Abstract

The purpose of this research is to provide a critical review of the perception that a pleasing personality and dress or attire has a key role in success; that your attire decides how people would deal you. This paper is actually a comparative study of Western and Islamic concepts about dressing well. It is assumed and generally accepted that “Dressing well” and having a pleasing personality as a key to success” is a concept introduced by West. But we see that Islam advocates refining one’s personality, beauty and enhancement of personal style. Prophet Muhammad ﷺ said “Allah is beautiful and likes beauty.” Ibn Taymiyyah said that the beauty Allah likes includes seemly clothing (along with other assemblage on body). Hence it could be said that Allah likes all beautiful things. Therefore a Muslim ought to be recognize by neat dress, cleanliness and graceful appearance. Once, during a journey, Prophet Muhammad ﷺ directed his companions by saying “You are on your way to meet your brothers, wear handsome garb and make right your riding so you appear distinct among people as a Fleck (on a beautiful face]. Allah does not like roughness nor rough manners.” So in the light of authentic Islamic sources it is clear that Qur’ān and Sunnah encourages refinement of personality, dressing well, special attention on one’s attire. So the concept of having a pleasing personality is truly an Islamic concept and not a Western one.
