Women Dressed As Men


Is it permissible for a woman to be dressed like a man (for e.g. wearing fake moustache and beard with clothing specifically worn by men) for the purpose of playing the role of a man in a skit/play and appear in front of men and women, while maintaining her hijab?


Alaykum Salaam

As long as it is clear to all that it is for the purpose of play/skit and Hijab is maintained there is no problem especially if it is front of women. In front of men it should be avoided.
