Some women tie their hair at the back of the head. Does this come under what has been prohibited in the hadith of the Messenger […. and the women who would be dressed but appear to be naked, who would be inclined (to evil) and make their husbands incline towards it. Their heads would be like the humps of the bakht camel inclined to one side. They will not enter Paradise and they would not smell its odour whereas its odour would be smelt from such and such distance]?

Shaykh ʿAbd al-Azīz bin ʿAbdullah bin Bāz:

No. The hadith reads: “like the humps of camels inclined to one side”, meaning they gather things on top their heads in order to enlarge them. As for this tying of the hair, it does not come under the same ruling that the Messenger said. However, in the prayer they should untie it and let it loose [under their hijab] As for what has been reported in the hadith, “like the humps of camels inclined to one side”, this means that they gather things on the head such as cloth such that it appears like the humps of camels inclined to one side. The humps of the bakht camels look like two humps with something in between them.
