The eminent Muslim scholar and renowned Da`iyah, Sheikh `Abdel Khaliq Hasan Ash-Shareef, states: “What is prohibited is wearing pure (natural) silk for men. Using pure silk rugs on the floor or for decorating the walls or using silk bed sheets is not prohibited. However, it is dislikable (makruh) to use pure and natural silk in such things as it includes some sort of extravagance.”
