Yes, you read the topic right. It is about Islamic Clothing for Men.
You must be wondering that when it comes to “pardah” and dress codes, it is about women only. But! Islam is a religion where there is a code for everything. Clothes for men also have some rules and ethics that are to be followed.
The point is agreeable that women have more assets to hide and men have lesser, yet there is dress code for both. Just the way men should not dress like women similarly women should not dress like men too.
Dress for men
When it comes to men, rules and regulations in terms of clothing are lesser, compared to women. You might be pondering that it is bad, well, the reason is mentioned right above. Women are blessed with goodies more!
Several parts of woman’s body attract men. Would a woman think the same for a man? The answer by majority will be NO.
The basic covering needed for a man is of his ‘satr’/ ‘Awrah’. This area begins at navel and ends at knees. But this definitely does not give license to men to move around bare chest. A man is also required to cover his shoulders and torso. The fabric should not be silk and men should definitely not wear gold.
