The idea of Muslims wearing suits and ties comes up in social media every once in a while. When it does it usually is due to responses to a fatwa issued by various clerics who have a following to cater to and a need to gain some prestige. I would have thought that the desire for prestige is also a desire for power and as this article makes plain, the wearing of a suit can actually have an effect on the mindset of those who wear formal attire. They can start to feel powerful thus changing the way they look at the world. Since so many Muslim clerics want power and prestige then why would any of them want to ban the wearing of suits and ties? Besides that many of them actually do wear suits and ties. Just look at any photo of members of C.A.I.R. for example.
