The only exception to this is a man in the presence of his wife.Finally, it is recommended for men not to wear garments that fall below the ankles.Some of the conditions are the same as the conditions for woman but others relate particularly to men.The scholars of Islam overwhelmingly agree that for men everything between the navel and the knees (including the knees) must be covered in the presence of anybody.They have based these conditions on evidence found in the Quran and the Sunnah.Below are the most well known verses of the Quran and the most well known saying from the Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) concerning the subject of hijab. Tell your wives and your daughters and the women of the believers to draw their cloaks (veils) all over their bodies.The word used most often in regard to covering is hijab.All qualified Muslim scholars throughout the history of Islam agree that fulfilling the conditions of the dress code is an obligation on all Muslim men and women.
However, to fully implement the Islamic dress code it is important to understand a number of other situations in which awrah becomes important. When a woman is alone with her husband she is permitted to wear any clothing that pleases them both.
This is not the case in Islam, where modesty is seen as a sign of respect for oneself and others.
The that every human being is born with is seen as something to be treasured.
To this end Islam has a dress code for both women and men.
Its purpose is to protect the society as a whole and promote modest dressing and behaviour.
