as salaamu alaykum wa rahmatullah,

I believe that even the ulema that say that niqaab is required say there are exceptions/special circumstances in which a woman may show her face, and one of them is in the court of law if a judge/qadi requires it for some reason.  (I know that this is the case in the Shafi'i school).

It's important for us to be steadfast and strong in our practice, but also to couple that with proper understanding and knowledge about how we practice and apply the rulings of Islam.

Allahu a'lam.

As salaamu alaikum

I have a problem with this because the judge decided to ignore any evidence to support her claim all because he could't see her face.  This is justice denied.  Granted this is a civil matter however even in criminal cases if the defendent is not present in the courtroom the trial continues so certainly no one can see the defendent let alone his/her face (and mugshots don't count).

As salaamu alaikum

Depending on the case witnesses/ defendants/applicants have been allowed in the past to give evidence from behind a screen (its not a new thing), the testimony in such cases has never been questioned due to having their identities (in some cases) concealed.



Wassalaam

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
