Assalamu Alaikum 

During Salah, is covering the feet and hands obligatory for females?


بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيْم

In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful



The most authentic opinion according to Hanafis is that it is not obligatory for a woman to cover her feet and hands during the prayer.[1]
