Men and women wearing silk

Q 2: Is it Haram (prohibited) for both men and women to wear silk clothes?

A: It is absolutely Halal (lawful) for women to wear silk clothes, unlike men who are not permitted to wear silk except for a necessity. An example of this necessity is to be afflicted with itching because of scabies or the like, then it is permissible to wear silk, until the reason for wearing it ends.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
