Tights under abaya

Fatwaa ID: 1197

Assalamualikm warahmatullahi wabarakatu Mufti Saab would it be permissible for a woman to wear clothing like tights and joggers under an abaya(she is fully coverd from the outside) when she goes for umra or would it be considered as lack of adaab/ respect of the haram.

In the Name of Allaah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salaamu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullaahi wa-barakaatuh.

It is permissible for a woman to wear whatever she wishes under her abaya as long as the abaya covers her ‘awrah fully and modestly. What she wears under does not have anything to do with adab.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best.
