Text Preview Awrah (Arabic: عورة) is the Islamic term that represents a part of the body, whether male or female, who illegally opened or displayed. Awrah is interpreted differently depending upon the sex. In other words, it is obligatory as Muslim to cover and hide themselves from being seen in front of unrelated men or women. Exposing their bodies are unlawful in Islam and is regarded as sin.
