Ruling on wearing a garment made of denim

Dear Brothers & Sisters,
As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
If the fabric known as denim is made into a garment that is suitable for a Muslim woman, is it haraam to wear it, and is that an imitation of the kuffaar?.
(There may be some grammatical and spelling errors in the above statement. The forum does not change anything from questions, comments and statements received from our readers for circulation in confidentiality.)

Praise be to Allaah.

What is meant by imitation of the kuffaar is when a person does something to be or look like them. If this fabric or any other kind of fabric is used in ways that resemble the clothing of the kuffaar, then this comes under the heading of imitation. But if the clothes of the kuffaar are made out of this fabric but it is used in another way that is distinct from the clothing of the kuffaar, there is nothing wrong with it, so long as it is done differently from the kuffaar, even if they are well known for using this fabric, so long as it is worn in a way that differs from the way they wear it. 

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
