1ـ أَبُو عَلِيٍّ الأَشْعَرِيُّ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ عَبْدِ الْجَبَّارِ عَنْ صَفْوَانَ عَنْ عِيصِ بْنِ الْقَاسِمِ قَالَ قَالَ أَبُو عَبْدِ الله (عَلَيْهِ السَّلاَم) الْمَرْأَةُ الْمُحْرِمَةُ تَلْبَسُ مَا شَاءَتْ مِنَ الثِّيَابِ غَيْرَ الْحَرِيرِ وَالْقُفَّازَيْنِ وَكُرِهَ النِّقَابُ وَقَالَ تَسْدِلُ الثَّوْبَ عَلَى وَجْهِهَا قُلْتُ حَدُّ ذَلِكَ إِلَى أَيْنَ قَالَ إِلَى طَرَفِ الأَنْفِ قَدْرَ مَا تُبْصِرُ.

1. Abu Ali al-Ash’ariy has narrated from Muhammad ibn ‘Abd al-Jabbar from Safwan from ‘Is ibn al-Qasim who has said the following: “Abu ‘Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, has said, ‘A woman in the state of Ihram can wear whatever she wants of clothes except silk and al-Quffazayn (something women wear on their hands) and wearing veil is undesirable.’ He (the Imam) said, ‘They must hang something over their face.’ He asked, ‘How far down over the face?’ He (the Imam) said, ‘It should be down over the nose so that she can see without her eyes being blocked.’”
