Silk clothes

Question 1: How is it for men to wear silk clothes?

Answer: It is stated in Bahar-e-Shari’at: Silk clothes are Haram for men. It is Haram in both cases whether or not there is another cloth between the body and the clothes. On the occasion of a battle, only silk clothes are Haram. However, if warp is cotton and woof is silk, it is permissible to wear on the occasion of battle and if warp is silk and woof is cotton, so it is permissible for everyone on every occasion. (Bahar-e-Shari’at, vol. 3, pp. 410) The warp i.e. the set of yarns placed lengthwise in the loom, crossed by and interlaced with the woof, and forming the lengthwise threads in a woven fabric. (Feeroz-ul-Lughat, pp. 364) and woof is opposite to it.
