In the Name of Allāh, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy

On the Authority of ʿĀʾishah (raḍi Allāhu ʿanhā) that some women from Ḥoms sought permission to enter upon her, and she replied: "Perhaps you are from those who enter the bathhouses. I heard the Messenger of Allāh (ṣallallāhu ʿalayhi wa-sallam) say: 'Any woman who removes her clothes in other than her husband’s house has torn the screen between her and Allāh'". [Graded ṣaḥīḥ by al-Albānī in his ṣaḥīḥ of sunan ibn Mājah.]

Shaykh Muḥammad ibn Ṣāliḥ al-ʿUthaymīn: "If this Ḥadīth is authentic—that any woman who removes her clothes in other than her husband’s house has torn the screen—then it means that she removes her clothes in a situation where it is feared someone unlawful can enter upon her."
