Sunnats and Aadaab of Clothing – Part 8

hangers1. One should not wear tattered and torn clothing.

2. If Allah Ta’ala has provided a person with wealth, then out of shukr to Allah Ta’ala he should wear clothing of a good quality. However, if one has not been blessed with wealth, then he should wear clothing according to his means.

وعن عمرو بن شعيب عن أبيه عن جده قال : قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم : إن الله يحب أن يرى أثر نعمته على عبده. (ترمذي رقم 2819)

Hadhrat Abdullah bin Amr (Radhiyallahu Anhu) reports that Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said: “Certainly Allah Ta’ala loves to see the signs of His bounties on His servants.”

عن أبى الأحوص عن أبيه قال أتيت النبى صلى الله عليه وسلم فى ثوب دون فقال: ألك مال. قال نعم. قال: من أى المال. قال قد أتانى الله من الإبل والغنم والخيل والرقيق. قال فإذا أتاك الله مالا فلير أثر نعمة الله عليك وكرامته (ابو داود 4065)

Abul Ahwas reports from his father: “I went to Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) while I was wearing inferior quality clothing. He asked me: “Do you possess wealth?” I replied in the affirmative. He asked: “From which types of wealth?” I replied, “Allah Ta’ala has blessed me with camels, horses and slaves. Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) then said: “When Allah Ta’ala has blessed you with wealth, then the signs of the bounty of Allah Ta’ala upon you and His generosity should be seen.”

3. There is no harm in one wearing good clothing, however one should refrain from wastage and extravagance, and wearing clothing for show.

عن عمرو بن شعيب عن أبيه عن جده قال قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه و سلم : كلوا وتصدقوا والبسوا في غير إسراف ولا مخيلة (نسائي رقم 2559)

Hadhrat Abdullah bin Amr (Radhiyallahu Anhu) reports that Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said: “Eat, spend in charity and adorn yourself with clothing, but do not waste nor do things for show.”

وقال ابن عباس كل ما شئت والبس ما شئت ما أخطأتك اثنتان سرف أو مخيلة (بخاري في ترجمة الباب)

It is reported that Hadhrat ibn Abbaas (Radhiyallahu Anhu) said: “Eat what you wish and wear what you wish, as long as you refrain from two things; wastage and show.”
