Should I dress according to the Sunnah even though it may lead to my arrogance?

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Askimam.org

In a kufr-dominated environment, I want to wear the Shalwar-kurta all the time because it is closer to the Sunnah. However, when I do wear it, I feel a degree of arrogance because I’m the only one dressed like that and people constantly turn their attention towards me. Also, I feel this method of dress is superior to theirs. Should I just go ahead and do it anyway or save myself from Khibr? Jazakallah kkair, and I love your site…May Allah shower you with his blessings.

Answer

The Sunnah method of dressing is certainly superior to every other form of
dressing. Pride is to deny the truth and look down upon people. Therefore,
the wearing of Sunnah clothing is not pride, rather it is a sign of
confidence in maintaining your Islamic identity values.
