Niqab – covering eyes or not

Home / Clothing / Niqab – covering eyes or not


May Allah reward you with goodness.
Is it allowed to leave the eyes open from the niqab if you do not follow the opinion that it is an obligation?

Zaynab El-Kateb:

Yes, even if you take the opinion that covering your face is obligatory. You can leave an opening in your niqab in order to be able to see the street, but try as much as you can not to show anything except your eyes, do not show for example your eyebrows.
