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, Hambali).

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.
