WEARING JEANS UNDER A JUBBA

QUESTION: IS IT PERMISSIBLE TO WEAR JEANS UNDER A JUBBA?

ANSWER BY MAJLIS ULAMA OF SOUTH AFRICA

Jeans are not Islamically respectable. It does not behove a Muslim conscious of Allah Ta’ala, conscious of the Aakhirah, conscious of the Sunnah and who desires the development of taqwa to wear jeans which are garments of low repute and even aligned to hooliganism. It is therefore not permissible to perform salaat with jeans even if a jubba is worn. Although the salaat will be valid, it will be makrooh to wear such offensive garments.
