Wearing a necktie

CategoriesMiscellaneous [618]

 

Assalam-u-alaykum wa-rahamatullahi wa-barakatuhu,
 Respected Ulama, what is the ijtihad of Ulama on wearing a necktie.
 Wassalam  

 

In the name of Allah, the most Beneficent, the most Merciful.

 

Answer

 

The permissibility or impermissibility of wearing a necktie depends on whether it is a symbol or something specific with the Christian faith or not.

 

Mufti Taqi Usmaani was of the view that the tie does not resemble a feature of the Christian Faith, whilst other scholars are of the opinion it does, thus, wherever there is a pressing need to wear it like at work, it will be permissible to wear, however in normal circumstances it is best to avoid it.
