9. Males should avoid wearing bright colours that resemble the colors of women’s clothing e.g. saffron colors, pink etc.

عن عمرو بن شعيب عن أبيه عن جده قال هبطنا مع رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم من ثنية فالتفت إلي وعلي ريطة مضرجة بالعصفر فقال ما هذه الريطة عليك فعرفت ما كره فأتيت أهلى وهم يسجرون تنورا لهم فقذفتها فيه ثم أتيته من الغد فقال يا عبد الله ما فعلت الريطة فأخبرته فقال ألا كسوتها بعض أهلك فإنه لا بأس به للنساء (سنن أبي داود #4068)

Hazrat ‘Abdullah bin ‘Amr bin ‘Aas (radhiyallahu ‘anhuma) reports, “On one occasion, we descended a valley with Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam). Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) turned to me while I was wearing a cloth which was dyed with a yellow-colored dye. Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) asked me, “Why are you wearing this garment?” I thus perceived he disliked the clothing I was wearing (and was displeased) so I went to my family while they were lighting the oven and I threw it (in the oven and burnt it). I then went to Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) the following day and he asked me, “O Abdullah, what did you do with your garment?” I informed him what I had done with it. Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “Why didn’t you give it to one of the women in your family? There is no problem in women wearing this type of clothing.””

5. Women should conceal their entire bodies by wearing loose-fitting and concealing clothing and by also donning the niqaab.

یٰۤاَیُّہَا النَّبِیُّ قُلۡ لِّاَزۡوَاجِکَ وَ بَنٰتِکَ وَ نِسَآءِ الۡمُؤۡمِنِیۡنَ یُدۡنِیۡنَ عَلَیۡہِنَّ مِنۡ جَلَابِیۡبِہِنَّ ؕ ذٰلِکَ اَدۡنٰۤی اَنۡ یُّعۡرَفۡنَ فَلَا یُؤۡذَیۡنَ ؕ وَ کَانَ اللّٰہُ غَفُوۡرًا رَّحِیۡمًا ﴿۵۹﴾

O Nabi (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam)! Say to your wives and daughters, and the believing women, that they should draw down their shawls over themselves. That will make it more likely that they are recognized and not abused. And Allah is All-Forgiving and All-Merciful.

2. The clothes that one wears should not be tight fitting or body hugging. One should wear loose clothing.

عن أبي هريرة قال قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم صنفان من أهل النار لم أرهما قوم معهم سياط كأذناب البقر يضربون بها الناس ونساء كاسيات عاريات مميلات مائلات رؤوسهن كأسنمة البخت المائلة لا يدخلن الجنة ولا يجدن ريحها وإن ريحها ليوجد من مسيرة كذا وكذا (صحيح مسلم 2/383)

Hazrat Abu Hurairah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “There will be two groups (in my ummat) who will be punished in Jahannum. These two groups I have not yet seen (i.e. they will emerge after my demise). One group will carry whips with them resembling the tails of cattle, with which they will (oppressively) lash the people. The second group will be those women who will wear clothes yet they will still be naked (i.e. tight fitting or flimsy clothing), they will attract men to themselves, and they themselves will be inclined towards them, their heads will resemble the humps of the Bukhti camels (i.e. they will wear buns which will be high like camel humps). They will not enter Jannah nor smell its fragrance, despite its fragrance being able to be perceived from a great distance away.”

Hazrat ibn ‘Abbaas (radhiyallahu ‘anhuma) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “The one who firmly holds onto my sunnah at the time of corruption in my ummah will earn the reward of one hundred martyrs.”
