Q: What colours are associated with Islam?

A.
If you are referring to clothing, white, green and black have been mentioned. All colours are permitted in Islam. A man is not allowed to wear bright colours such as bright red, maroon, orange and bright yellow (Hadeeth in Bukhaari), but permissible for women. There is no colour that is associated with Islam as a salient feature or trait.
