Religion and Fashion

Wasif Chudhary
Even a Muslim child
Here is West

According to Wikipedia,Fashion is a general term for a currently popular style or practice, especially in clothing, foot wear, or accessories. The religion has a key role in the way of fashion.
Historically, fashion and religion have had an uneasy relationship; there have been some nasty clashes of religious and secular values with respect to fashion and the use of religious iconography recently.
If we consider Islam in this regard, the Muslims are one of the modern civilization of the world but their is a huge difference between the fashion style of the Muslims and the People of other Religions. What is the reason behind this, the reason is that every religion has kept its followers in some sort of boundaries, and the Muslims follow the teachings of their religion, But unfortunately the followers of other religions do not.
Islam does not allow its followers whether men or women, to wear such kind of clothes which does not cover their body completely. The women should have to cover their all body properly so that she could hide herself from the sight of strangers.
On the other hand we see that the people of other religions, especially Christians and Jews does not obey the teachings of their respective religions. They wear those clothes which does not cover their body completely. They use such sort of cosmetics which attracts others, they use perfumes and many other things which are not allowed in any of the respective religions.
So the relationship between Religion and Fashion is very deep.
