Men should also wear their pants, or lower garment, above their ankles. This is to protect their clothes dragging in filth, and to prevent arrogant behavior. In the past, and sometimes nowadays also, men of high status would let their cloaks drag behind.
And just like women are forbidden from wearing men’s clothing, the Islamic dress code also forbids men from wearing women’s clothing.
To finalize the appropriate manner of Islamic dress for men:
- Must cover their awrah (from the navel to the knee) in front of all unrelated women.
- Must not wear gold or silk or any effeminate clothing.
- Should keep their lower garment above the ankles.
It should be noted, that the rules of Islamic dress for both men and women, must be followed during Islamic prayers, or Salah. This is mandatory even if there is no one from the opposite sex present or if one is praying alone.
