“Expound on His (S.A.W)’s habits regarding clothing” 

No special importance were given regarding clothing by Nabi (صلى الله عليه و سلم). Whatever was found, He (صلى الله عليه و سلم) would wear. Sometimes it was a plain sheet, sometimes a decorated one from Yemen and sometimes a woolen Jubbah. In short, whatever was attained with halaal wealth would be worn by our Rasoolullah (صلى الله عليه و سلم). 

Most of Rasoolullah (صلى الله عليه و سلم)’s clothing was white and he used to say, “Make your living people wear such clothing (i.e. white) and place your dead ones in it.” (Ibne Majah)

In times of war and peace, Nabi (صلى الله عليه و سلم) would use a tunic made of cotton. Nabi (صلى الله عليه و سلم) had one folded chadâr which he would use. He (صلى الله عليه و سلم) used to say, “I am a slave (of Allah). I wear such clothing which a slave wears.” (Bukhari) 

The king of Akîdar Dawmah once gave as a gift to Nabi (صلى الله عليه و سلم) a Jubbah made of green in which golden buttons were attached. In certain narrations (Muslim) it is mentioned that before the prohibition of men wearing silken clothing, Nabi (صلى الله عليه و سلم) used it one day, then took it out. 

All Nabi (صلى الله عليه و سلم)’s clothing- his kurta, his qabâ (tunic), his shawl, etc- would remain above the ankles, and his lungî would be even higher up, reaching unto half the calf. 

For Jumuah, Nabi (صلى الله عليه و سلم) had two special pieces of clothing which were only worn at the time of Jumuah. After this, it was folded and kept away. 

Nabi (صلى الله عليه و سلم) would use a ring. Sometimes, Rasoolullah (صلى الله عليه و سلم) would go outside and on his ring would be a thread tied to it, the purpose of it being to remind him about some work. The ring was generally worn on Nabi (صلى الله عليه و سلم)’s right hand, but sometimes on his left; on the edges of his fingers. 

With this ring, Nabi (صلى الله عليه و سلم) would place a stamp on letters. This commenced when Nabi (صلى الله عليه و سلم) intended to write letters to the king of Rome. The people said, “These people will not read anyone’s letter as long as there is no stamp on it.” (Bukhari). Thereafter, Nabi (صلى الله عليه و سلم) made the stamp/ring of silver. 

Nabi (صلى الله عليه و سلم) would wear the topî under the amâmah (turban) and also without the amâmah. 

Abdullah ibn Umar (رضى الله عنه) said that that Nabi (صلى الله عليه و سلم) used to wear a white topî. Ibn Abbas (رضى الله عنه) said that Rasoolullah (صلى الله عليه و سلم) had three topîs. One topî was made of white cotton, one was made from a Yemeni shawl and one topî had a covering for the ears. Sometimes, when reading Salaah, he would place it in front.

Nabi (صلى الله عليه و سلم) did not always have an amâmah. He would tie an isâbah (a small piece of cloth like a bandage) on his blessed head and forehead. (Bukhari)

Nabi (صلى الله عليه و سلم)’s blessed practise was that when he wore any clothing, he would commence from the right side, and when removing any garment, Nabi (صلى الله عليه و سلم) would commence removing it from the left side. 

Whenever Nabi (صلى الله عليه و سلم) wore new clothing, then he would give the old clothing to the poor. 

​Don’t forget to recite as much Durood as you can!

Love and Duas,
