What kind of clothing do Muslims wear?

For men, there is no specific cloth requirement by religion. It is subject to the local cultures and traditions. However, the cloth should, at least, cover the body from the naval to the knees and should not be silk cloth. Men are forbidden also from wearing gold as ring, necklace, or by anyhow.

For women, no restriction on the cloth material or colors. The cloth could be from silk or any other material. It could be colorful or not. It could be dark colored, white colored, of different colors, whatever. It could be one piece cloth or more than one piece.

However, women are commanded by Islam to wear cloth that covers the whole body, including hair, except the face and the hands. That cloth:

  • should not be so tight to describe the woman body or sexy parts, and
  • should not be so transparent to make the under cloth visible.

The part of the cloth covering the head (and hair) but not the face is called Hijab.

Answer 1 Male Muslims wear 2 cloths and the top cloth is the same as a shirt but it is longer (not a dress) and some male Muslims even wear long sleeves that reach the edge of their fingertips because the last prophet Muhammad Peace Be Upon Him wore clothes just like that. Their bottom cloth is just like a pair of trousers but they can be looser. Males cannot wear silk clothing and they cannot wear jewelry excluding a silver ring with a stone on it.

The same think anyone else wears, except most of the time in the woman's case a headscarf in addition. At least, American Muslims dress like other Americans. I've only met American Muslims and all of them dressed normally except one boy who's Goth.

Answer 2 well Muslim women have to hide their hair so they wear a hijab.

For males, they wear what's called a 'jelaba' (although I am not too sure of the spelling). This is just a long robe, quite thin, that covers the whole body, arms, legs right up to the ankles. Sometimes worn with a pair of pants underneath. This is sunnat of The Holy Prophet (salalahu alayhi WA salaam), who used to wear these, and His favorite color was in white. For the head, they wear a kufi, or a 'toppee'. Other types of clothing are used, only the size of the robe differs to allow more freedom when walking etc. For women, they wear something similar, which, like males, covers the parts mentioned, and more. Women's clothing covers the neck, head and sometimes feet/hands. These are called 'abaya' and 'burqa' amongst others. They can also wear a 'hijab' to screen people from the face, allowing only the eyes to be seen.

They can wear anything which cover Muslim males abdomen to their knees and for Muslim women they should wear those things which covered their hole body except their hands face and feet and the cloths should not be too tight or too short and also their body should not bee seen from their clothes this is both for the men and women

Answer 4:No particular dress code has been prescribed for the Muslims. Islam is a universal religion. Any human being living in any part of the world may embrace Islam. The Muslims wear any dress worn by people living in his own area. Muslim women are supposed not to expose their body when they come out of their house in connection with some necessary errand. They must also cover their faces to avoid the lusty and dirty eyes of men.

[Hint: This answer describes a scholar view of clothing but not describing the Islamic clothing rules and guides. Muslim must adhere with the Islamic rules for clothing and not just to imitate what people are dressing in the country he/she is living in. Covering face is not a requirement for women dressing.]
