Men and women's clothing

Posted in Oman forum

Why do the men wear white robes and the women wear black robes in Oman? I understand that it's to keep cooler, but why the difference in colors? White reflects light and is cooler, while black absorbs light and is hotter. What are they trying to do to the poor women over there, roast them alive?

    I'm sorry, I think you took my meaning of "poor women" a little too seriously. It just seems that they would be hotter in black than white. So men can wear black, too? Do many men do?

    i just likes to ask you, are you coming here in this web to ask for info or you tring to attack muslim country or muslim people?????
    because all your questions in , always attacks a our ways of life in a country that might be feel its in middle of nowhere!!!!!!

    in the end of all of this i will answers your questions....

    1- women wear black robes : this dress is one of the famous a dress in gulf area, why its black because its the only color that matchh with it, so if you use red or green , its will not match. in same times girls always tring to improve it by add a new fashion styles( to be moderan) . but its will never change the color.( will be same : black)

    in same times , women have the right here to wear as they want but they always try to follow the religion that (you cannot understand)

    2-men while black absorbs: this is the natural dress in oman and gulf area , even in some other countries in middle east and asia(some people are using it).
    but the gulf area we waer it all the time (work time i mean, day time also) because we dont use its when we play football, sleep,inside the house.
    its the traditional and the most wearing clothe in gulf area, in same time can be used with other color because its match with men. its not always white.(can be black) as same as women.

    in the last of my asnwers of your questions , i want to say some words about poor women??????? what you mean by poor women?
    we respect women as much as in other countries in world.
    the poor women and let me say here in oman the most success than men in (business, education, monthly income)
    yah most in the university and lets say in sultan qaboos university its full of girls why? because the girls are much smart than guys here.. and this is truth that we cannot hide.
    nowadays women earn monthly income more than any men here, why?? because they are more educated then men.

    the poor women as you thinks in oman role:

    4 Ministries : 1-high education ministry, 2-tourism ministry, 3- local traditional ministry and in last 4- local society ministry.

    so are they poor as you think???????

    in the end in last two years here in oman, (his majesty sutlan qaboos the sultan of oman )give alot of women the right of living a life as men such as:
    1- 500 full schoolershipp from his majesty.
    2-give a right to won a land from the government by be only government Official paper fee.
    3-have the right to have jobs as men with same payment.
    4-even women can be in army , police and security officers(that was only job for men).

    do you things really our women are poor ? nice jok

    alllLLLLLLLLLLL the best
