The Dress of Pious People (Hadith No. 372)


Volume 1, Book 8, Number 372:

Narrated ‘Uqba bin ‘Amir:

The Prophet was given a silken Farruj as a present. He wore it while praying. When he had finished his prayer, he took it off violently as if with a strong aversion to it and said, “It is not the dress of Allah-fearing pious people.”

Men are not allowed to wear silk. The ruling might’ve not come till this time, so Prophet (SAW) wore the Farruj. But he (SAW) had a personal disliking for it. Silk symbolizes luxury, whereas Prophet (SAW) was used to the roughness of life. He preferred a simple living. His and his family’s basic needs were being fulfilled. He didn’t ask for more of this world. It was Hereafter that he looked forward to. We all have our priorities. Period.
