Which is better, the thawb or the izaar and rida’ (lower and upper garment)?


Is a thoub , izar and shelwar qamees example of Islaamic clothing and the sunnah of Prophet Muhammd(SAW),or does it just from the culture of Arab countries and Pakistan ? Also,is it preferable to wear this type of clothing instead of Western clothing ,if one is able to do so,while living in Western countries?.

Praise be to Allaah.


The Prophet (peace and blessings of
Allaah be upon him) wore the thawb (qamees), the rida’ and izaar (upper and lower garment) and sirwaal (pants). With regard to the Pakistani dress (shalwar khameez), it is not narrated – as far as we know – that the Prophet
(peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) wore this type of dress. 

Undoubtedly adhering to this Arabic dress
comes under the heading of preserving the ummah’s customs and unique characteristics, and protecting it from imitation of others and assimilation.
This is undoubtedly better than western dress. 

However, clothing is considered to come under
the heading of traditions, and each country has its own traditions and customs, and there is nothing wrong with a Muslim following the traditions
of the country he lives in with regard to dress, on condition that it does not include anything haraam in the material of which it is made or the
way in which it is designed. So it is not permissible to wear silk, or tight clothing, or see-through fabrics that show the ‘awrah, or clothing
that belongs uniquely to the kuffaar or that is made of silk. 

Neither is it permissible to wear “garments
of fame and vanity” – which means things that a person becomes famous for wearing – because the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be
upon him) said: “Whoever wears a garment of fame and vanity, Allaah will clothe him in a similar garment on the Day of Resurrection.” A report
from Abu ‘Awaanah adds: “Then it will burst into flames.” Narrated by Abu Dawood, 4029; classed as hasan by al-Albaani in Saheeh Abi Dawood,

It was narrated that Ibn ‘Umar said: “The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of
Allaah be upon him) said: ‘Whoever wears a garment of fame and vanity, on the Day of Resurrection Allaah will clothe him in a garment of
humiliation.’” Narrated by Ibn Maajah, 3606’ classed as hasan by al-Albaani, 2905.

Now days we as Muslims have to spread the voice to learn quran and so we could gain the true knowledge and the quran teaching that is give to us by our beloved prophet Muhammad peace be upon him and do quran reading. Do we as Muslim ask our self that why we are at the peak of destruction? The answer will be simple that we have left our roots the holy quran we should guide promote Islam from in our homes first and let learn our kids quran  and encourage them in doing quran memorization this should be our first goal for it we can do different stuff like let then participate in different online quran recitation competition to let them listen quran from different online quran reciters and along with it we elders should learn quran also and improve our knowledge of quran and Islam and learn holy quran tafseer because to understand and learn quran Arabic and for this now a days there are many online quran tutor available who teach tajweed quran and its translation and tafseer so let us join our hands to be the voice of Islam and let improve the image of it as well and full fill our duty .
