The Ruling on a Woman uncovering her Hands and Feet in Prayer
Question:

What is the ruling on showing the feet and hands for a woman in prayer, bearing in mind that she is not in front of men, but in her house?
Answer:

What is well known in the Mathhab of the Hanbalis - may Allaah have mercy on them - is that all of an adult, free woman is Awrah in prayer, except her face, and based upon this, it is not permissible for her to uncover her hands or her feet, thought many scholars hold that it is permissible for a woman to uncover her hands and feet. But the safest thing for a woman to beware of that, although, if it happened that a woman did so, then she sought a ruling on the matter, no person should venture to order her to repeat her prayers
