I hope you are reading this in good health. Here in Malaysia, it is blazing hot, which is typical Malaysian weather. Today, I decided to share something about the women's aurah. Aurah means parts of the body that a woman need to keep hidden from people who aren't her mahram.
I myself am still learning about aurah and how to cover my aurah and I hope what I share today will benefit you and me.
So, I did some research about where in the Qur'an does it state to cover our aurah and there was this paticular verse in surah An-Nur that talks about aurah, It goes like this:
And Say to the believing women to lower their gaze (from looking at forbidden things), and protect their private parts (from illegal sexual acts) and not to show off their adornment except only that which is apparent (like both eyes for necessity to see the way, or outer palms of hands or one eye or dress like veil, gloves, head-cover, apron), and to draw their veils all over Juyubihinna (i.e. their bodies, faces, necks and bossoms) and not to reveal their adornment except to their husbands, or their fathers, or their husband's fathers, or their sons, or their husband's sons, or their brothers or their brother's sons, or their sister's sons, or their (Muslim women) (i.e. sisters in Islam), or the (female) slaves whom their right hands possess, or old male servants who lack vigour, or small children who have no sense of feminine sex. And let them not stamp their feet so as to reveal what they hide of their adornment. And all of you beg Allah to forgive you all, O believers, that you may be successful. [Surah An-Nur 24:31]
From what I have learnt, the only parts you don't have to cover are your palms and face, but you do have to cover your feet. Sisters, trust me, you will look better when you wear socks =)
Case in point, me and my snazzy leopard print shoes, with socks on, of course =)

So, moral of the story, cover your feet, it will be stylish and according to Islam =)
