Islamic clerics and Mullahs keep issuing Fatwas on various issues from time to time. But the Fatwa which we are about to read is very different, unique and interesting. An Islamic cleric from Kashmir has issued fatwa against low-waist jeans, stating it as haraam in Islam. Now I don’t understand what wrong this low-waist jeans has done against Muslims? I fear they don’t issue Fatwa against Woodland and Levis in near future. Let’s find out why fatwa was issued against low-waist jeans: (News from Daily Bhaskar)
The religious authorities are tied up in knots over the piece of clothing – low-rise jeans. A Muslim cleric said that a man wearing low-rise jeans reveals his back when he bows down to pray in a mosque, adding that the prayer remains incomplete in such clothes.
Another cleric said that covering the body from waist to the ankles is a must. Campaigns have begun on social networking sites in Srinagar against the practice of wearing revealing jeans to mosque.
Islam’s holy month of Ramadan, which began this week, is celebrated by Muslims worldwide marked by fasting, abstaining from foods, sex and smoking from dawn to dusk. It is a time for soul cleansing and for strengthening spiritual bonds.
The ninth and most sacred month of the Islamic calendar, Ramadan marks the first revelation of the Quran to the Prophet Muhammad and is a time of increased spiritual reflection and devotion.
Fasting during Ramadan is one of the Five Pillars of Islam, meaning it is among the core rituals of the faith.
