Islamic Clothing for Women
Arabic Clothing for MenFor Muslim men, the awrah' is the part of the body between the navel and the knees, or sometimes upper thigh. This means that these areas must be covered at all times, especially when in public or mixed company. Just like with women, a Muslim man's clothing should be loose, thick and not attract attention. Men are also forbidden to wear gold or silk.
Similar to the customs regarding women, in many Muslim societies, men wear long, flowing robes or tunics. A thobe, thawb, dishdasha, suriyah or kandura, is a robe-like garment worn by Muslim men particularly in Iraq and Gulf Arab countries. This outfit extends to the ankles and often has long sleeves. There are slight variations in the thobe seen in different countries and regions.
A shalwar kameez is a common outfit for both Muslim men and women, particularly in South Asia. Shalwar are loose fitting pants, similar to pajama pants. They are held up by an elastic waistband and may narrow at the ankle. The kameez is a long tunic.
In South East Asia, Muslim men wear a sarong or sarung. A sarong is a long length of fabric worn around the waist like a skirt. It does not touch the ground and often has a colorful, checkered pattern. Women may also wear sarongs as well as those throughout the Pacific Islands or the Arabian Peninsula.
A bisht is a flowing cloak worn in Arab countries. It is worn over the thobe. Because of warm weather, a bisht is often only worn for special occasions such as friday prayer. In some places, a bisht is worn by nobility or tribal chiefs.
