Dress Of Men And Women During Hajj. by Taamas111 (m): 5:19pm on January 12

During the pilgrimage in Makkah, men are
dressed in white and women are dressed in
black, I would like to know why exactly men
are dressed in white and women in black?

All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord of the
Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of
worship except Allah, and that Muhammad
is His Slave and Messenger.
It is desirable for a man to cover himself
with two white clothes for Ihraam. Ibn
'Abbaas, may Allah be pleased with him,
narrated that the Prophet said: "Wear
white clothes as it is the best color, and
enshroud your dead in it. " [Ahmad]
Some scholars are of the view that this is the
desirable color for women as well. However,
we do not know of any scholar who is of the
view that it is desirable for a woman to be
dressed in black for her Ihraam. Indeed
many women wear black clothes for Ihraam
as it is a habit in their country to wear black
clothes outside the house. Anyway, black
dress is far from being beautiful or
attractive, and is thus recommended in
general for women of wear.

Allah Knows best.
