Answered by: Shaykh Ahmed bin Mohamed Umarji

 

Question:

 

Is it permissible for a bride to have a trail on her dress? Or would that be under the prohibited isbaal?

 

 

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

 

Answer:

 

There are narrations that prohibit Isball. Narrated Abu Huraira: The Prophet (ﷺ) said, “The part of an Izar which hangs below the ankles is in the Fire.”1 However the prohibition is specific to males. Mulla Ali Al Qaree states: “There is the consensus of the permissibility of Isbaal for Women”.2 Thus the use of such a dress is permissible.
