Buying illustrated women’s fashion magazines

Question

What is the ruling on buying magazines in which there are pictures of women, in order to adopt some fashions which are in accordance with our sharee’ah, and ignoring whatever goes against it?

Answer

Praise be to Allah.

It is not permissible for you to buy these magazines in which there are pictures of different fashions because they contain fitnah (temptation) and because this serve to propagate these harmful magazines. You should be content with whatever women in your country wear.
