The Best Clothes for People Who Have Died

Islamic Rule Reference: Hi all readers! In this world there are many of the best clothes, even very luxurious ones. In stores, supermarkets, boutiques, etc., we often see shirts, shirts, suits, and so on. We also often see people wearing these clothes. In this article I will not discuss it all. But in this article, I will explain the best clothes for people who have died. Of course, it’s very different from the best clothes for people who are still alive. Therefore, a Muslim must understand very well about it.

As usual, before I explain more about the best clothes for people who have died, I will quote one hadith that is specifically related to our discussion. The hadith I mean is as follows;

عَنْ ابْنِ عَبَّاسٍ رَضِيَ اللهُ عَنْهُمَا أَنَّ النَّبِيَّ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ قَالَ ؛ اِلْبَسُوْا مِنْ ثِيَابِكُمْ الْبَيَاضَ ، فَإِنَّهَا مِنْ خَيْرِ ثِيَابِكُمْ ، وَكَفِّنُوْا فِيْهَا مَوْتَاكُمْ . رَوَاهُ الْخَمْسَةُ إِلَّا النَّسَائِيُّ

From Ibn Abbas radliyallahu ‘anhuma, that the Prophet (Muhammad) sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam said, “Wear your white clothes. Truly it is the best of your clothes. Caravan those who have died with it.” The hadith is narrated by five people except an-Nasa’I (Ahmad, Abu Daud, at-Tirmidhi, Ibn Majah).
