Fatwa - Salaah of a woman with short sleeves

Q: Can a woman perform Salaah with short sleeves?


It is not permissible for a woman to perform Salaah with short sleeves if her arms are exposed. It is essential for a woman to cover her entire body during Salaah with the exception of her hands until before the wrist, her feet until before her ankles and her face from forehead to chin and from ear to ear. (The ears should be covered)
