Are men allowed to wear red color clothing when they pray?

In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Walaikum assalam wa rahmatullah,

There are three colors that are best for men to avoid, in general (whether in our out of prayer):


Saffron red

and Pure yellow, when any of these colors is on its own without other colors.

It is not sinful to wear them, but it is somewhat disliked according to most scholars of the Hanafi school. [Ibn Abidin, Radd al-Muhtar, 5.228, Bulaq ed.]

And Allah alone gives success.



Faraz Rabbani

في تنوير الأبصار مع الدر المختار: ( وكره لبس المعصفر والمزعفر الأحمر والأصفر للرجال ) مفاده أنه لا يكره للنساء ( ولا بأس بسائر الألوان ) وفي المجتبى والقهستاني وشرح النقاية لأبي المكارم : لا بأس بلبس الثوب الأحمر ا هـ . ومفاده أن الكراهة تنزيهية … قال خاتمة المحققين سيدي محمد أمين ابنُ عابدين (رحمه الله تعالى) في رد المحتار: [5/228 ط بولاق]
