Sunnah 18: Wear your finest clothes

May 7, 2010

يسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

The Prophet (pbuh) said: “There is nothing wrong with any one of you if he buys two garments for Friday other than his workaday clothes.” [Abu Dawud]

This means that it is mustahabb (recommended) that one has something special, or his best clothes, to wear on Friday. A further indication is given in the following saying of the Prophet (pbuh):

“Whoever takes a bath on Friday, puts on perfume if he has some, wears his best clothes then goes out, walking in a dignified manner until he reaches the mosque, then he prostrates in prayer if he wants and does not disturb anybody, then he remains quiet until the imaam comes out and he prays, that will be an expiation from one Friday to the next.” [Ahmad]
