Is it permissible for women go swimming in the absence of men if they cover modestly? I ask this question because I wish to teach the Muslim girls at our local mosque how to swim?

Sheikh al-Sharîf Hamzah al-Fa`r, professor at Umm al-Qurâ University

It is permissible for a woman to swim with other women if she covers of her body what she must legally cover in front of them.

It is advisable for a Muslim woman to avoid swimming with women who do not care about religion or who exhibit bad behavior as they might swim semi-naked.
