The Prophet said, "There is none who wears silk in this world except
that he will wear nothing of it in the Hereafter." [beyond the size
from the middle to the index fingers - this is addressed to men].
Volume 7, Book 72, Number 722: ..
the differences in islamic dress from western dress or medieval
european dress shown on your costume page show not a stark contrast
but a very mild difference in that in both middle class cultures men
wore a tunic like garment but each had different lenghts. a muslim
mans 'tunic" would often be long but not so long as it touched the
ground. a european mans tunic was often much shorter often just going
to the knees and belted at the waist.
wearing a muslim costume now in a post 9/11 world especially in
america im pretty sure would have people looking at me strangely
wondering if i am or not a terrorist.
