QUESTION:

As regards to the covering of the body in hijab, how much of the body has to
be covered?  Earlier I had learned that the face, wrists, and feet upto the
ankle could be left uncovered.  Recently, however, I came to know that now
only the hands and face can show.  I am now following Ayatulla Seestani.
Also, I was under the impression that the hijab for namaaz and that worn
outside have the same rulings. Ayatulla Sestani, in his resalah states that
in namaaz the feet do not have to be covered, but it is better to do so,
especially the underside of the foot.  Can I then assume that the same
ruling applies for the hijab worn outside?

-----------------------------
ANSWER:

The ruling for hijab outside includes covering the feet.  As for the dress
for Ladies for namaaz, covering of the soles is recommended.
