As stated earlier a wife must devote her life for the well being and development of her husband. She must provide him both physical as well as emotional support. Thus, if she makes herself up or wears good clothes it should be solely for her husband and none else otherwise she will be subjected to divine curses and hell fire.
In this regard the Holy Prophet (S) said to Fatimah Zahra’ (sa), “O Fatimah when a women makes herself up, wears good clothes and steps out of her house to attract the attention of other men, the angels of seven heavens and seven earths curse her and she becomes close to the fire of Hell to such an extent that when she dies she will be straight away thrown in the Hell fire.”
Imam as-Sadiq (as) says, “If a women perfumes herself to attract the attention of other men, her prayers will not be accepted until and unless she washes herself of this perfume and this washing will be like that of Janabat (the ritual both after an intercourse).”
On reading this tradition one can comprehend the intensity of the matter and realise the amount of corruption that will spread in the society if a women adorns herself for other men. This is one of the primary reason of the sexual mayhem and chaos found in the world and the increasing number of rape cases reported, particularly from Western countries.
