  • Female Clothing Colour Question

    I hope you don't mind the question.

    I understand that Muslim women are meant to dress in a way that is both modest and doesn't draw attention. So why do you see Muslim Women wearing bright coloured clothing? If they didn't want to draw attention surely a standard black would be the best?

    Thanks

          i personally wear black since its my favourite colour when it comes to clothing, i feel covered in black and in other colours i feel a little exposed. there are many women who wear bright colours some who are practising and some who are not, but islamically wearing bright coloured clothing is really not allowed because it does draw attention, but were all human and we mess up as long as we try our best to try and do what is right.

            My understanding on this is that generally the dark colours are recommended

            However in some countries where bright colours are the norm, so say yellow then a woman wearing say a yellow headscarf would not be drawing attention to her self as it is the cultural norm

            In todays world the whole bright pinks and jewelled and patterned stuff is against what the principle of hijab is, generally speaking

                I also understand Muslim men are meant to wear loose pants that are modest and concealing of their awrah. Why do I see SO many Muslim men in skinny jeans? Including in the mosque out of all the places? Surley loose modest pants would be best.

                My point is, its not just women, and people should address the unislamic behaviour of all Muslims rather than this constantly repeated topic.

                But to answer your Q , no we don't have to wear black.

                  Exactly. Where I am living, wearing all black is actually attention grabbing as its not the norm. Wearing all black gets you questions and stares. Where wearing mild colours (not too bright like you said) allows you to not stand out.

                      You know what we should do.

                      Get Sky blue hijabs for the women.

                      Teach them how to fly.

                        Depends on where someone lives and their respective culture. In Saudi you'd wear black, in west Africa you'd wear bright colours.

                          Seen women in there.

                          They can pretty much wear anything as long as it ain't like naked or something.

                          But they like the colour black or their husbands don't like them showing off (they ususally get married young).

                            There's nothing that says Muslim women should just wear black, it's just that's what they wear in Saudi and people have begun to take that as a standard.

                              I was going to bring it up in more than one occasion, but I didn't know how without offending the brothers on forum.
                              I totally agree
