What is the role of a husband in Islam?
A husband is commanded by the law of Allah to treat his wife with equity, to respect her feelings, and show her kindness and consideration, especially if he has any other wife. Nevertheless, the man may not be able to be fair and just in terms of love.
What do men in Islam have to wear?
According to the traditional view in Sunni Islam, men must cover from their belly buttons to their knees, though they differ on whether this includes covering the navel and knees or only what is between them. Conversely, men are permitted to wear anything made of wool, camel hair, or goat hair.
What is the Awrah of a man?
In Sunni interpretations, the ‘awrah of a man refers to the part of the body from the navel to the knees. The Maliki, Shafi’i, Hanafi and Hanbali schools of thought observe that the navel is included.
Are there any customs that all Muslims follow?
There are certain customs that all Muslims are expected to follow, but since Islam is interpreted in many ways across many cultures, it is difficult to make sweeping generalizations. The vast complexity of Islam is compounded by cultural variations among Muslims.
How are Muslims required to dress according to Islam?
Islam encourages people to be proud of who they are. Muslims should look like Muslims and not like mere imitations of people of other faiths around them. Women should be proud of their femininity and not dress like men. And men should be proud of their masculinity and not try to imitate women in their dress.
What are the roles of men and women in Islam?
Hadith Sahih Bukhari (9:89:252) states that Men are expected to be “guardian of [their] family” whereas a woman is expected to be “guardian of her husband’s home and of his children” In some Muslim-majority countries, women are legally restricted from practicing certain rights.
What are the beliefs and practices of Muslims?
