Women Dressed As Men

Q:

Is it permissible for a woman to be dressed like a man (for e.g. wearing fake moustache and beard with clothing specifically worn by men) for the purpose of playing the role of a man in a skit/play and appear in front of men and women, while maintaining her hijab?

A:

Alaykum Salaam

As long as it is clear to all that it is for the purpose of play/skit and Hijab is maintained there is no problem especially if it is front of women. In front of men it should be avoided.

Kind regards
