The purpose of clothing is to prevent fitnah (temptation), and this can only be achieved if clothes are wide and loose (hijaab). Tight clothes, even if they conceal the colour of the skin, still describe the size and shape of the body or part of it, and create a vivid image in the minds of men.

In many Muslim countries around the world people build Masjids on the graves of pious people, these are sometimes called "Dargah" or "Mazar" etc. And people go to those places and ask the dead person to give them a child or whatever they need.

Islam doesn’t merely disapprove homosexuality, it terms it as a vile and evil sin that is considered worse than fornication and adultery and is punishable by stoning to death.
