Asalamu alykum... I have seen many of my sisters performing salah in sutans or tight trousers at home or in university the salah acceptable?

Will that do...i mean will salah be accepted if just the small part of legs are visible by shape n the whole body(upto knee) covered by loose garment.

I have explained you earlier. A Muslim Woman can only reveal her face, hands and feet, and she can not reveal any other part of her body by any means (i.e not covering or wearing tight garment which reveals her figure). So the answer is NO.

The commands of Allah (S.W.T) is clear. If those girls want to pray then they should stop wearing tight garments to attract guys or copy western girls and pray only to please Allah (S.W.T).

JazakAllah... But they put on a very loose garment over them which covers their legs upto their knee (even more longer) leaving a very small part visible by shape...

She has to cover herself with that loose garment according to what Islam has prescribed for them, because that is what their Satar. And the Satar of woman is that only her face, hands, and feet can be revealed.

No, She can not pray wearing a dress which shows her figure. And to wear tight trousers is not allowed for Muslim Girls whether they are offering Salaah or not.

Here is the Dress Code of Muslim Woman

  1. Clothing must cover the entire body, only the hands and face may remain visible (According to some Fiqh Schools).

  2. The material must not be so thin that one can see through it.

  3. The clothing must hang loose so that the shape of the body is not apparent.

  4. The female clothing must not resemble the man's clothing.

  5. The design of the clothing must not resemble the clothing of the non-believing women.

  6. The design must not consist of bold designs which attract attention.

  7. Clothing should not be worn for the sole purpose of gaining reputation or increasing one's status in society.
