UPDATED: Crown Prince: Saudi Women Not Necessarily Required To Wear Abayas

Full-length robes are symbolic of religious faith  for centuries among Arab countries and Muslim faith. Now, as the kingdom moves toward modernization, it is going to begin new changes.  Sheikh Abdullah Al-Mutlaq, a member of the Council of Senior Scholars, over his radio show named Friday Studio aired on Neda Al-Islam radio station on Friday Feb. 9, said Muslim women should dress modestly, but this did not necessitate wearing the abaya.

Open abayas over long skirts or jeans are also becoming more common in some parts of the country. Sponsored Links  The trend marks a major change in the last couple of years. In 2016, a Saudi woman was detained for removing her abaya on a main street in the capital of Riyadh. Local media reported that she was detained after a complaint was filed with the religious police.

According to Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad Bin Salman, wearing of abaya is not necessary as long as they wear modest and respectful clothing as stated in the Sharia law.

In recent years Saudi woman could face detention only by taking off her abaya in public.
