Upholding The Sunnah Attire

Question: A man’s been trying hard for a job for sometime. He attends interviews with his kurta, adamantly maintaining that success lies in following the dress of Nabi Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam, even if that means he has to go hungry, yet his spouse & family implicate that he is affecting his chances of obtaining a job because of the impression it creates. What advice would you tender to assist the man in this case & give him strength from the inevitable doubts created in his mind by his family?

Assalamu Alikum,

This person should continue to make Dua to Allah to keep him firm upon what he is doing in attiring himself in accordance to the way of the Prophet (s.a.w).  He should understand that no matter what is the situation at present, the Qadr of Allah will come to pass, and it will never happen that  Allah will deprive this person from a Halaal earning due to him wanting to follow the Sunnah of the Prophet (s.a.w). Let the person keep on trying while making Dua to Allah to give him an acceptable job.

And Allah Knows Best.
