Asalaamu alaikum brothers... I ask the brothers this question because my Western-born sisters cover. But brothers... do any of you wear "Islamic" style clothing? For example, a thobe or dishdasha or salwar kameez? Of the handful of brothers who are closest to me in my masjid there are a couple who are American-born reverts like myself. One is African American, the other is Caucasian. The AA revert will wear a thobe now and again, or the wrap that ties at the waist (I forgot what it is called, izar or something like that) whereas the Caucasian brother adamantly refuses ("I don't dress 'native'" he will say). I personally enjoy dressing in clothing that covers me to my knees as is appropriate, because we are instructed to do so. Lets face it - western style jeans and t-shirts do not offer a great deal of modesty. Some of the brothers at my masjid wear some inappropriately tight pants! But I just hesitate to wear clothes that belong to another culture because I've been told that sometimes people who belong to that culture may get offended. Anyway... ideas? Thanks! D.
