History

Many Muslims believe that the Islamic holy book, the Qur'an, and the collected traditions of the life of Muhammed, or hadith, require both men and women to dress and behave modestly in public. However, this requirement, called hijab, has been interpreted in many different ways by Islamic scholars (ulema) and Muslim communities (see Women and Islam); the burqa is not specifically mentioned in the Quran

It is interesting to note that religion/dogma emerge from men not women and these interpretations or beliefs have changed over the many years once these great prophets have died (Jesus,Budha,Allah) all in the name of MONEY and manipulation of those uneducated.

Why women wear black? there is a hadith that Muslim women are to wear dark colors. such as black, brown,gray,blue,dark green,and white. The reason for that is not to get notice on the street. we as Muslim women is to be beautiful for our husband that's at home not for any one else to see our beauty but my husband.

There are reasons and there are excuses. Yours are excuses. The reason is to control women because they are nothing more that property.

Actually, Muslim women have no idenity as humans. Wearing black in the hot desert is unmerciful. The men in Islam are always more important than the women. If a Muslim woman does not do enough sucking up to het hubby, he can condemn her to hell, She is at his mercy. No matter what kind of predujiced beast he is, and show me one Muslim male who would want his fat little chubs watching him hump 72/ 24/7? He has already made up his lustful mind to send her to hell. Sorry, no green dress for you ladies.

Why the fear of being noticed? Are you not human?
Is he afraid his Muslim brother will lust for you? Whose sin is that anyway, certainly not hers because he cannot control his pecker.

Jesus called ''HIM'' the adulterer;
Mt 5:28 But I say to you that whoever looks on a woman to lust after her has already committed adultery with her in his heart.

Peace! So many hateful comments from both sides. My wife owns ONE black abaya. The rest of her colors are bright. It is either cultural or regional... but it really is a personal choice.

One more thing. As a former preacher I can tell you that Islam doesn't hold Eve more responsible than Adam for sinning. In Christianity it was debated (not long ago) if women even had souls.

I think we should focus on worshipping the God of Abraham, speak to one another with peace and kindness, and stop trying to create hate.

Well muslims come from all types of races and ethnicities. The black dress you see worn by arab women in the gulf is traditional. That dress doesn't look good in white, black is the best color for it. The men wear white because it looks better in white that type of dress. It's more regional, but has come to be accepted as "Islamic".

Quran says to treat women kindly, and prophet Mohamed(pbuh) said no man who treats his womenfolk cruelly is from my ummah.

Black colored clothing will not show the form of your body(your curves). If you wear another color "WHITE" it will show MORE of your curves.....
This is why.

Also its easier to clean(stains are hidden)

although, it is bad in your opinion
SO, let's talk just to give an information about saudi traditional.
first of all: you have to know that this is a traditional.
and whenever I want to change, I can change.
let's start,
why men wear white?
first: they call it (thub)
secondly; they consider it as a formal clothes.
when they wear white (thub)?
1- they don't wear it at home
2- they wear it when they get out from house.
3- when they visit their relatives
4- when the attend a wedding party
5- if he was a groom
6- when they go to work.

People Islam doesn't force women to wear black, but Hijab is something that a man and women should do in Islam

In surah Nisa the Hijab of men comes before hijab of women

Have any of you ever heard hijab of men ?

Men can't show their body they can't wear anything that attracts women they got to wear a cap and they have to keep a beard ( cap and beard which are signs of a true Muslim man )

As for women it is the same women have to do hijab not to show their body by wearing tight or transparent or any kinda clothes which show their body..

And yes they aren't suppose to wear vibrant colours that would attract man as well

Islam doesn't restrict colours man to wear white women to wear black

The last prophet Mohammad ( s.a.w ) used to wear a black turban

His wives used to wear colours like green and others

If you want to show Royality or status or something by wearing Royal blue or Dark red then it is not allowed..

Islam is a true religion of peace

And Anti Jihad dude
I do jihad every single day of my life
Jihad means to strive and to struggle and the greatest Jihad is the Jihad with your inner self to fight your inner wills and to do the right thing!

Jihad has various different types if you dont know about Jihad then better not talk about it dude!

first i am a muslim, and i like to wear black, but i am a guy so my parents dont like it when i do, traditionally it is regarded as a colour of mourning, so if you wear black with nothing to mourn about people find it offensive, second i'm a biker, we wear black cos it doesn't show dirt or weakness(trust me this i know), needless to say it has somewhat cramped our style when the most of the women around us adopted the black hijab, third, the colour of evil/devil is said to be red both in Christianity and Islam, the prophet Muhammad was known to have shown disdain for fully red clothing, not black.
when i asked the adopters of the black abaya explain their choice, they told me its a fatwah(a theory or decree) by Saudi based scholars that black clothing helps to hide the female figure better, it did not come from the Prophet Muhammad(pbuh), i have mixed feelings about the colour black mostly cos i want to wear it myself, since the decree didn't come from Prophet Muhammad(pbuh)i don't see why people have to take it so seriously, but the logic behind the explanation from the Saudi scholars is quite sound, black clothing does obscure the figure, in the 1800s people used to wear black trench coats to obscure their figure when pistol dueling to make it harder for the opponent to get a clear shot, this was a favourite tactic of former US President Jackson.
and lastly the colour black is equated to evil in modern culture because of the biker culture in the USA, you can thank the Hells Angels biker gang for that, they explained their adoption of black as aesthetics, it doesn't show dirt and doesn't show weakness, they say so in one of their interviews and even Harley Davidson had a advertisement that said "black shows no weakness"

men can wear those garments which dont show their belly . and at the below part it should atleast be till knees. And women at home can be without hijab if no outsider is in and when they go out the hijab or burka should be such that men are not aroused by it. It dosent matter which colour it might be.

Coming from multicultural little old new zealand, the colour black was considered the colour of choice for many women during the nineties. It was a practical choice for many as it was a colour appropriate for many aspects of daily life, work, social events and celebrations. The idea behind women who wore black during these times was that these are "women who have more personality to show rather then letting their clothes say it for them". The ever changing fashion trends soon dictated that a variety of colours was the best way to show ones personality. Realistically i think it is wiser to stick to traditional aspects of clothing and have a more congruence sense of self then let fashion or trends influence one ideas of the self and to create a basis to then judge those who do not follow.
