Islamic Store

Islamic Store History

The concept for ‘fashion’ in Islam or we can say the space for ‘fashion’ in Islam is controversial. As, from the topic of the article we can see clearly that it is a big problem for an illiterate individual from point of view of religious knowledge to understand whether ‘fashion’  and Islamic ideology about clothing are two different concepts or they can be interrelated. Most of our religious scholars’ say that Islam is a simple religion and it does not allow any ‘fashion’ but recommend simple and plain clothing. On the other hand the modern world, full of ‘fashion’ and design is of the view that no natural religion can restrict a person from his rights and it’s the right of a person to be up-to-date. So, now what to do in this case??? The basic flaw that I got behind this conflict is lack of knowledge and lack of ability to apply that knowledge in a perfect way.

What do we mean when we say the word ‘fashion’? We generally mean it as wearing trendy clothes and being up-to-date in respect of costumes. So, by and large most of us relate ‘fashion’ with clothing and one’s appearance. Most of us in fact don’t know what fashion in real terms mean and how much broader areas it covers beyond what we think it is. According to Oxford Dictionary the word ‘fashion’ means make, style, shape, pattern, manner, whatever is in usage for a time being AGREEING OR NOT WITH CURRENT USAGE.  

Most of us take the meaning of fashion as a trend which is IN now-a-days but unfortunately the concept is incorrect. First of all there is a need to redefine the term ‘fashion’. Fashion is not restricted to one area of life i.e. costume or appearance but it has a very wide applicability in almost every field of life like architecture, arts, dance, style of speech, economic trends, management, politics, medical etc. so, we can easily say that fashion are social phenomena common to many fields of human activity and thinking or in other words we can define it as styles and customs prevalent at a given time (not current time).

So, by the above discussion, it is clear what fashion in real terms mean. Now, coming on the particular field of fashion ‘the costume and appearance’ of a person. This is the most criticized field everywhere in relation to religion especially Islamic ideologies. The appearance of both men and women is questionable. The main point is to see both, the fashion and Islamic teachings, from one angle.

Fashion in real meanings is not to wear trendy, expensive and attractive clothes. Fashion is a style, it’s a make, and it’s an appearance. So, what so ever one is wearing must suit him. Fashion is not to wear what others wear. Just the theme is to wear anything that perfectly suits and match the personality of the wearer. Take fashion from this angle and relate it with Islamic ideologies. Islam does not restrict anyone to wear good clothes. What it restricts, is not to wear such clothes that do not cover the body in a decent way. If we think positively, we all know that such small and so called trendy clothes infact not suit anyone but is a symbol to make oneself different in mob. The reason to wear stupid clothes like baggies and small t-shirts is just to make one different, just to satisfy one own self that everyone is looking at him regardless of the remarks that are being passed on him. If one wears decent clothes, Islam does not stop him on doing this. Demand of Islam is not to wear clumsy clothes but if we study, we will come to know that Islam is very strict for cleanliness especially in clothing.

Islam allows fashion but in certain limits. This should not be a point of conflict that there should be no limitations. Every field has certain limitations. Socially we all are bound for it. Why laws are made??? They are to enforce such limits. As it is a fact that Islam is a complete ideology of life so it guides us in every field. It has limited us in fashion too. It has been done for the welfare of society. We all are well aware of the pros and cons of the ‘most hi-tech fashionable societies’.

So, Islam is not against fashion because fashion in reality is to make better and better, that is why it is adopted and on the other hand, Islam also guides to improve us, to be up-to-date so we can better compete others. The point is simple that not to apply fashion just in terms of clothing. At this point we take a stand that it is our right. If fashion is our right, then why just to apply it at only one sector? Why not to apply it in every field like medicine, technology, welfare? Apply it everywhere. We criticize Islam only due to the reason that it limits us and teaches us how to live in a civilized society???


You decide better what is wrong and what is right, our thinking or Islamic ideologies......
