      It is Fardh for a woman to cover her hair in front of non-Mahrams (strange) males. Allah Ta�ala states, �And say to the believing women, they should lower their gazes and protect their chastity and not expose their beauty except for what normally shows.� (24:31)

      According to ibn Abbaas [radhiallaahu anhum] and the vast majority of scholars, �what normally shows� refers only to the hands and face. Other Ulama are of the view that even the face should be covered. (ibn Kathir). However, it is clear from this Aayat that all are unanimous that the hair of a woman cannot be exposed.

      and Allah Ta'ala Knows Best
