Wearing a Neck Tie

Q: Is it permissible to wear a neck tie made of silk. The company I work for requires all males to wear a tie.

A. A Muslim should not wear a tie at all.

Wearing of silk is forbidden for Muslim males. It is mentioned in a Hadeeth that whoever wears silk in this world will be deprived of wearing it in the hereafter. (Ibni Maajah V2 P1187)

If your company forces you to wear a tie, then rather use one that is made of other fabric besides silk.
