|The Ruling of Wearing a White dress by the Bride on the night of her wedding|
al-Allaamah 'Abdullaah ibn Humaid (rahimahullaah)
Has it been mentioned in any of the narrations of the Salafu Saalih (pious predecessors) ; anything regarding the bride - wearing a white dress - on the night of her wedding ? Or is this act that many muslims are upon today , nothing but a bid'ah (innovation) and a blind following of the people of the west and their customs ? JazakaAllaahu khayr.
If the white dress has characteristics (similar) of the male dress , then it is not permissible for a woman to wear it.
This is because it will be resemblance to the men. And the Prophet (sallahAllaahu 'alayhi wasallam) has said :
'Allaah has cursed the female who tries to resemble the men and the men who try to resemble the women' . 1
But If it is not like the dress of men , then theirs is no problem with this .
(Similarly there is no problem) also with the dress having red or yellow spots or what is like this.
And Allaah knows best.
Shaykh 'Abdullaah ibn Humaid (rahimahullaah)
