“May the Peace and Blessings of Allah be Upon You”

Praise be to Allaah, we seek His help and His forgiveness. We seek refuge with Allaah from the evil of our own souls and from our bad deeds. Whomsoever Allaah guides will never be led astray, and whomsoever Allaah leaves astray, no one can guide. I bear witness that there is no god but Allaah, and I bear witness that Muhammad is His slave and Messenger.

Hijab For Mens

Compiled from various sources , Edited by Adil Khan

We men are always most likely to point out things what a female has to do (like Hijab, dress modesty), while we (mens) usually dont follow whats written for us.

Or it seems we are not even aware of the correct ruling of the dress.

How many of us (mens) wear their trousers above the ankle ?

How many of us (mens) spot a beard & trim their mustache ?

Hijab And Clothing for Men

People usually only discuss Hijab in the context of women. However in the Holy Quran, Allah (swt) first mentions Hijab for men before Hijab for the women.

“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”

(Surah Noor, chapter 24, verse 30)

The moment a man looks at a woman and if any brazen or unashamed thought comes to his mind, he should lower his gaze.

1: Men are also required to cover their body parts that reveal body

For men, its compulsory for them to cover their body from navel to knees.

This has been confirmed in the narration of Abu Said al-Khudri who said that the Messenger of Allah (saw) said, “A mans awrah is between his navel and his knees.”

Messenger of Allah (saw) said to Jabir, “Cover your thighs, for the thigh is the awrah.”

The Messenger of Allah (saw) also said to Hudhayfah when he had his thigh uncovered, “Do not reveal your thigh nor look at anybody elses thigh, whether he is alive or dead.”

And he said to Mumar when he passed him by with both his (Mumar’s) thighs uncovered, “O Mumar! Cover your thighs; the thigh is awrah.”

2: Mens are required to lower their gaze strictly and not look up to women in public places intentionally.

“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”

(Surah Noor, chapter # 24, verse #30)

3: Gold and Pure Silk are Haram for Men

A man by the ruling of Allah is not allowed to wear either silk or gold.

Islam has forbidden men from wearing silk and gold but has allowed it for women, as well as for men who have a skin problem and need to wear silk.

Ahmed, al-Tirmidhi and al-Nisai reported that the Messenger of Allah (saw) said, “Gold and silk are allowed for the women of my Ummah and forbidden for the men.” ‘

Umar ibn al-Khattab reported, “I heard the Messenger of Allah saying, ‘Do not wear silk, for one who wears it in this world will not wear it in the Hereafter.

Hadith – Sahih Al-Bukhari 7.693, Narrated Uqba bin Amir ….A silken Farruj was presented to Allahs Apostle and he put it on and offered the prayer in it. When he finished the prayer, he took it off violently as if he disliked it and said, “This (garment) does not befit those who fear Allah!”

”Men are only allowed to wear silk if it does not exceed three or four fingers in lying next to each other in width.

Ahmed, Abu Dawud, al-Nisai, al-Tirmidhi and Muslim have reported on Umars authority that the Messenger of Allah (saw) had forbidden men from wearing silk except to the extent of two middle and index fingers joined together, as demonstrated by the Messenger of Allah (saw).

In another narration, he (saw) forbade silk except to the extent of two, three or four fingers.

Islam has allowed the wearing of silk for sick male Muslims without any limit to the width.

Al-Nisai, Abu Dawud, al-Bukhari, Ahmed and Ibn Majah reported on the authority of Anas that the Messenger of Allah (saw) permitted Abd al-Rahman ibn Auf and al-Zubayr to wear silk because they suffered from the problem of skin irritation. Some scholars have used silk as analogous to the wearing of gold for medical purposes.

As for the evidence regarding the forbidding of the wearing of gold for Muslim males, al-Tirmidhi reported on the authority of Imran ibn Hassin, as did Muslim on the authority of Abu Hurayrah, that the Messenger of Allah (saw) forbade them from wearing gold rings

All reported that the Prophet (peace be on him) took some silk in his right hand and some gold in his left, declaring, “These two are haram for the males among my followers.” (Reported by Ahmad, Abu Daoud, al-Nisai, Ibn Hayyan, and lbn Majah, who reports the additional phrase, “but halal for the females.”) ‘

On another occasion, referring to a silken garment, he said, “This is the dress of a man who has no character.” (Reported by al-Bukhari and Muslim.)

The Prophet (peace be on him) once saw a gold ring on a mans hand. He immediately took it from him and threw it down saying, Does a person pick up a piece of burning coal and hold it in his hand?

After the Prophet (peace be on him) had left the place, someone asked the man, Why do you not pick it up and benefit from it?

He replied, No, by Allah! I shall not pick it up after the Messenger of Allah (peace be on him) has thrown it away.

(Reported by Muslim.)
