Hadith Question

Q: I had a question regarding one narration. Did the prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) say that we should wear clothes like the people of the time? Like dress like them? If yes then what does this hadith mean?


A: We have not come across this hadeeth. In fact, there are ahaadeeth to the contrary.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.

عن سلمة بن الأكوع قال : قلت : يا رسول الله إني رجل أصيد أفأصلي في القميص الواحد ؟ قال : نعم وازرره ولو بشوكة ” . رواه أبو داود وروى النسائي نحوه (مشكاة #760)
