    Default Wearing mixed silk?

    Salam Alaikum,

    What is the ruling on wearing mixed silk? For example, if a tie is 60% cotton and 40% silk, is it permissible to wear? If the percentage of silk is a minority in the fabric, does it still fall under the ruling of 'haram'?

    On IslamQA, Shaykh Munajjid said,

    The scholars also allowed men to wear garments containing four fingers width of silk, because of the hadeeth of Umar ibn al-Khattaab (may Allaah be pleased with him) who said that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) forbade the wearing of silk except for an area the width of two fingers, or three or four. (Reported by Muslim, 3/1644).
    What is meant by an area with the width of "four fingers"?

    it is not 4 fingers it is only 2 fingers and it meant like design but not part of the content of the fabric

    the answer from the sheikh made it very clear it is haram to wear it and all the hadeeth indicate that even no mention to the amount which indicate the totality except this hadeeth and here what it said in Fat7 albari



    Narrated Aba 'Uthman An-Nahdi:

    While we were with 'Utba bin Farqad at Adharbijan, there came 'Umar's letter indicating that Allah's Apostle had forbidden the use of silk except this much, then he pointed with his index and middle fingers. To our knowledge, by that he meant embroidery.

    Jazakallah khair. Unfortunately, I cannot read Arabic.

    I am asking this question on behalf of someone else. The confusion is that some consider the definition of "silk" (in terms of fabrics) to mean material that is made from 100% silk, and do not consider material containing a minority of silk to fall under the category of silk fabric.

    Br. Mansoor Ali said:

    Shaykh Suhayb Hasan told me that the Prophet Muhammad, salallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam, was given a clothing that contained a small amount of silk and he wore it. He told me if there is a small amount of silk in the material than it's no problem for men. I asked him the same question as you - 50/50 - and he said it's no longer a minority of the fabric.

    akhee I would be very carefull and stay away from even a dot in the fabric made of silk.

    these is many hadeeth to forbide it and the price is great so just tell the one asked you to stay away from it and remember the prophet PBUH warned us that at the end of days Muslim will make silk halal so let us not be from these people and insha allah Allah will reward you by staying away as the prophet PBUH asked us (to stay away from the grey area) and also (what your heart doesn't feel right with)
