Pearl of Wisdom

'One year I went on pilgrimage with al-Sadiq (AS). When his mount came to the place of ihram, whenever he intended to say labbayka [here I am ...] his voice would cut off in his throat, and he nearly fell off his mount. So I said to him, ?O son of the Prophet, say it, for you must say it', to which he replied, ?O Ibn Abi 'Amir, how can I dare say: 'I am here O Allah! I am here' whilst I fear lest he say, 'No labbayka and no welcome for you!'

Question : #474 Category: Dress & Clothing
Subject: wearning shorts in public, Sistani
Question: What is Sayed Sistani's ruling on men wearing shorts in public?
Answer: There is a verse in the Qur'an (24:30) that addresses the key aspects of physical modesty for men.

"Say to the believing men that they cast down their looks and guard their private parts; that is purer for them; surely Allah is aware of what they do."

Men are to cover a signifant amount (naval to knee is recommended) although there isn't a specific ruling from the Marja's on this.

That said, Imam Sajad (as) states that clothing should be respectable - so relative to the envionrment whereas wearing shorts or short sleeve shirts in the Muslim world may be considered disrespectable compared to being dressed like that in the Western countries during Summer.
