Islam Q&A – The Ruling on Underwear

From those all knowing worthies at Islam Question and Answer:

Ruling on Underwear

A friend of mine told me that wearing the modern under wear is not sunnah. Is this true?

Praise be to Allaah.

Our shaykh ‘Abd al-Rahmaan al-Barraak answered this question as follows:

“Underwear and other types of clothing have to do with habits based on people’s traditions (‘urf), so long as they do not contradict the sharee’ah. The wearing of pants (sirwaal) was known at the time of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) because of the hadeeth of Ibn ‘Umar (may Allaah be pleased with them both) concerning what the muhrim (person in a state of ihraam for Hajj or ‘Umrah) is forbidden to wear: ‘The muhrim should not wear a shirt or turban or pants…’ (Agreed upon).”

There is nothing wrong with wearing underwear so long as it does not involve anything that is haraam, such as crosses or pictures of animate beings, or women wearing men’s clothes and vice versa.

Islam Q&A
Sheikh Muhammed Salih Al-Munajjid

Putting explosive materials in your underwear would not seem to be ‘haraam.’

Which once again brings us to the obvious point:

We are told that submission and obedience are the very foundation of Islam. So it’s clear that if the Mullahs really wanted to stop terrorism all they would have to do is tell their followers to stop and it would end.

That the top Muslim clerics have not stopped their followers from committing terrorist acts tells us all we need to know about the Religion Of Peace.

    You’re right SG, I imagine explosive underwear isn’t haraam at all since the intended results are to leave behind large numbers of in-animate beings.
    Death seems to be very much embraced in the Islam ‘urf.

    Yeah, Catholics always are treated as a bunch of subservient sheep to their evil leadership in Rome; why have we never heard of an international campaign from the moderate Islamic clerics to distance themselves from the murdering terrorist wing? Well the sects do all hate eachother and when they’re not fighting us or the Jews they’re fighting eachother.

    I haven’t studied Islam well enough to comment, but the Sumerian, Babylonian – all the way to Ottoman – cultures, all the empires and belief systems through the years, and none of them have ever served to represent humanity and life as anything but an unfortunate and unconrtollable curse with death as the true liberation. That is, all of them but Judaism.

    It would only be haraam if it exploded then it would haraam the wearer.

    Sorry, I just couldn’t resist.

    What kind of religion tells you what kind of underwear is allowed?
    Just when I think I’ve heard it all….And people “submit” to this nonsense.

    To each his own I guess….until they start killing people and trying to force their crazy a** beliefs on the rest of us.
