We often see the hijab for women being addressed by scholars as well as other people e.g. post on social media point out the correct and incorrect hijab.
Unfortunately, the same attention is not given when it come to the j=hijab for men.
I understand that the hijab's purpose is to cover the 'awrah' which for a female is considered to be head to toe except her hands, face and feet. Now, the awrah for men considerably less as it only includes a section of the body which is from the navel to the knee.
My question is that why are we always told that women are not wearing the correct hijab because hijab does not only mean to cover the hair, but it also means to cover the entire body with a THICK, LOOSE FITTING garment which does not show the shape of the body such as an abaya or jilbab.
However, the material and shape of clothing for men is never spoken of. Shouldn't men also have to wear a thick and loose fitting garment even if it is just from navel to knee. As the shape of that area too should not be shown as it is considered the awrah? So this should mean jeans, trousers, jogging bottoms etc should not be worn in-front of non mahrams just like women should not wear short or tight clothes?
Now even the Qur'an does not say word for word that women should wear hijab but rather that the women of Ansar covered their chests and it was the norm to cover their hair at the time. The Qur'an does however say we should follow the examples of the Prophet (saw) and we know that he always wore loose long garments (thawbs) so shouldn't this be how Muslim men should really cover all the time not just Friday prayer?
