Is it permissible for women to wear anklets? هل يجوز للمرأة لبس الخلخال؟

Anklets are among the [accessories of] adornment that a woman is authorized to beautify herself with, as long as she shows them only to those whom Allah authorized her to show them to. Regarding [women’s] adornment, Allah says: “...and not expose their adornment except to their husbands, their fathers, their husbands' fathers, their sons, their husbands' sons, their brothers, their brothers' sons, their sisters' sons, their women, that which their right hands possess, or those male attendants having no physical desire, or children who are not yet aware of the private aspects of women.” (Surah An-Nur (The Light): 31) In addition, there is a specific constraint regarding anklets and their equivalents: The prohibition of stamping their feet to reveal their adornment. Allah says: “And let them not stamp their feet to make known what they conceal of their adornment.” (Surah An-Nur (The Light): 31) And Allah is the Highest and the Best-knowing. الخلاخل من جملة زينة المرأة المأذون لها في التزين بها، بشرط ألا تبديها إلا لمن أذن الله في إبدائها لهم ، وقد حددهم في قوله تعالى : ( ولا يبدين زينتهن إلاّ لبعولتهن أو آبائهن أو آباء بعولتهن أو أبنائهن أو أبناء بعولتهن أو إخوانهن أو بني إخوانهن أو بني أخواتهن أو نسائهن أو ما ملكت أيمانهن أو التابعين غير أولي الإربة من الرجال أو الطفل الذين لم يظهروا على عورات النساء). [النور:31]. هذا في الزينة عموماً ، وهنالك قيد يزاد بخصوص الخلاخل وما في معناها وهو : النهي عن ضرب الأرجل بها ليسمع صوتها ، قال تعالى : ( ولا يضربن بأرجلهن ليعلم ما يخفين من زينتهن ). [النور: 31 والله أعلي وأعلم.
