A hadith in Sahih Muslim:

Abu Huraira reported Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying: Two are the types amongst the denizens of Hell, the one possessing whips like the tail of an ox and they flog people with their help. (The second one) the women who would be naked in spite of their being dressed, who are seduced (to wrong paths) and seduce others with their hair high like humps. These women would not get into Paradise and they would not perceive the odour of Paradise, although its frag- rance can be perceived from such and such distance (from great distance). (Book #040, Hadith #6840)

Thanks for sharing, when I was in Egypt in 2008 I already saw a lot of this "camel" thing.

Seriously, having been in the mid east and watching how trends flow, many Muslimahs are too preoccupied with hijab and abaya fashion. It totally defeats the purpose.

Why this makes news though is another story. Women are always being watched for their outer appearance, when does it stop?

Women will be judged on their style and fashion as long as it matters to them .We, as women , keep the style/fashion industry in business , as long as we are their slaves .
