Wearing gloves

Q 1: What is the ruling on wearing gloves? Our teachers at school advise and urge us to wear gloves, but we have heard from some people that it is not permissible to wear them because they show the shape of the hand and the fingers. What is the ruling on gloves? May Allah reward you the best.

A: There is nothing wrong in wearing gloves, except in Ihram (ritual state for Hajj and `Umrah), because the basic rule is permissibility. (Part No. 17; Page No. 178) May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
