Islamic clothing $10 Men and Women Islamic Clothes
In Islam many rules have been stipulated in
accordance to the teaching of the Quran and the Sunnah
of the Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W) which also includes
clothing. In the early days of Islam the clothing style
of Muslims was to copy the life style of their prophet.
However the term Islamic Clothing' has a different
meaning depending on the geographic location which want
to monitor. With the spread of Islam and different
tribes which converted to the religion many used their
exciting clothing style but slightly modified it to the
rules of the Sharia. The tradition concept has always
been what the Arab wear since they were the people to
whom the prophet of Islam was sent. The item of clothes
which we sell cover for both men and women. This
includes the outer wear but also the additional across
which might go with it. The general rules of Sharia have
been modesty in the appearance so wearing very tight or
see through pieces of clothing is something which very
much prohibited and discouraged in an Islamic society.
The ladies are encouraged to wear the classic Abaya
which is a long cloak or veil which covers them from the
head to the bottom. The men on the other hand are
encouraged to wear loose clothing which do not create a
very attractive or seductive natural of clothing hence
keep a society overall modest. The ruling behind this
has been from the following verse of the Quran in Sura
Nuh in which Allah says "Say to the believing men that they should lower their gaze and guard their modesty: that will make for greater purity for them: And Allah is well acquainted with all that they do". However,
from the different school Islamic thought there are many different interpretations of what "modesty"
entails. The general consensus is to cover the awrah, from the belly button to the knees for men and
on the other hand for ladies to have the head to the toes
except the hands and the face or eyes, depending on what
school of thought you follow (such as Hanafi, Shafi,
Islamic wear country wise, Thawb, Jubbas
Dressing in the Muslim world is very similar in style
with few cultural tweaks in the cut to the level of
decoration on the garment such as embroidery work.
However Islamic clothing in Europe notably the variety of
head gear worn by Muslim women, has become a notable symbol of the
Islamic identification in western Europe which is
predominantly Christian. The wearing of hijab which has
becomes very popular recently amongst the women living
in the western world has led to political debate and
proposals for a legal ban. There have been legal bans
imposed in certain EU countries such as the Netherlands
and more recently France on the covering of the face.
The thawb or jubbas are a common clothing style
which many men wear in the Muslim world. In the Middle
East men would also accompany the keffiyeh scarf the
style and colour pattern vary depending on the country
e.g. Palestinians would wear the grey colour kufiya
(mix of cotton and wool )while the Saudis will wear it in the red pattern.
More recently the trend of wearing a keffiyeh has become
a fashion statement and worn by many young non-Muslim
people. The popular thawb which is worn in the Middle
East is an ankle-length garment, usually with long
sleeves very much like a basic robe. In Swahili this
clothing is also referred to as Kanzu plus it is very
commonly worn in the East Africa countries as well.
