• Awrah

    Awrah (Arabic: عورة‎) refers to the intimate parts of the body, for both men and women, which must be covered with clothing. Exposing the Awrah is unlawful and is regarded as a sin, except in situations of necessity.

    The Awrah for a man refers to any part of the body between the navel and the knees whereas the Awrah for a woman generally refers to the entire body except for the face and the hands. It is important to note there are differences of opinion among scholars regarding what constitutes the Awrah, especially for women.
