Cross Dressing – Not Allowed In Islam Cross Dressing – Not Allowed In Islam

Islam as a faith upholds morality and chastity to great extents. This is enforced in many aspects of their way of living including dressing. There are specific rules guiding the way both Muslim men and women should dress and carry themselves about. Cross dressing is not acceptable in the Islamic faith. Imitation of the opposite gender in terms of way of life and dressing is prohibited, that is, women are not allowed to wear men’s clothing and men too are not allowed to wear women’s clothing.

For men, they should fully cover their ‘awrah’ (from his navel down to the knees) and their clothing should be loose enough such that their ‘awrah is not described by it. Again the clothing should be thick enough not describe the skin color or the part to be covered (awrah).The clothes should not be designed in a way that it attracts attention. The clothes should not exude fame, vanity or pride and nor resemble that of women or non believers. Silk, gold or effimates should be avoided in men’s clothing too.

Women on their part should not wear any clothe that imitates the men’s clothing such as shirts and ties. Their clothing shouldn’t be transparent and tight fitting to the extent it outlines their body figures. Their clothes should aim at covering their entire bodies apart from the face and hands. Their head, bosom and neck should be covered with a khimar. A jilbab is prescribed for them to enshroud their entire body and cover any open spots. The above measures are prescribed so as to eliminate the attraction of men to several aspects the women body that evokes sexual emotions in men.

The Qur’an says (24) 30-31, “And say to the believing women that they should lower their gaze and guard their modesty; that they should not display their beauty and ornaments except what (must ordinarily) appear thereof; that they should draw their veils over their bosoms and not display their beauty except to their husbands, their fathers, their husbands’ fathers, their sons, their husbands’ sons, their brothers or their brothers’ sons, or their sisters’ sons, or their women, or the slaves whom their right hands possess, or male servants free of physical needs, or small children who have no sense of the shame of sex; and that they should not strike their feet in order to draw attention to their hidden ornaments. And o you believers! Turn all toward Allah that you may attain bliss.”

The rules of dressing in Islamic faith for both women and men must always be adhered to during salah or Islamic prayers even if there is no member of the opposite faith present or when a Muslim is praying alone. Just like the women folk in Islamic faith are forbidden from wearing masculine clothes, the Muslim men are also forbidden by the Islamic dressing code from wearing feminine clothing.

shia sunni unity Shia Vs Sunni The Bone of Contentment between Two Brothers

Both Shia and Sunni Muslims share most fundamental Islamic articles of faith and beliefs; they are the two major sub groups within the Islamic faith. Their differences stemmed actually from political differences other than from spiritual differences. Many variant positions and practices bearing spiritual significance have arisen from these political differences over the centuries, which the two sub groups have been in existence. This division between Sunni and Shia dates back to the time the prophet Muhammad Sallalaho alay hi wasalam passed on. His Sallalaho alay hi wasalam death brought about power struggles that is, who was to inherit leadership from him. Many of the prophets companions were of the opinion that a new leader to take over from the prophet ought to be chosen from those capable of carrying forward the job.

This position gained favor with Sunni Muslims who their name ’ Sunni’ means the one who follows and obeys the traditions of the prophet. As a result to this point of view, Abu Bakr Razi Allah Tallah who was a close friend and advisor of the prophet Muhammad Sallalaho alay hi wasalam was chosen to become the Islamic nation’s Caliph. On the other hand, other Muslims shared the belief that a successor should have been appointed from the members of the prophet’s own family, especially among those he specifically appointed or all together from Imams appointed by Allah Subhana Wa Tallah Himself.

‘Shia’ actually means a group of people supportive  and the Shia Muslims still believe that leadership succession following the prophet’s death, should have been passed directly or handed over to his son-in-law/cousin Ali Razi Allah Tallah. They, therefore, through history, have not been recognizing the authority of Muslim leaders elected instead following a lineage of Imams, whom they believed were appointed by the prophet Sallalaho alay hi wasalam or Allah Subhana Wa Tallah Himself.

The Sunnis make the majority of Muslim population as compared to the Shia. Both groups uphold the core articles of the Islamic belief though from these initial political differences some aspects of their spiritual lives have been affected to some extent thus creating differences between the two groups. Still the Muslims don’t distinguish themselves on this basis claiming membership to any particular group, but rather cherish referring to each other as Muslims. The Shia venerate their Imams as saints thus perform pilgrimages in hope of divine intercession to their shrines and tombs. Sunnis on the other hand counter this by standing on the ideology that there is basis for hereditary class of privileged spiritual leaders in Islamic faith.
