Traditional dressing choices for Muslims

The Islamic traditional is strict about the kind of clothing that a man and woman should wear. Though there have been changes in the attire of the culture in the past years, but some of the important clothing choices still remain the same. There are various types of Islamic clothing which are stated as follows:

Burka: Burka is a traditional Islamic clothing for women. It is used as an outer garment and covers the whole body of the woman except her eyes. Burka is worn by the Islamic females while they are in public. Though the Islamic law states that a woman can wear burka according to her comfort, it is usually seen that the women wear burka when they are outside the house.

Hijab: A hijab is a head covering or a veil which is worn by women who follow Islam. It is said that a hijab is only worn by a woman while she is in front of the man whom she is going to marry. It is a traditional Islamic attire but it is not compulsory to wear a hijab every time. It should even be worn while offering the daily prayers.

Jubbah: A Jubbah is a long coat or outer garment which is worn by the men who follow the Islamic religion. It is usually worn in professional background or during marriages. Men usually wear a jubbah while they are about to marry or in some special occasions.

Thobe: A thobe is an ankle length garment worn by Islamic men. It is designed in the form of a long and loose shirt and is one of the most prominent attire of the Islamic men. One can buy thobe online where there are varieties of choices and designs for the specific attire.

Ghutra and Egal: Ghutra is a headscarf while Egal is a band that keeps the headscarf in place. It is usually worn by the men while offering prayers. It is the most important Islamic attire and should be worn during the prayers. It is highly considered that while praying, one should cover the head with some scarf or cloth and is applicable for bothe men and women.

Shalwar Kameez: It is worn by both men and women. It is basically a pair of loose trousers worn with a kurta. There are many colors and designs available for bothe men and women. While there are embroidered shalwar kameez for the women, there are plain ones in bold colors for the men as well.

These were some of the most important traditional attires for the Muslims. One can easily buy thobes online and even shalwar kameez and jubbah. There are a variety of choices and designs available for each of the traditional attire in the Islamic culture in online websites from where one can buy easily. Apart from that, one can even find designer traditional clothes through these websites which are not only budget friendly but are even fashionable at the same time.
