الجواب حامدا و مصلیا

The sacred Shari’a has not made it obligatory to adopt a particular design of dress permanently. However the dress should be in such a way that suits the way of learned and pious elders in which certain principles are taken into consideration.
1.Dress should cover the Satr completely.
2.Adornment be achieved whilst remaining within the fold of Shari’a
3.Purpose should not be to showoff or boast.
4.No pride is emitted inside the heart by wearing it.

As for pants and shirts, since it is the portrayal of western culture and ethics, and also contravenes the Islamic teachings and principles, it is necessary to refrain from wearing it considering it to be a good costume and making it a permanent habit unnecessarily, and Salath etc. are permissible with detestation with this dress
