bermuda-shorts for men acceptable during ramadan????

Hello again

I have also read all the recent posts but I have a specific query about clothing during ramadan.

Could be acceptable a man to wear bermuda-shorts (a little above the knees) in the mall, city etc during the day?

Thank you in advance

Regards

Joan

Yes.

I certainly intend to anyway as I usually do, it wouldn't even occur to me not to.

This is a hot topic within UAE at present and there are lots of interpretations as to what is acceptable. But I would say any shorts (showing the knees) is suitable for beachwear only (for men and women). In Ramadan people get more sensitive about these things.

This Twitter thread might be of interest.

If anyone wants to get offended by my sexy knee and hint of juicy thigh then that's their problem as far as I'm concerned.

Slim I think you need to change your profile photo to show proof of those juicy thighs - though of course we won't know if they are yours or not!

Hi

I think it's OK as long you don't eat them ;-))

Been many times during ramadan and at other times of the year too. No problem whatsoever just dressing as you ordinarily would, Ramadan doesn't have that much of an effect on this sort of thing especially as so many tourists are there. And it will be far too hot/humid to wear full length trousers unless linens.
