Respected Shaykh, assalamu alaykum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh. Am I allowed to take a bath at my aunt’s house or anyone else’s house? خلع المرأة ثيابها خارج بيتها

Praise be to Allah, and may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon the Messenger of Allah, his family and his companions.   Wa alaykum assalam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh.   It has been narrated from Abi al-Malih, from `A’ishah (may Allah be please with here), the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) said, “No woman removes her garments in other than the house of her husband except that she has torn the screen between herself and her Lord.” [Abu Dawud (4010), Tirmidhi (2803) and Ibn Majah (3750)]   Tirmidhi said this hadith is hasan (good in authenticity). Al-Shawkani, after reading out the chain of narrators, said about it, “And all of them are men [graded] as sahih.    Scholars have said that this warning is based upon exaggeration in protecting and covering a woman, and to protect her from causing fitnah [temptation for others] or being put into fitnah herself.   The context of this warning is that removing her garments can lead to exposing her `awrah (private parts) to whom it is not permitted to see [i.e. anyone other than her husband]. However, it is not a blanket statement which includes even those situations that are safe from such happening.   The jurists have mentioned this hadith in the context of women entering hammams, which were public baths in the past, resembling what are known today as saunas. So what can be derived from their discussion is that behind the warning is due to the fear of exposing the `awrah and fitnah. So those who allowed entering public baths (saunas) did so with the condition that they are safe from the above happening. As for those who allowed it only in the case of need, they looked at it from the understanding of exposure. So they allowed it only in the case of need, which means that in the absence of need, they did not allow it.   Also, there is a difference of opinion concerning other than public baths (saunas). Ibn al-Muflih said, “There is a difference of opinion regarding a woman’s sleeping [overnight] at her family’s place [i.e. at other than her husband’s home].” [Al-Furu` (1/207)]   What is apparent is that the ruling is not restricted to a specific place. Rather, wherever there is a probability of the `awrah being exposed, then it is prohibited [to remove clothing]; and when it is safe, then it is permissible.   And Allah knows best.  

Your brother,

Dr. Khalid al-Muslih
