105. Ruling on preventing women with improper hijab from entering the mosque

If a woman comes to the mosque wearing improper hijab, then according to Islam she should be advised and have explained to her – with the daleel or proof – the fact that hijab is obligatory, and the seriousness of neglecting it. If she then complies, then praise be to Allah. If she does not comply, then do not let her enter, because of the fitnah (temptation) and evil involved in her actions.

The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: “Any woman who has put on bukhoor (incense, fragrance) should not attend this ‘Isha’ prayer with us.”
(Muslim, 675).

And he (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said concerning women’s going out to the mosque: “Let them go out unperfumed.”
(Abu Dawood, 478), i.e., not wearing any perfume.

Women have to go out wearing complete Islamic hijab, and not wearing adornment or perfume.

The Prophet (PBUH) also said “Allah does not accept the prayer of a pubescent woman except if she wears a veil (a head covering).”
(Ahmad and Abu Daawood).

And Allah knows best.
