Superhero suits

Fatwaa ID: 1127

Assalamualykum wrwb Mufti Saheb

What is the ruling on a child wearing batman/superman/spiderman/superhero suit as a toy/play time activity?

In the Name of Allaah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salaamu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullaahi wa-barakaatuh.

We have observed the Spiderman, Superman and Batman suits. It is permissible for children to wear them as playtime activity. However, one should try to get outfits that are loose. It is important to nurture the ethics of clothing from a young age.

That being said, the parents should also ensure that these “superheroes” remain only for partial entertainment. It should not be such that they are completely engrossed with this. This should be educated about their true heroes as well.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best.
