Islamic attire in college

Q: I am from India. I did not offer Namaz regularly before 1 year. I did not know the difference even between Mahram and Gair Mahram. I was spending my time in music and other major sins. But Alhamdulillah! Allah Ta’ala took me out of the valley of sins. Now I perform Salaah on time, and do not listen music. My life changed by the bayans of Ulama likes of Hazrat Maulana Syed Anzar Shah Qasmi D.B. Now I wear the cloths like the Ulama-e-Deoband, I always wears a Topi. I passed class 12th this year and now I am to get admission in any collage. I will have to wear uniform defined by college. But I don’t want to wear pants and shirt. I want to study more but I don’t want to wear pants and shirt. But if I goes to college, I will have to wear pants and shirt. Please tell me that what should I do?


A: Request the college permission to attend the college dressed in the Islamic attire. It is hoped that they will not object.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
