Fatwa - Wearing cycling shorts

Q: Is it permissible for men to wear cycling shorts that cover the satr?



Cycling shorts are generally very tight and expose the shape of ones body, hence it is not permissible for one to wear such cycling shorts. Loose clothing that does not expose the shape of ones body should be adopted and it is experienced in many parts of the world that wearing loose clothing will not drastically hinder one's cycling.
