Haji Syed, you write,

>>Yes clothing is important in every religion, i don't know about you, well as you have born totally nude and every child too, you should respect the way it is.<<

I pointed out to you the case of the Naga Sadhus and Jain Munis who are very religious and go about naked. Clothing is of no importance to them.

>>Clothing also bring respect and nudity disrespect, wearing full also give respect to others and if one be nude in front of others then other will think that he or she does not respect us,…<<

The tribes of Andaman and Nicobar islands move aroud bare-breasted and practically naked. They are respected in their society. In Kerala until recently women of some castes moved around bare breasted without provoking any sniggers or public outcry. They were respected. It is only those with closed or perverted minds who disrespect nudity, our natural state.

>> it dosn't make any difference wether you like it or not, we Muslims are proud to wear full clothes, ..<<

Muslims are welcome to swaddle themselves in whatever they like. But do not enforce it on others or disrespect people who do not wear any.

>>as Adam & Eve also wore clothes after they eat an apple, this means that Allah wants every human being should wear clothes.<<

Did eating an apple open their eyes to their nakedness or did they not have sex organs before they ate the fruit? And why did Allah wait till Satan enticed them to eat an apple before He decided that nakedness is haram?

>> I think now you must have understood that why we should wear full clothes.<<

What I have understood is that eating an apple made Adam and Eve realize they had sex organs which they immediately covered up with leaves. LOL
