Shukr - Islamic Clothing

Shukr Online

Great Islamic clothing.

The Messenger of Allah (Allah bless him and give him peace) said,
“Allah is Beautiful and loves beauty.” [Muslim]

And he said (Allah bless him and give him peace),
“Allah loves to see the traces of His blessings on His servants.”

Imam Zayn al-Din al-Razi (d. 666 AH), author of the famous dictionary Mukhtar al-Sahah, explained the essential rulings of dress in his beautiful work Tuhfat al-Muluk:

“The levels of clothing. Clothing has three levels:
1. Obligatory. This is covering one’s nakedness, and warding off the harms of heat and cold…
2. Recommended. This is wearing beautiful clothing, in order to look good and adorn oneself, displaying the blessings of Allah.
3. Prohibited. This is dressing out of haughtiness and arrogance.”
[Zayn al-Din al-Razi, Tuhftat al-Muluk, 277, Dar al-Basha’ir al-Islamiyya ed.]

And Allah alone gives success.

  1. Shukr has wonderful clothing, and alot of stuff is on sale now. Take it from me, i've been to Syria and I bought Arab clothing. I came back and bought the Damascan Galabiya (Shami Galabiya) and it turned out to be better than the Syrian stuff. I even had to exchange my first order because of the color, and it was handled wonderfully.
