Wearing a Neck-Tie

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Mahmoodiyah


Dear Moulana Sahib Assalamualaikum,

I’ve applied for a job and was interviewed. They want me to wear a neck tie to work. What should I do? Please advise. Thank you.

Jazakallah. Wassalaam.





Wearing the neck tie is not considered as a religious issue according to Christians. It is rather part of the dress code of a “gentlemen.” We do not advise you to wear it. However, if you are unable to find another job then you can wear it to work only.

And Allah Ta’ala knows best
