Wearing trousers in a girls hostel.

Q. Is it permissible to wear trousers in a hostel? I am a student and I live in a girls hostel. Alhamdulillah I do hijab when I go to the college or outside the hostel.

A. If it is an environment with only girls, then it will be allowed to wear trousers in the hostel. However, you must remember that at all times, even if you are in front of girls, you will not be allowed to wear tight fitted clothing or thin see-through clothing.

And Allah knows best.
