Sunnats and Aadaab of Clothing – Part 7

1. Males should avoid wearing bright colours that resemble the colours of women’s clothing e.g. saffron colours, pink etc.

عن عمرو بن شعيب عن أبيه عن جده قال هبطنا مع رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم من ثنية فالتفت إلي وعلي ريطة مضرجة بالعصفر فقال ما هذه الريطة عليك. فعرفت ما كره فأتيت أهلى وهم يسجرون تنورا لهم فقذفتها فيه ثم أتيته من الغد فقال يا عبد الله ما فعلت الريطة. فأخبرته فقال ألا كسوتها بعض أهلك فإنه لا بأس به للنساء. (ابو داود رقم 4068)

Hadhrat Abdullah bin Amr bin Aas (Radhiyallahu Anhu) reports: “On one occasion we descended a valley with Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam). Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) turned to me while I was wearing a cloth which was dyed with a yellow-coloured dye. Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) asked me, “Why are you wearing this garment?” I thus perceived he disliked the clothing I was wearing (and was displeased) so I went to my family while they were lighting the oven and I threw it (in the oven and burnt it). I then went to Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) the following day and he asked me, “O Abdullah, what did you do with your garment?” I informed him what I had done with it. Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said: “Why didn’t you give it to one of the women in your family? There is no problem in women wearing this type of clothing.”
