Woman Covering Her Head While Eating. by Taamas111 (m): 5:17pm on January 13

Question

Is it obligatory for a Muslim woman to cover
her head while she is eating food or is it
Bid'a? I have seen many women doing this in
my home country. Can you mention any
Hadeeth of our beloved Prophet Muhammad
quoting such a thing?

Fatwa:
All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord of the
Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of
worship except Allah, and that Muhammad
is His slave and Messenger.

We do not know any evidence that urges the
woman to cover her head when eating food,
neither on a desirable nor obligatory basis.

However, there is no harm that the woman
covers her head when eating, and this is not
considered an innovation as long as she does
not intend by this act an act of worship. If
she considers this as an act of worship then
it is an innovation. So it is more appropriate
not to cover her hair sometimes when eating
so that people will not think that this is a
Sunnah as long as there is nothing that
requires covering the head like the presence
of a marriageable man and so forth. If so,
then it becomes obligatory to cover her head
but not because of eating.

Allah Knows best.
