Proper Islamic Clothing For Kids!

Now you will know how to dress properly and please Allah! There's Ayats, Hadith, and Facts take a look!
 
Boys:
There are similar, yet less obvious requirements for a Muslim male's attire, then there is for the female.

What to cover:

He must always be covered from the navel to the knees.

What not to wear:

A Muslim man should similarly not wear tight, sheer, revealing, or eye-catching clothing. The prohibitions against wearing clothing of the opposite sex or distinctive clothing of other faiths is also the same. In addition, a Muslim man is prohibited from wearing silk clothing (except for medical reasons) or gold jewelry.

Some Hadith:

The Prophet (peace be upon him) said: Wearing silk and gold has been made unlawful for the males of my Ummah and lawful for their females.

Yahya said that he heard Malik say, "I disapprove of youths wearing any gold because I heard that the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, forbade wearing gold rings, and I disapprove of it for males old or young."

The Prophet forbade us to drink out of gold and silver vessels, or eat in it, and also forbade the wearing of silk.
 
Girls:
Here are two Ayahs from the Qur'an that Allah talks and tells us how and what to wear.

                           

“And tell the believing women to lower their gaze (from looking at forbidden things), and protect their private parts (from illegal sexual acts) and not to show off their adornment except only that which is apparent, and to draw their outer garment over their bosoms” [TMQ An-Nur: 31].

                       

O Prophet! Tell your wives and your daughters and the women of the believers to draw their cloaks (veils) all over their bodies. That will be better, that they should be known (as free respectable women) so as not to be annoyed. And Allah is Ever Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful”  [TMQ Al-Ahzab: 59].

Here is a saying of the Prophet:

In one tradition, the Prophet Muhammad is quoted as saying: ...If the woman reaches the age of puberty, no part of her body should be seen but this --- and he pointed to his face and hands.

Here is some simple facts about proper clothing:

1) Clothing must cover the entire body, with the exception of the face and the hands.

2) The clothing should not be form fitting, sheer or so eye-catching as to attract undue attention or reveal the shape of the body.

3) Clothing cannot be similar to male clothing or to the distinctive clothing worn by people of other faiths.

4) Clothing must not suggest fame or status.
