Men wearing long stitched skirts as part of the ihraam

Reference: Sharh ‘Umdatil-Fiqh – Tape No.4, Question No.59

Question: What is the ruling regarding [men] wearing what is referred to as a “long skirt” for ihraam – which is completely stitched all around?

Response: This “long skirt” does not constitute [any part of] the ihraam [for men]. The fatwa which has appeared to support its permissibility is incorrect, and the Permanent Committee [for Islaamic Research and Verdicts] has [already] issued a fatwa declaring it not permissible [to be worn as any part of the ihraam for men].
