The End - 2000 to 2009

Amazing research and article done by Sidi Salman. Check it out!

salamu `alaykum
Have you ever seen a brother walking around with a t-shirt on? Someone wearing a tie? Dress pants? A sister wearing jeans, modestly covered by a lengthy upper-garment? If you have, then you have also probably seen someone mentioning the impermissiblity of doing so due to it being an imitation of the non-Muslims, something the Prophet (Allah bless him and grant him peace) emphatically forbade.

      Salam,

      It seems that as one growns in one;s imam the natural consequence is the change in the outwardly appearance. When you are surronded by other Muslims it is more peaceful. The same applies to one’s inward journey. The more you aim to please Allah, the easier it is to give up on the need for fashion. Spring is here…what a perfect time to wear Muslim clothing…it is cool and so comfortable to move in..it is more practical. Thank you.

      This is a great post, relevant and thorough.

      I remember hearing very similar discussions from our Shayookh… that if you go to a village in Saudi and you are dressed in a 3-pc suit and everyone can see the clear imitation, then its a problem. Yet, if the whole village starts wearing suits, then it is no longer considered so. This is REAL FIQH mashallah.

      i dont know who would say its bidah, eventhough most of my teachers are salafi but they reject this statement completely-

      wearing western clothing if it adheres to the rules is fine. whoever doesn’t think so is an idiot. Instead of wasting time on this, they should be educating people on Islam.

      Wasn’t it Tariq Swaidan who said that the there is no such thing as “traditional Islamic clothing”. He said the Prophet wore anything as long as it covered him. He even wore pants!!! He mentioned this at RIS in 2006. The conference last December in Toronto Ontario.

      I think it’s true that Muslims are allowed to wear “non-Muslim clothing” (whatever that means. I guess the shirts deny the obligation of prayer or something) but I still think Muslims should dress nice. Vive Shukr!

      The way the Islam is applied and perceived is as an ideology, with very little spiritual guidance or moral grounds. Repeating the name of Allah does not make things holly. Everything that we get from our clerics is stern advices on what should wear, dress, respond, behave, and especially how to control our mother, sisters and wives, at home and outside home. Even in totally different climates we, the controlling men, are advised to imitate the clothing of Arabia. The intelligence is also the speed of adjustment, not only the reciting by heart the longest Surah. It was not proven that a long garment or day pajamas with under trousers and Italian restaurant table cloth or diapers on the head do make us more believers, more respected, more important or superior. Certainly, there are other grotesque clothing styles like rappers’ outfits or orthodox Jew’s garments, but we are not in competition with them, are we? The ridiculous costumes of Muslim women at the Olympics neither helped them to won gold medals nor convince the infidels of the superiority of Islam.
      Only a sexually obsessed or quite impotent person would forbid women to wear what make them beautiful. Why a person with inferiority complex would extrapolate and even impose his thoughts and feelings to all Muslim people? Why should we be guilty for his libidinious thinking? I do think that the clerics, sheiks, mullahs should remain confined to the spiritual aspect of Muslim life—religion not ideology, we should forbid them to dare have opinions about our way of life, for simple reason that they have no expertise in any field: family, administration, law, sport, fashion, arts, and our life is not their business. Period!
