Part 2 — Dressing Hijab for Men

In my earlier posts, I had started the concept of Hijab is pretty huge, so in order for me to try to cover as much as possible, I would need to break into parts. In Part 1 — Dressing Hijab for Women, and in this Part 2 — Dressing Hijab, I would like to focus on men.

Many people and media, keep pointing hijab for women is oppressing (though there is no actual facts, besides minority women’s views), there is no mention at all on men and their hijab!

Hijab is NOT only for women, rather it is EQUALLY for both men and women.

Hijab for men:

  • Jubbas
Jubbas for men
Ankle-length garment, usually with long sleeves, and similar to a robe.
  • Galabiyyas
Galabiyas for men
Classic Islamic men’s wear
  • Modest Tops
descent tops men
For men, in Islam, must cover from the navel to the knee, private parts, and upper front/back body.
  • Kufis
Caps for men
In Islam, men too are highly advised to wear Kufis

Forbidden for men to wear:

  • Silk (100%)
  • Gold (fake or real)
  • Bracelets
  • Earrings
  • Anklets
  • Transparent clothes (tops/bottoms)
  • Any article of clothes/accessories that imitate women

    Asalaamu alaykum sister, brilliant post. I think hijab was mentioned firstly for men before women but due to the male centered, mysogynistic world we live in it’s always women that are highlighted for their use or non- use of hijab in Islam subhanAllah.
    May Allah swt reward you for this post, Ameen.

      You are def right, hijab was laid out for men first, but the way the world is, ignorance is its highest peak, where even Muslims are not willing to accept this simple fact.

      Aameen and May Allah (SWT) ( الله سُبْحَانَهُ وتَعَالَى) bless you too. Jazaka’Allah Khair ( جزاك اللهُ خيراً) for visiting this blog. Please kindly let your loved ones know about this blog!
