Ruling on wiping over Khimaar

Question 23Respected Shaykh, you mentioned in the chapter on wiping over Khuffs (leather socks) that it is permissible for a woman to wipe over her Khimaar (veil covering to the waist), what is the basis that substantiates this ruling?

Answer: It is permissible for a woman to wipe over her Khimaar that she wears over her head and is wrapped under her jaw for one day and night if she has not taken it off as long as she finds difficulty in taking it off to perform Wudoo’ (ablution) and hence it is treated like a more here.
