My wife was sitting with a group of fam ladies – mostly middle to elderly and a controversial subject on the length of the female hair came up. One of the older ladys said the belief of having long hair was a misnomer and it was better to cut your hair to just below the ear – this will also allow their scarf to sit better . Most were taught that a woman MUST have long hair so that when they die their hair is draped over their breasts. Can Mufti Saab please clarify, is this now a modernists view and what is the Shariah ruling? Jazakallah

It is not permissible for females to cut their hair except a finger-tip length when coming out of Ihraam. There is absolutely no proof that female Sahabah cut their hair.
