    Pink & Sexism? (OP)


    Is it sexist to think a female's favorite color is pink or purple?


    Is it tomboy-ish for a girl to like blue/green?

    I don't know why, but this just clicked in my head.

    Actually no. There's these baby girls at my Masjid, and they always talk about things with the color pink. Then this other little girl came to my house and said I shouldn't think she likes pink just because she's a girl. That was a verbal slap in the face...

    God knows how this 9 year old thread hit the latest posts section but yeah, it is reported that there was a certain bright reddish yellow colour which he appeared to dislike on men, (possibly saffron?) but was ok with women wearing it except during pilgrimage.


    Sunan of Abu-Dawood Hadith 4057 Narrated by Abdullah ibn Amr ibn al-'As
    The Messenger of Allah (saws) saw me. I think I wore a garment dyed with a reddish yellow colour. He asked: What is this? So I went and burnt it. The Prophet (saws) said: What have you done with your garment? I replied: I burnt it. He (saws) said: Why did you not give it to one of your women to wear?

    Or maybe because the idolator men wore it as a religious symbol? Allah knows best

    -------




    Red: It was reported that wearing pure red is forbidden for men, but not for women, because of the hadeeth of Ibn ‘Umar: “The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) forbade mafdam” (reported by Imaam Ahmad and Ibn Maajah, 3591). Mafdam is something that is filled with red safflower dye. According to the commentary of al-Sindi on Sunan al-Nisaa’i, mafdam is something that is filled with red. It was reported that if ‘Umar saw a man wearing a garment dyed red with safflower, he would pull him aside and say, “Leave this for the women.” (Reported by al-Tabari).

    ‘Abd-Allaah ibn ‘Amr said: “A man who was wearing two red garments passed by the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) and greeted him with salaam, but the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) did not respond.” (Reported by Abu Dawood and al-Tirmidhi, and classed as hasan by al-Bazzaar, who said: we know it only through this isnaad, which includes Abu Yahya al-Qattaat, who is a disputed figure).

    There were several suggestions as to why men are forbidden to wear red, including the following:

    because it is the dress of the kuffaar

    because it is the adornment of women, so forbidding it is a way of discouraging the imitation of women

    because it is vanity and does not befit a decent man to wear it

    The prohibition applies only to garments that are dyed completely red. Garments that contain another colour such as white, black, etc. are not forbidden. This is how the ahaadeeth that speak about the red hullah should be interpreted, such as the hadeeth of al-Bara’ (may Allaah be pleased with him) who said: “The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) was of average height. I saw him wearing a red hullah, and I have never seen anything better than it.” (Reported by al-Bukhaari, 5400). The Yemeni hullah usually has stripes of red and another colour, it is not pure red.

    Ibn al-Qayyim, may Allaah have mercy on him, said: “The clothing (of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him)): Abu’l-Waleed told us Shu’bah told us from Abu Ishaaq who heard al-Bara’ (may Allaah be pleased with him) saying: ‘The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) was of average height. I saw him wearing a red hullah, and I have never seen anything better than it.’ The hullah consists of an izaar and a rida’ (lower and upper garments)… It is a mistake to think that it was pure red and not mixed with any other colour. The red hullah is two Yemeni garments woven with red and black stripes like all the other Yemeni garments… But pure red is emphatically forbidden. In Saheeh al-Bukhaari it is stated that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) forbade red saddlecloths (or blankets) … With regard to red garments in general and red broadcloth, etc., the issue is still under discussion, but it is very disliked (makrooh).” (Zaad al-Ma’aad, 1/139). And Allaah knows best.
