Question: Assalam Alaikum

I am going to start an Online Store through which I plan to sell clothing.

1-Keeping in mind the nature of clothing for women these days which can be from Simple Shalwar Kameez to Jeans and T-shirts, is it allowed for a muslim to sell such clothing?

2-When displaying clothing on a website it is normally shown through a pic of some model wearing it. Is this allowed?

Answer: Wa alaikum assalam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh,

I pray that you are in the best of health and faith, insha’Allah.

[1] Yes, it is permitted to sell clothing that has a permissible primary use. However, it would be superior to sell dignified and modest clothing.

[2] Please see: Selling Women’s Clothing and Using Women as Models
