Ruling on wearing neckties


What is the ruling on women wearing neckties, knowing that they are made from fabrics that are only for women?


Praise be to Allah.

I do not think that women should wear neckties, since we have some reservations about men wearing them – so how about women?

With regard to men, there are reservations about them wearing neckties, but nowadays we see many people wearing them, especially some employees in some departments. I hope that men feel uncomfortable about wearing them, but in the case of women, they should definitely not wear them.
