Wearing a kurta

Q: Is wearing the kurta Sunnah? What is the sunnah method of wearing clothes?

A: The kurta conforms to the Sunnah libaas. It  was the clothing of the pious in all eras of Islam from the time of Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam). It is reported in Sunan Tirmizi that from all clothing, the kurta was most beloved to Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam). When wearing clothes, then one should commence wearing the clothing from the right side, and when removing clothes, then one should remove the clothing from the left side.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
