▪️At what age must we begin veiling our daughters?▪️

Our Shaykh, Muhammad ibn Hizaam -may Allaah preserve him- was asked the following question:

📩 Question:

The questioner says: At what age must a girl be veiled, because we see girls as old as ten coming out without a veil?

📝 Answer:

It becomes obligatory upon the guardian to veil her as soon as she starts drawing attention and attracting onlookers; young or old alike. This is when it becomes Waajib for the guardian to veil her, i.e. when she becomes a subject of temptation and attention.
