Can a woman uncover her hair in front of her fiancé before the nikaah?

Question

Is it permissible for a female to display her hair infront of her fiance before the Niqah?

Answer

Praise be to Allah.

If a man has seen enough of his fiancée, within the limits set by Islam, to enable him to decide whether to go ahead with the marriage or not, then it is not permissible for her to uncover any part of her body in front of him until after the nikaah. (See also question #2246 and #2572). And Allaah knows best.
