Dear Brothers & Sisters,As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
What is the ruling on women wearing neckties, knowing that they are made from fabrics that are only for women?
(There may be some grammatical and spelling errors in the above statement. The forum does not change anything from questions, comments and statements received from our readers for circulation in confidentiality.)
Praise be to Allaah.
I do not think that women should wear neckties, since we have some reservations about men wearing them – so how about women?
With regard to men, there are reservations about them wearing neckties, but nowadays we see many people wearing them, especially some employees in some departments. I hope that men feel uncomfortable about wearing them, but in the case of women, they should definitely not wear them.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
