Answered by: Shaykh Umer Khan
Someone is asking whether the following would be permissible to wear?
Based on this:
بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيْم
In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
It is forbidden for men to wear pure silk that comes from a silkworm. The Prophet ﷺ is reported to have said: “Wearing silk and gold was made unlawful for the males of my ummah and lawful for its females.” Wearing synthetic or manufactured silk is permissible.
In the Ḥanafī madhhab, it is permissible to wear a garment where pure silk is less than 50% of its total materials. The specific clothes you asked about contain 13% silk, so they would be considered permissible based on this.
Only Allah knows best
