Ruling on a female employee wearing a shirt with the company logo over her jilbab

Question

I work for a company which requires me to wear a shirt with their logo. I am a woman who usually wears the jilbab. Is it permissible for me to wear this shirt over the jilbab? Of course I know that it is not permissible to wear pants or inappropriate clothes.

Answer

Praise be to Allah.

There is nothing wrong with a woman wearing a company shirt over her jilbab, subject to two conditions:

Firstly, the shirt should be loose and not show the shape of her body, or resemble men’s shirts. For a description of how women’s clothes should be, please see the answer to question no. 6991 .

Secondly, the slogan should not include anything that is haraam, such as crosses, images of animate beings, or any symbols of disbelief.

And Allah knows best.
