Q.AMONG THESE WHAT WAS PROPHET MOHAMMED’S (MAY ALLAH PEACE BE UPON HIM)SUNNATH DRESSINGKANDOORA(NORMALLY ARABIC WEARS,BUT NOT LENGTHY)KURTHA PYJAAMA(NORMALLY PAKISTANIS AND INDIAN WEARS)NORMAL SHIRT AND LUNGI/PYJAMAAPLEASE GUIDE ME

 

In the Name of Allah, the Most Merciful, the Most Compassionate:There is no Sunnah with regards to dress. The Prophet peace and blessings be upon him used to wear the clothes of his people, the Arabs of Hijaz, and would occasionally wear clothes gifted to him from other regions such as Yemen.For this reason the scholars agree that it is not Sunnah to wear specific clothes; rather it is a requirement to wear clothes that fulfill certain criteria, namely:1. They cover the ‘awra.2. They do not outline the private parts due to being tight.3. They are not transparent such that one can see the ‘awra underneath.4. They are not clothes that are worn to display extravagant wealth.Any clothes that fulfill these criteria are considered to fulfill the Sunnah requirements of clothing, whether they are the clothes of the Arabs today, or the clothes worn by Pakistanis or Indians, or any other clothes for that matter.Having said that, the Prophet peace and blessings be upon him, used to wear a rida’ (cloak) and wizar (loincloth) most of the time, similar to the clothing worn in Ihram, and would on occasion wear a qamees, which is a long shirt to below the knees with buttons at the neckline and loose sleeves. He would also sometimes wear a cloak he had received from Yemen. He,peace and blessing be upon him,would always cover his head if he left his house, usually with a turban.

And Allah knows best.

Answer

In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

The statement that there is no Sunnah clothing is incorrect. The attached article http://www.askimam.org/public/question_detail/34459 clearly explains Sunnah clothing.

To emulate the Sunnah of Rasulullah صلي الله عليه وسلم is an integral part of Deen. Consider the following,

قُلْ إِنْ كُنْتُمْ تُحِبُّونَ اللَّهَ فَاتَّبِعُونِي يُحْبِبْكُمُ اللَّهُ وَيَغْفِرْ لَكُمْ ذُنُوبَكُمْ وَاللَّهُ غَفُورٌ رَحِيم

Say (O Muhammad SAW to mankind): “If you (really) love Allah then follow me (i.e. accept Islamic Monotheism, follow the Quran and the Sunnah), Allah will love you and forgive you of your sins. And Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.” [1] [Surah Aali-Imran: 31]

If a person wants the closeness of Allah, he has to follow the Sunnah.

عن العرباض بن سارية ، قال : صلى لنا رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم صلاة الصبح ، ثم أقبل علينا فوعظنا موعظة وجلت منها القلوب وذرفت منها العيون ، فقلنا : يا رسول الله كأنها موعظة مودع فأوصنا ، قال : ” أوصيكم بتقوى الله ، والسمع والطاعة وإن أمر عليكم عبد حبشي ، فإنه من يعش منكم فسيرى اختلافا كثيرا ، فعليكم بسنتي ، وسنة الخلفاء الراشدين المهديين عضوا عليها بالنواجذ ، وإياكم ومحدثات الأمور ، فإن كل بدعة ضلالة 

‘Irbad bin Sariyah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: One day the Messenger of Allah () delivered us a very eloquent Khutbah on account of which the hearts were frightened and the eyes shed tears. A man said: “O Prophet of Allah, this is as if it were a parting advice. So advise us”. He () said, “I admonish you to fear Allah, to listen and obey even if an Abyssinian slave is appointed as your leader. Because whosoever among you shall live after me, will see much discord. So hold fast to my Sunnah and the examples of the Rightly- Guided Caliphs who will come after me. Adhere to them and hold to it fast. Beware of new things (in Deen) because every Bid’ah is a misguidance”. [Abu Dawood and At- Tirmithi].

تفسير ابن كثير ت سلامة (2/ 32)[1]

{قُلْ إِنْ كُنْتُمْ تُحِبُّونَ اللَّهَ فَاتَّبِعُونِي يُحْبِبْكُمُ اللَّهُ وَيَغْفِرْ لَكُمْ ذُنُوبَكُمْ وَاللَّهُ غَفُورٌ رَحِيمٌ (31) قُلْ أَطِيعُوا اللَّهَ وَالرَّسُولَ فَإِنْ تَوَلَّوْا فَإِنَّ اللَّهَ لَا يُحِبُّ الْكَافِرِينَ (32)}

هَذِهِ الْآيَةُ الْكَرِيمَةُ حَاكِمَةٌ عَلَى كُلِّ مَنِ ادَّعَى مَحَبَّةَ اللَّهِ، وَلَيْسَ هُوَ عَلَى الطَّرِيقَةِ الْمُحَمَّدِيَّةِ فَإِنَّهُ كَاذِبٌ فِي دَعْوَاهُ فِي نَفْسِ الْأَمْرِ، حَتَّى يَتَّبِعَ الشَّرْعَ الْمُحَمَّدِيَّ وَالدِّينَ النَّبَوِيَّ فِي جَمِيعِ أَقْوَالِهِ وَأَحْوَالِهِ، كَمَا ثَبَتَ فِي الصَّحِيحِ عَنْ رَسُولِ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ أَنَّهُ قَالَ: “مَنْ عَمِلَ عَمَلا لَيْسَ عَلَيْهِ أمْرُنَا فَهُوَ رَدُّ” وَلِهَذَا قَالَ: {قُلْ إِنْ كُنْتُمْ تُحِبُّونَ اللَّهَ فَاتَّبِعُونِي يُحْبِبْكُمُ اللَّهُ} أَيْ: يَحْصُلُ لَكُمْ فَوْقَ مَا طَلَبْتُمْ مِنْ مَحَبَّتِكُمْ إِيَّاهُ، وَهُوَ مَحَبَّتُهُ إِيَّاكُمْ، وَهُوَ أَعْظَمُ مِنَ الْأَوَّلِ، كَمَا قَالَ بَعْضُ الْحُكَمَاءِ الْعُلَمَاءِ: لَيْسَ الشَّأْنُ أَنْ تُحِبّ، إِنَّمَا الشَّأْنُ أَنْ تُحَبّ وَقَالَ الْحَسَنُ الْبَصْرِيُّ وَغَيْرُهُ مِنَ السَّلَفِ: زَعَمَ قَوْمٌ أَنَّهُمْ يُحِبُّونَ اللَّهَ فَابْتَلَاهُمُ اللَّهُ بِهَذِهِ الْآيَةِ، فَقَالَ: {قُلْ إِنْ كُنْتُمْ تُحِبُّونَ اللَّهَ فَاتَّبِعُونِي يُحْبِبْكُمُ اللَّهُ} .

وَقَدْ قَالَ ابْنُ أَبِي حَاتِمٍ: حَدَّثَنَا أَبِي، حَدَّثَنَا عَلِيُّ بْنُ مُحَمَّدٍ الطَّنافِسي، حَدَّثَنَا عُبَيْدُ اللَّهِ بْنُ مُوسَى عَنْ عَبْدِ الْأَعْلَى بْنِ أَعْيَنَ، عَنْ يَحْيَى بْنِ أَبِي كَثِيرٍ، عَنْ عُرْوَةَ، عَنْ عَائِشَةَ، رَضِيَ اللَّهُ عَنْهَا، قَالَتْ: قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ: “وَهَلِ الدِّينُ إِلَّا الْحُبُّ والْبُغْضُ؟ قَالَ اللَّهُ تَعَالَى: {قُلْ إِنْ كُنْتُمْ تُحِبُّونَ اللَّهَ فَاتَّبِعُونِي يُحْبِبْكُمُ اللَّهُ}) .

ثُمَّ قَالَ: {وَيَغْفِرْ لَكُمْ ذُنُوبَكُمْ وَاللَّهُ غَفُورٌ رَحِيمٌ} أَيْ: بِاتِّبَاعِكُمْ لِلرَّسُولِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ يَحْصُلُ لَكُمْ هَذَا كُلُّهُ بِبَرَكَةِ سِفَارَتِهِ.

ثُمَّ قَالَ آمِرًا لِكُلِّ أَحَدٍ مِنْ خَاصٍّ وَعَامٍّ: {قُلْ أَطِيعُوا اللَّهَ وَالرَّسُولَ فَإِنْ تَوَلَّوْا} أَيْ: خَالَفُوا عَنْ أَمْرِهِ {فَإِنَّ اللَّهَ لَا يُحِبُّ الْكَافِرِينَ} فَدَلَّ عَلَى أَنَّ مُخَالَفَتَهُ فِي الطَّرِيقَةِ كُفْرٌ، وَاللَّهُ لَا يُحِبُّ مَنِ اتَّصَفَ بِذَلِكَ، وَإِنِ ادَّعَى وَزَعَمَ فِي نَفْسِهِ أَنَّهُ يُحِبُّ لِلَّهِ وَيَتَقَرَّبُ إِلَيْهِ، حَتَّى يُتَابِعَ الرَّسُولَ النَّبِيَّ الْأُمِّيَّ خَاتَمَ الرُّسُلِ، وَرَسُولَ اللَّهِ إِلَى جَمِيعِ الثَّقَلَيْنِ الْجِنِّ وَالْإِنْسِ (2) الَّذِي لَوْ كَانَ الْأَنْبِيَاءُ -بَلِ الْمُرْسَلُونَ، بَلْ أُولُو الْعَزْمِ مِنْهُمْ-فِي زَمَانِهِ لَمَا وَسِعَهُمْ إِلَّا اتِّبَاعُهُ، وَالدُّخُولُ فِي طَاعَتِهِ، وَاتِّبَاعُ شَرِيعَتِهِ،
