It is reported from Hadhrat ibn Abbaas (radhiyallahu anhuma) that Nabi (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) had cursed those men that imitate women (in their dressing and appearance), and those women that imitate men (in their dressing and appearance). It is reported that on one occasion a woman passed by Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) carrying a bow around her neck (in the spirit to imitate the soldiers of Deen). Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) observing this scene, said “May Allah’s curse fall on those men that imitate women and those women that imitate men in their ways.”

عن صالح بن أبي حسان قال : سمعت سعيد بن المسيب يقول إن الله طيب يحب الطيب نظيف يحب النظافة كريم يحب الكرم جواد يحب الجود فنظفوا أراه قال أفنيتكم ولا تشبهوا باليهود قال فذكرت ذلك لمهاجر بن مسمار فقال حدثنيه عامر بن سعد بن أبي وقاص عن أبيه عن النبي صلى الله عليه و سلم مثله إلا أنه قال نظفوا أفنيتكم قال أبو عيسى هذا حديث غريب و خالد بن إلياس يضعف.

Allah Ta’ala is kind and loves kindness. Allah Ta’ala is generous and loves generosity. Hence keep the courtyards of your homes clean and do not reassemble the Jews (in their untidiness).
