On Appropriate Clothing for Women on the Spiritual Path

Answered by Sayyidi al-Ḥabīb `Umar bin Hafīẓ (may Allāh preserve him and benefit us by him).

What is the most appropriate clothing for women who have taken this spiritual path to wear?

The most appropriate clothing is that which is most modest, concealing and closest to the clothing of Sayyidah Fāṭimah al-Zahrā’, the daughters of the Prophet and the wives of the Prophet, the Mothers of the Believers (may Allāh be pleased with them all).
