present, have determined the minimum requirements for Muslim women's dress:
Clothing must cover the entire body, with the exception of the face and the hands.
The attire should not be form fitting, or so eye-catching as to attract undue attention or reveal the exact shape of the body.
1) A Muslim man must always be covered from the navel to the knees. A Muslim man should not wear tight, revealing the exact shape of body.
Also, the Prophet states that !
2)A Muslim man is prohibited from wearing silk clothing or gold jewelry.
A Muslim woman though may wear silk or gold.
Clothing codes “ scholars and jurists, past and present, have determined the minimum requirements for Muslim women's dress:Jilbab for women” in Islam is a manifestation form in obedience to God where Muslim men and women have similar obligations to submit to no one but God. IN PRACTICE, how izzzzz itt?? Why?
Some Muslim women choose to wear the Jilbab/ hijab
Other Muslim women choose not to wear it
Unaware of clothing codes

The Jilbab scholars and jurists, past and present, have determined the minimum requirements for Muslim women's dress:
To be or not to be? scholars and jurists, past and present, have determined the minimum requirements for Muslim women's dress:Or how to be?
The best solution is an outfit that: scholars and jurists, past and present, have determined the minimum requirements for Muslim women's dress:
Is securely fitted so as not to come off easily
Covers the entire body including the head
Does not overheat the swimmer
And is safe to wear (i.e., does not absorb water, weighing the swimmer down, and thus drowning her)
A drawback of this suit is that it sticks to the body when wet.
Semi suits were being sold in Egypt and were very popular. However, some Muslim scholars have not recommended them.
A looser version may be considered dangerous because it may trap water in the loose folds of the suit which may contribute to endangering the safety of the swimmer.
In the past, religious women in Turkey either didn’t go to the beach or wore regular street clothing into the water. Most women at beaches in secular Turkey wear Western-style bathing suits.
“Water gets inside and it sticks to you” - Erdogan from Turkey said “But I don’t have any other choice.”
Now, the top Turkish company, called Hasema, is producing Islamic bathing suits. Hasema, says it sold 25,000 bathing suits last year and can’t produce them quick enough to keep pace with demand. The company exports to Egypt, North America, England, and Australia.
The suits still aren't perfect for swimming
Head covering: The head is the easiest part of a woman's body to cover when it comes to water activities. One can cover only the hair with a swim cap or bandana; the head with a beanie cap; or the head, neck and ears with a full lycra hood, or with one's own headscarf.
The wetsuit comes in different thickness of neoprene. Is tight fitting, but some women feel this is an acceptable choice to wear. Would recommend 1mm to 2mm thickness, but not thicker than that for swimming. Can be used for snorkeling, surfing, and warm-water scuba diving. One may add a short skirt or pants for modesty.
The top: Long sleeved rash guards. The tight waist is not an ideal for modesty; however, one is able to purchase a larger sized rash guard or by simply cutting off the elastic waistband or one that does not have an elastic waistband and is not extremely tapered at the waist.
Also, one can purchase a large enough rash guard, it will more than likely also cover the buttocks region as well
The skirt: For the women who do not feel comfortable wearing a wetsuit or pants alone, there are nylon/lycra and polyester skirts available that one can wear over the wetsuit (or pants) for added coverage. For swimming, it is highly recommended that shorter skirts be worn (above the knee) so as not to prevent leg motion while kicking.
Also, it may be best to wear it in conjunction with a wetsuit and not with loose/baggy-fitting pants—it may add to the bulkiness of the outfit.
Finally, loose short pants can be another possibility.
The pants: What is available on the market today from various vendors are "quick dry" pants. There are many pants made of nylon or ripstop nylon, sanded polyester or nylon/spandex mix.

just yesterday, we were invited by one of eric's coworkers to a party at a home (a 4 million dollar home!!!!) that had an amazing pool in the backyard. it had several waterfalls and a small bridge you can swim under, and a water slide (that looks like it is made of natural rock), and some "caves", and a couple of jacuzzis that you have to climb up to get to. very very very exotic and beautiful. well, eric and i are the only muslims there, so i wore my ’Islamic swimming outfit' (the long sleeved rash guard top and the quick-dry polyester pants) and it worked soooo well!!!!! alhamdulillah!!! of course, i was the only woman wearing so much in the water, but i was so happy and very comfortable. i feel like i found freedom. anyway, if you ever want me to buy this stuff for you, let me know and you can give me your size, etc. i think it's extremely important to show both muslims and non-muslims that muslim women can be modern and progressive and can participate in water activities w/o compromising our principles or values or beliefs. it just takes a bit of knowledge and creativity, that's all.
now i can't wait to do more public water activities, like snorkeling w/eric and maybe learning to surf...! =;D
