    Everyone has their individual style. even if dressing for comfort or dressing for beauty/fashion. you need to be confortable in what you go out in else ull feel selfconcious. its quite easy to combine both but still dress modestly and appropriately.

    Modesty in first place. Comfort in second place. Beauty in no place at all. What is beauty worth if we are not correctly dressed because men look at our beauty? Clothes is nothing if we don't hide our beauty.

    Re: Dress for Comfort or Beauty?

    Well.... should take advantage of Blessings being bestowed by Allah (swt)... in that case many are given money by Allah (Swt) and they should use it to buy clothes, which are good, and they should look good... BUT within the Limits prescribed by Allah (swt) for men and women....

    Allah (swt) bestows Blessings so one can use them and We also get Thawab and reward for it.... as long as we don't misuse it...

    Actually, I dress for comfort. I really hate to right tight clothes, it is so painful.

    (7:26) Oh Children of Adam! Indeed, We have bestowed upon you from on High (the knowledge of making) garments to cover your nakedness, and as thing of beauty: but the garment of God Consciousness is the best of all. Herein lie a Message from God, so that man might take it to heart.


    ..to cover your nakedness and as thing of beauty... beauty is mentioned by Allah (swt) , so we are not to forget to look good, even though we are to cover ourselves according to the limits prescribed by Allah... and God Consciousness (taqwa) , is the BEST garment for our Heart and Soul, which will inshAllah enable us to keep within limits of Allah regarding what we wear on our bodies...

    I think the poll is flawed. I think majority of us dress for beauty. When we go to the store, we don't necessarily pick out the most loose or baggiest item. We pick the best looking and best designed. I don't think most of us first look for comfort. Just saying. What do oyu guys think?
    I agree that dressing for comfort doesn't necessarily mean you have to look ugly.

    I disagree about picking out something that looks good for going to the store. If I am running to the store I am more concerned with dressing modestly and comfortable, than with looking good. I honestly do not care if anyone thinks I am attractive or not.

    I believe that wearing clothes should submit to islamic prospective rather than for beauty or comfort...

    Re: Dress for Comfort or Beauty?



    I wear clothes because not to be naked. I could careless about fashion and beauty. I am not out there to impress anyone. I hate shopping for clothes, it is so boring. I even hate getting a haircut because I hate sitting there for 15 minutes. I like to dress simple. I don't care about the latest trainers or spend £500 on a shirt. So I go for comfort.

    Re: Dress for Comfort or Beauty?

    I put both, but I think I'd put an emphasis on beauty, honestly speaking. But then again, beauty holds a feminine connotation. So I'll say, I put an emphasis on handsomeness. (I mean, I AM a man, after all.)

    Re: Dress for Comfort or Beauty?

    Both for sure,

    Allah is beautiful & loves Beauty,

    Beauty refers not to fancy tight clothing, <<(more like for attraction n discomfort)

    So be it indoor or outdoor, both matters.
