Concept of Islam in Fashion

Mohammed Ibrahim [9]

Abstract: Fashion posed a challenge to some Muslim youth because fashion is perceived as Western and does not support Islamic teachings, practices and beliefs. Since Quran is in support of clothing and adornment, learning fashion as Muslims would help to know how to conceal the private parts and also know the proper way of Islamic dressing. The study aimed at finding out the concept of Islam in fashion. The study adopted a quantitative research approach. Convenient sampling technique was used to select the leaders (Imams) or sheiks of traditional Muslims. Questionnaires were handed over to the respondents individually and a total of 42 out of 50 were returned, attaining 84.0 % response rate. The study discovered that Islam embrace fashion, requiring Muslims to wear clothing that covers their body and to beautify their appearance. The study further revealed that the part of the body from the naval to the knees should to be covered, clothing should not be that is specific to non-Muslims, dressing should be in conformity to the moral standard of community accepted by Islam, and men adoption of fashion should not resemble clothing worn by women. Recommendations were made that Islam communities should advice Muslim who actually goes against by displaying fashion in a way that causes harm to oneself or to others, as it totally goes against the objectives of Shari`ah.
