people tend to wear lighter coloured clothes in warm weather. In saudi arabia, the women must overheat wearing black all the time. Poor things.

yea , there is no Hadith or verse says to women to wear black
the Iranian women when the came to Saudi Arabia they wear another colors
but i think it just because we take it from our parents and because the women like this color

When I was about 3 years old, I knew that white was transparent, and black not (depend on thickness and material).

As for women hijab and other related issues, read more about it on www.islamonline.net before you discuss it (as I know someone will). Another advice, dont google "hate islam", "terrorists islam" or similar, but instead ask big muslim scholars and muftis, like Omar AbdulKafi, Ramadan Boti, Kaftaro, Amr Khaled (for those who dont know anything about Islam except what they hear about terrorists who relates themself to islam), Abdullah Beitanouny and Qaradawi.

listen:

they just choose anything muslims do. then, they say: it is bad. then, Oh, It is the islam which forced them. SO, Islam is bad. this is the result they want.

if you want to make them happy say: Islam is bad.

and the will not ask you why. the important thing is: Islam is bad.

But of course Islam is bad, no doubt whatsoever. Now will you debate logically or will you try to deflect the topic in discussion.

A little known science fact.

White reflects light while black absorbs light, and so white is better in the sun.

But black radiates heat better than white and so is better in the shade.

Why do muslim women wear black?

They don't have to. the clothing comes in all sorts of colors and designs. Here one web site. Search the web you will find many places that sell Islamic clothing. Some of it is very pretty.

I think they wear black because the black abayas is live an over coat. Something to wear over your cloths. They can be found for low cost everywhere. The kind of thing that every woman has to grab quickly when she has to go outside. Black is does not show dirt, etc. It's the same reason why when I was a child in Europe the woman mostly war black and gray skirts and sweaters. It' everyday clothing.

You are right, the topic has no meaning Islamically, but it is based on observation of the Muslims in Saudi Arabia, can you deny this premise ?. No, I don't think so. So please debate logically and disprove this accusation.

Dear Omar,

I to agree that Islamically this is meaningless, because I have read your scriptures and I never found anything in the hadiths also. But the question still remains, why the women wear black and men wear white in Saudi Arabia, even though this has nothing to do with Islam, Why omar ?

What are U trying to make this a racist statement. And U said the woman wearing black means they are the devil. WTF? So what Ur implying that people with dark skin are devils??? By the way Islamic woman can wear any coloured cloths that they want to wear. I'd say its more of a fashion thing since black coloured cloths seems to be popular.

honostly, you are the only christian that I noticed that you are honost and you don't twist the facts to say at the end: Islam is bad.

although, it is bad in your opinion
SO, let's talk just to give an information about saudi traditional.

first of all: you have to know that this is a traditional.
and whenever I want to change, I can change.

let's start,

why men wear white?
first: they call it (thub)
secondly; they consider it as a formal clothes.

when they wear white (thub)?
1- they don't wear it at home
2- they wear it when they get out from house.
3- when they visit their relatives
4- when the attend a wedding party
5- if he was a groom
6- when they go to work.
