The Wiles of Women

“If women adorn themselves with expensive garments and jewels genuinely for the sake of the happiness of their husbands, then this is permissible. However, if the adornment is for ostentation  to show others then it is sinful. The sign of adornment being sinful is that within the home,her appearance is that of a menial worker. She dresses shabbily without having concern for her husband. But when she has to go out of the home or attend a function, then she adorns and decorates herself like a princess.”

(Hadhrat Maulana Ashraf Ali Thanvi)
