Ramadan 2007 (Seerat-e-Mustufa (S.A.W))


Dress of the Holy Prophet (S.A.W)

Rasoolullah (S.A.W) generally wore clothes made from cotton and sometimes linen, and did not have a special code of dress. Normal clothes such as a Jubba, turban, hat etc. were worn by him.The Holy Prophet (S.A.W) also liked trousers and even bought one at the market of Mina, though it is unproven that he ever wore one.

Hazrat Anas (R.A) has related that the shirt of the Holy Prophet (S.A.W) was made of cotton with short length and short sleeves. It had cotton buttons and had an opening on the chest. This is the style of a shirt according to sunnah. (Madarijun Nubuwah)


Hazrat Ibne Umar (R.A) reported that whenever the Messenger of Allah (S.A.W) put on a turban he let the end of it hang between his shoulders (Tirmizi Shareef)

Holy Prophet (S.A.W) wore different coloured Amaamah’s, some of which were white, green, yellow, saffron and black. Rasoolullah (S.A.W) wore a black turban on the day Makkah was conquered. (Shamaail Tirmidhi, Pg.9)

There was always a hat beneath the Amaamah, as the Holy Prophet (S.A.W) used to say, “The difference between the Mushrik’s turban and ours is that we tie our turbans on hats.”(Abu Dawood Shareef, Vol.2, Pg.209)

Hazrat Ubaadah (R.A) reported that the Holy Prophet (S.A.W) has said “Keep to (putting on) turbans because they are the signs of the angels and let the ends hang down behind your backs.” (Baihaqi)

Sheets & Blankets

Our beloved Prophet (S.A.W) preferred and mostly used cotton sheets of Yemen that were called ‘Jar rah’ in Arabic. Occasionally He (S.A.W) also used green sheets . (Abu Dawood Shareef, Vol.2, Pg.207)

White Cloth

Abu Darda (R.A) reported that the Messenger of Allah has said, “The best cloth in which you visit Allah (S.W.T) in your graves and in your mosques is white.” (Ibne Majah)
