    :lol: That's sad!! It's become a trend now, to have your pants low so you could walk around like a 2 yr old in a full diaper! People need to pull up their pants!! :girl3:

    Hence why I wear the baggiest clothes (when I wear 'western') that you can find (ask thariq2005, he thinks my t-shirts are his thawb size). It's really getting on my nerves how brothers 'can crack a smile' in the salaah as you like to put it. Forget cracking a smile, even lower garments that show your thighs shapes somewhat is objectionable, if not haraam (according to some)...

    Assalaam walaikum,

    Brother..that goes for both sexes.

    I am still stuck on the skinny jeans and tight t-shirt. ( on a man!!!).

    There are no smiling cracks because the skinny jeans reveal it all..

    I must write I am very fortunate...at my new masjid we have an imam. Things are organized.

    Brother Danyl: congrats...I'm working on my son..tall and big men's clothes cost a small fortune..and shoes...his are the easiest to find after salat. They look like boats.

    There is a solution if your masjid is ready to spend a bit.. Some plain Egyptian Galabeya of different sizes (they are as low as 12-15$ each) can be put in a rack at the back of the masjid, around 12-15 should be fine. Anyone who isn't in the proper attire can grab and put one on.

    I have seen this practice in some places here in TX.. Even the brothers who wear those basketball shorts all the time usually have a Galabeya somewhere in their car's backseat and put it on when they come to the masjid. I would suppose that this happens quite a lot in CA too. So perhaps you can look into it.

    In any case, we should advise these people with kindness (especially the youth). Harsh ways of approaching can lead them to abandon the masjid and having them in the masjid (even if improperly dressed) is still a plus in our times. We have to be reasonable and adapt according to present conditions. Rather than appreciating advices as we should all do, they can even have a 'who is he to tell me' attitude and this might lead to sour moments. So the message has to get across in a friendlier and thoughtful manner.

    InshaAllah they will realize their mistakes and rectify themselves. :)

    Mashallah, that is a good idea brother and our masjid actually did try it - but unfortunately those galabeya tended to walk out the door within a matter of weeks, along with our wudu-room flipflops.

    wow it is a good idea. im supporting it:hijabi:

    here in malayisa, all the masjids providing 'prayers cloth' for the women

    and i think it is a good idea to provide galabeya to men as well.

    at least to encourage the muslims to pray eventough they are 'in the middle

    of shopping or sports'.

    Wait.. are you telling me that people stole flip flops and clothes that were meant for people performing salah ? La Hawla Wa Laa Quwata Illa Billah.. That's despicable..

    Here, we try not to even have our cars parked in the masjid spots when it's not prayer time (some of us live close by so it can happen), so that other people coming to the mosque don't find inconvenience to find parking spots.. I can't even imagine people stealing from the Masjid, May Allah azz zawajal guide them and us. Ameen

    Salams dear brother it happens, my husband and son have had their new shoes for Eid stolen a number of times when they go to pray the Eid prayer, people pass by and take their pick, astaghfirallah, thats the times we are living in,
    on another note brothers should go to the masjid clean ( they are not allowed to haram other muslims , even with bad smells etc)and wear something long enought to cover their awra( between the naval and knee ). I good idea to keep a thawb in your car etc for pray and of course it would be right for the brothers to always have decent right clothing on at all times,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
    And Allah ta'laa knows best

    Yep. We had our wudu room totally renovated this year and at its "grand opening" we had a rack FULL of red flip flops for us to use in it. Within a month they were gone.

    A few of us brothers use to have very similar flip flops.
    I remember a few times when they would take one of there shoes & accidently take one of mine. So I would have one shoe that fits well & one that wasn't mine.
    I just using the same shoes to the masjid, until one day I found both of my shoes together.
    I never new who accidently took it in the end but I got mine back & they got there's back.
    It was funny while it was happening...............lol

    May Allah guide them! The issue about wearing the izar above the ankles is not a big issue, I think I have made a thread about it.


    Here's an interesting fatwa about Muslim men wearing islamic clothes in Dar ul-Kufr:

    I think the comments you all make for something as serious as topic as this is outright silly.
    There is bit of childishness in all that you have written. Guess its more of a fun centre than a "turntoislam" post. Show some restraint.

    This thread is almost 2 years old so you're a tad late with your chastisement. Besides I didn't see it veering off track and some very beneficial conversation resulted. No harm done.

    walikumsalam,

    I understand the issue of mens should not be wearing very fitted cloths due to several reasons (also comes in the category of imitating kuffars). But even if you don't wear tight cloths, lets just say normal fit that also comes under the title of following the kuffars dress sense, doesn't it?. kuffars wear both tight and general fit.

    In a result, even general fit could be regarded as haram isn't it? ?

    wa alaikum asalaam

    Baggy trousers might again be imitating kuffar, so we have to draw the line somewhere. I am not a scholar though. Rightly or wrongly, I take my cue from what the older brothers at the masjid wear - they are more likely concerned with decency than fashion
