I find it pretty creepy that the traditional baths had everyone together naked, especially as I think there's a Hadith that specifically forbade this?

Anyways, there still is very much a tradition of women getting together in 'coiffures' in Sudan - all the women go there weekly to have their henna done ( if you're married you dye the tips of your fingers and toes and the soles of your feet, if there's a fancy occasion you have designs added) their hair taken care of etc - it's pretty awesome to be there, with loads of women of all ages and sizes putting their feet up and gossiping and relaxing.

Umm r u sure they were all nekkid? Lol ? I've been to the traditional baths in the Middle East for ladies only. Like real ones that come from springs n things and the ladies wear bathing suits or straight up clothes like pants n t_shirts. Also awrah for women w women is navel to knees, so they could be uncovered a little maybe in the pics/paintings u saw?

Not much one can do if the communal baths were the ony way to have a bath.

I would also imagine there'd be an unspoken etiquette of how one behaved & where one looked.

I was once utterly traumatised by an woman in the female changing rooms at our local swimming baths..... Oh my eyes!

The pictures did show the women covered between navel and ankle. Which frankly I wish women would maintain at the swimming pool!

And when My servants question thee concerning Me, then surely I am nigh. I answer the prayer of the suppliant when he crieth unto Me. So let them hear My call and let them trust in Me, in order that they may be led aright. Surah 2  Verse 186

In the modern day people cover up, and I would've assumed that they did so traditionally as well. It's just that the article pretty much says in gory detail that "all the women were stark naked".  Huh?

I think she meant being not as covered as usual. Not starkers.

But you could be right.

I guess if one had no choice, there would surely be an etiquette to follow during a hamam.
