    Why are women more restricted than men? (OP)


    I don't understand why men are allowed to dress fashionably, style their hair, are able to show their body except for their awrah and be able to sing and dance while women can't wear minimal makeup, have to wear baggy clothes, their clothes have to be unfashionable and dark, can't speak loudly or laugh in public, they can't sing, recite or dance either.

    Why do women need to hide themselves so much when men don't?

    Lets go one by one:
    - Dress Fashionably ( This is only permissible if there is modesty in the clothing - Todays fashion of tight clothing is also disliked in islam as even if a man is covered, it is in his best interest that he has taqwa and modesty in his dress)
    - Style hair: Certain hairstyles are disliked in islam. So there is a limitation.
    - To show the body itself needs good reason even-though the awrah is from navel to knee. Even in hottest countries you will never find a man praying in Jamaah exposing even the permissible awrah.

    It is unfortunate that today Muslim men have forgotten the ethics of dressing as much as woman have forgotten it. We all need to make an effort.

    The general failure of any gender to practice the Sunnah is no excuse for the other gender to abandon the Sunnah.

    Wasalaam.


    Maasha-Allah, very beautiful answers. Jazaak-Allaho khairan katheeran katheera!!!

    “Say to the believing men that they should lower their gaze and guard their modesty: that will make for greater purity for them: And God is well acquainted with all that they do” - 24:30.

    Modesty also applies to men. I don't see how a man walking around shirtless is being modest in looks. If men think that women should cover up so that they're not tempted to look then why do they think the same doesn't apply to them? Do women not find men attractive?
    BOTH men and women are told to lower their gaze. It doesn't say to only lower your gaze if a women is covered, or lower your gaze if a man is covered. Lower your gaze and be modest. End off.
