Hadith Explanation

Comfortable in your Gender

It was narrated from Ibn Abbas that the Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) cursed women who imitate men and men who imitate women." [Abu Dawud - graded sahih]

Another hadith states, "The Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) cursed men who wear women's clothes and women who wear men's clothes." [Abu Dawud - graded sahih]

Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) has made two distinct beautiful genders. Why try to merge them into one? Why try to alter what Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) has created? Each has its own roles to fulfill, while the reward of Jannah is the same for both. Thank Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) by not wearing unisex clothes and displaying unisex mannerisms, but by humbly celebrating how Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) has made you. This is thankfulness due to Allah.
