Woman offering Salah, wearing her hair in a bun/ What if a woman’s milk touches the clothes?

Woman offering Salah, wearing her hair in a bun

Question 1: What do the blessed ‘Ulama [Islamic scholars] state regarding the following matter: Offering Salah while wearing the hair in a bun (i.e. collecting the hair and tying at the back part of the head) has been prohibited in the blessed Ahadees. Nowadays women hold their hair upwards using a hair clip. Is it prohibited for the women to offer Salah while wearing the hair in a bun, using a hair clip or anything else?

بِسْمِ اللّٰہِ الرَّحْمٰنِ الرَّحِیْمِ

اَلْجَوَابُ بِعَوْنِ الْمَلِکِ الْوَھَّابِ اَللّٰھُمَّ  ھِدَایَۃَ الْحَقِّ وَالصَّوَابِ

The prohibition of offering Salah while wearing the hair in a bun, mentioned in the blessed Ahadees by the Beloved Rasool صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم is specifically related to men as this explicit explanation is present in blessed Hadees itself; this prohibition is not related to women. The Hadees commentators have mentioned the following wisdom of the prohibition [of this act] for men: So that along with a man’s head, his hair also touches the ground and perform Sajdah in the court of Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ. Furthermore, the blessed Fuqaha have mentioned the ruling on it that it is Makruh Tahreemi for the men to offer Salah while wearing the hair in a bun.

On the other hand, woman’s hair is included in Satr-e-‘Awrat which means it is Fard [obligatory] to keep them covered in front of non-Mahram men and specially while offering Salah. If the women do not wear their hair in a bun, their hair can spread around while offering Salah which creates the risk of their hair getting uncovered which, in turn, will affect the Salah as well. Therefore, if the women collect their hair at the back part of the head and tie it, or hold it using a hair clip or anything else, it will prove to be helpful in covering the hair.

وَاللہُ اَعْلَمُ   عَزَّوَجَلَّ   وَ رَسُوْلُہ اَعْلَم   صَلَّی اللّٰہُ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ واٰلِہٖ وَسَلَّم

What if a woman’s milk touches the clothes?

Question 2: What do the blessed ‘Ulama and Muftis [Islamic scholars] state regarding the following matter: If a woman’s milk being in excess, itself keeps discharging and touching the clothes, can she offer Salah wearing those clothes?

بِسْمِ اللّٰہِ الرَّحْمٰنِ الرَّحِیْمِ

اَلْجَوَابُ بِعَوْنِ الْمَلِکِ الْوَھَّابِ اَللّٰھُمَّ  ھِدَایَۃَ الْحَقِّ وَالصَّوَابِ

It is correct to offer Salah wearing clothes having touched by the human milk as the human milk is Taahir [pure].

وَاللہُ اَعْلَمُ   عَزَّوَجَلَّ   وَ رَسُوْلُہ اَعْلَم   صَلَّی اللّٰہُ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ واٰلِہٖ وَسَلَّم
