  • Boy's 'halal' shorts- solutions?

    Salaam,

    I have two young boys between 5-7 yrs age. Now they're getting older I'm trying to find longer shorts but kids shorts are awful! They are tiny!

    I tried going up a size but they look silly and my boys find it uncomfortable as they are too big around waist.

    I looked for 3/4 shorts but no luck in kids sizes. Also tried zip off trousers but they are too short too.

    My boys really love wearing shorts in summer and I don't want to say they can't wear them because of deen. Surely there must be a solution?

    Wa alaikum assalam,
    My understanding is that the trouser leg should be above the ankle but no higher than mid-shin, so I always ended up altering longer trousers for my boys at that age.
    Allah is so Great and Merciful that although we continue to disobey Him, He still awaits for our repentance so that He may forgive us.

      Use some of their old trousers that still fit them at the waist but have gone small in length by cutting the leg parts at the bottom upto how long you want their shorts. Then hem where you cut them. You can hem by hand or if you have a sewing machine you can use that.

      If you find a good price for trousers their size buy them and adjust them to short length that you want. That way you won't have problems with the waist and they can have shorts too.

        Sister, a quick online search for kids' three quarter length shorts returns quite a lot of results.

          Sister,, more important than finding the "right shorts" is that your sons need to understand that obedience to Allah and His messenger is more important than their likes and wants in life

          If they dont learn that now, when they get older, their wants will be more important than their islam

          "They cant do that because of deen" is an excellent foundation

          There are so many things i would like to do, but "i cant do that because of deen"

          my kids learned there were no "halal" shorts, and they accepted it

          Then, after some time, when they fully understand that they must put their love of Allah over their love of self

          get them these

          Search for "hip hop shorts" or baggy shorts or 3/4 shorts

            of course the deen is not a bunch of NO's but it is a yearning to please Allah so Allah will be pleased with us

            that goes for all things

            as we are growing up in the West, we learn that our likes are more important than anything else

            THIS IS WRONG

              I find shorts not only immodest, but also rather repulsive & awful to look at.

              It's upto parents to instill modesty & haya in kids right from birth & to train their thoughts into loving only those things that are in line with the Sunnah.

              If kids feel hot during summer, parents should buy comfortable lounge pants for them. Your children should never "love" something that's not allowed in the deen. Haraam should never be an option in a Muslim household.

              Kids adjust pretty fast in whichever environment you provide them, so, it's upto you to decide how you wish to raise them. That includes clothing.

              My son will turn one in a few days, but I have never dressed him up in shorts. I have a huge stack of unused shorts which have been gifted to him as sets along with shirts. However, I always kept the shorts away & bought new pants to go with the shirts.

                  This is so clever!!! So just buy trousers and cut/hem them, genius!

                    Totally agree jazakallah, glad to read these kind if encouraging posts as everyone I know don't give second thought to halal clothing for boys as they think they are kids and it doesn't matter or they are boys so it doesn't matter what they wear.

                    The skater/baggy shorts will be great when they're older i.a, they are very skinny kids!

                      Thanks sister.

                      My husband wears 3/4s and I don't find anything wromg with these so my kids have worn shorts since babies, but now they go masjid I talk to them about covering their bodies and what is halal/haram and I know gor men you easily get halal shorts and wanted to find a solution for my kids. Alhamdulillah got some fantastic ideas here.

                      i want them to know and feel Islam is not restrictive.

                      Also if anyone is looking for kids long shorts h&m do 'clamdiggers' and la redoute do cropped trousers.
