Ramadan Tip: Living by Islam #4: Sunnah way of wearing

“O children of Adam, We have bestowed upon you clothing to conceal your private parts and as adornment. But the clothing of righteousness – that is best. That is from the signs of Allah that perhaps they will remember.” [1]

Clothes are a blessing of Allah سبحانه و تعالى. They help us to cover ourselves, protect ourselves from the weather, and to beautify ourselves. There are many sunnahs of wearing clothes. We can make our daily ritual of wearing and taking off clothes as Ibadah, by following these sunnahs.

Narrated by ‘Amr bin Shu’aib, from his father, that his grandfather said:
“The Messenger of Allah صلى الله عليه وسلم said,

“Eat and drink. give charity and wear clothes, as long as that does not involve any extravagance or vanity.” [2]

1. Say بسم الله, before starting to dress or undress.

2. Always start from the right side when dressing, and left side when undressing.
Reported by Abu Hurayrah رضی اللہ تعالیٰ عنہ: Messenger of Allah صلى الله عليه وسلم said,

“When you wear your clothes, or perform your wudu, begin with your right side.” [3]

Aisha reported:
“The Messenger of Allah صلى الله عليه وسلم loved to start from the right hand side in his every act; in wearing shoes, in combing (hair), and in performing ablution.” [4]

3. Always dust your shoes, socks, and clothes before wearing, to check if any harmful insects are there.

4. Recite the Masnoon Dua of wearing clothes.

الحمدُ للهِ الّذي كَساني هذا (الثّوب) وَرَزَقَنيه مِنْ غَـيـْرِ حَولٍ مِنّي وَلا قـوّة

(All Praise be to Allah, Who has Clothed me, with this garment, and provided it for me, with no power nor might from myself) [5]

5. Silk and gold have been prohibited for Muslim men.

Narrated by Abu Hurayrah رضی اللہ تعالیٰ عنہ: Allah’s Messenger صلى الله عليه وسلم said,

“Silk dress, and gold are prohibited for the men of my ummah, and are Halaal for the women (of my ummah)” [6]

6. Wear right shoe first, while take left shoe off first.

Narrated by Abu Hurayrah رضی اللہ تعالیٰ عنہ: Allah’s Messenger صلى الله عليه وسلم said,

“If you want to put on your shoes, put on the right shoe first; If you want to take them off, take off the left shoe first. Let the right shoe be the first to be put on, and the last to be taken off.” [7]

Narrated by Abu Hurayrah رضی اللہ تعالیٰ عنہ : Allah’s Messenger صلى الله عليه وسلم said,

“None of you should walk wearing only one shoe; He should either put on both shoes, or put on no shoes, whatsoever.” [8]

Reported by Jabir رضی اللہ تعالیٰ عنہ : Messenger of Allah صلى الله عليه وسلم said,

“When the thong of the shoe of any one of you is cut off, he should not walk with one sandal, until he has got the thong repaired; And he should not walk with one shoe; and he should not eat with his left hand, and should not wrap his cloth round his knees or wrap himself completely, leaving no room for the arms.” [9]

7. Our Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم preferred white colour for clothes. All colours are halaal to wear, but yellow and red have not been liked for the Muslim Men.
Reported by Ali bin Abu Talib رضی اللہ تعالیٰ عنہ:

Messenger of Allah صلى الله عليه وسلم forbade wearing of silk , and yellow clothes, and the gold ring , and the reciting of Quran in the ruku’ (state of kneeling in the prayer) [10]

Narrated by Samurah, that the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم said,

“Wear white clothes, for they are purer and better; and shroud your dead in them.”

8. It has been prohibited to wear long clothes, that drag behind you.

Narrated by Ibn Umar رضی اللہ تعالیٰ عنہ : Messenger of Allah صلى الله عليه وسلم said,

“Whoever arrogantly drags his garment, Allah سبحانه و تعالى, will not look at him, on the Day of Judgement.”

So, Umm Salamah said, “What should the women do with their hems?”
He صلى الله عليه وسلم said, “Slacken them a handspan.”
So, she said, ” Then their feet will be uncovered.”
He صلى الله عليه وسلم said, “Then slacken them a forarm’s length, and do not add to that.” [11]

This shows that women have been allowed to wear long clothes, because they cover them better.

9. Always wear neat, and clean clothes, as cleanliness is half Deen. Our Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم liked his Ummah to dress up in neat and clean clothes, and properly combed up hair.
