It appears he is taking it one step further with another recent fatwa stating that a Muslim woman doesn't need to wear a veil at all:
“Islam doesn’t require women to wear veil.”
Plus they can wear makeup, take selfies, and post them on social media sites like Facebook.
Apparently, a Twitter follower asked if it was okay for Muslim women to post photos of themselves on social media, which prompted his response:
“...there is nothing wrong if a woman showed her face or put make-up.”He also posted on Twitter that it was only Prophet Mohammed's wives who were supposed to wear the hijab.
Quoting a Moroccan scholar, he said it was preferable but not mandatory.
