Women Prayer Outfits Perfect For Ramadan

Style Syahirah Mokhtazar 07-May-2019

As Muslims, we are obligated to perform prayers five times a day, as it is the second pillar of Islam. It is through these daily prayers that we truly get to connect with Allah SWT, and strengthen our relationship with Him.

Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) once said:

“When anyone of you stands to pray, he is communicating with his Lord, so let him pay attention to how he speaks to Him.”

When we pray to Allah, we must look and feel our best. “Take your adornment (by wearing your clean clothes) while praying” (Quran 7:31).

Muslim women must cover their entire body when praying, apart from their face and palms. The cover must be ample and loose so that it doesn’t show the shape of the body.

There are many types of prayer clothing women can choose to wear while praying. Here are some ideas where you can find prayer clothing for Ramadan, so you can look and feel your best while praying.
