Let him initiate long overdue Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim.

00:00:06--> 00:00:10

Lesson number 89. So to arrive we'll begin from Isaiah number 26. Do

00:00:12--> 00:00:13

you have any Adam

00:00:14--> 00:00:16

or children of Adam?

00:00:17--> 00:00:33

Or the answer now I lay come lieberson we have bestowed upon you clothing. Why you already so the comb what Isha to conceal your private parts and also as an adornment

00:00:34--> 00:00:42

wily bear suit Aqua, but the clothing of righteousness, their legal hiren that is best.

00:00:43--> 00:00:51

Then you come in a Atilla that is of the signs of of La, La La homea, the karoun perhaps they will remember.

00:00:52--> 00:01:12

Over here, all people are being addressed. Yeah, Benny Adam, or children of Adam. And we're being reminded that we are the children of Adam earnest Anam, whom Allah subhanaw taala created by his own hands, whom you based in Jana, whom he gave the clothing of gentlemen,

00:01:13--> 00:01:24

that all children of Adam Calder and Zanna Alaykum lieberson we have sent down upon you clothing. What does it mean by this that we have sent down upon you clothing?

00:01:26--> 00:01:35

First of all, this is understood as that the command of wearing clothes has come to you from who? from Allah soprano.

00:01:37--> 00:01:44

Just as Allah sent down many commands. Similarly, he has also sent down the command of clothing yourself.

00:01:45--> 00:01:46

It's a divine command.

00:01:47--> 00:01:55

It's a command from Allah subhanaw taala. Therefore, clothing oneself appropriately is in reality, fulfilling the commandment of law

00:01:57--> 00:02:03

and unclogging oneself, not clothing oneself appropriately is going against the commandment.

00:02:04--> 00:02:07

Because Allah says other and zelner aleikum liversedge

00:02:09--> 00:02:23

It is also said that what it means by other engineer alaykum. lieberson is that we have sent down the means of your clothing from where, from our how,

00:02:24--> 00:02:30

if you look at it, clothing is made of what material? Where does that material come from?

00:02:31--> 00:02:33

Cotton, silk, etc?

00:02:34--> 00:02:39

How does that go? from the earth? When, when it's given water?

00:02:40--> 00:02:45

Where does the water come from? From the sky in the form of rain,

00:02:46--> 00:02:53

so called the Angelina eleiko meaning we have provided you with the means of fulfilling your need of clothing yourself

00:02:55--> 00:03:02

that Allah sent down the rain, and from the produce of the earth clothes have been made, he has sent down clothing for you.

00:03:04--> 00:03:07

The word Libous is from the root letters lamb Bessie

00:03:08--> 00:03:14

and nivas is everything that is one What is it? Everything that is one

00:03:15--> 00:03:36

whether it is something that is worn in the winter, or in the summer, whether it is something that is worn at home, in times of peace or in the middle of a battle by a man or a woman. But what's the main purpose of Libya is that it covers and protects the body as well as it beautifies the body.

00:03:37--> 00:03:43

So what is the best tool? It covers protects and beautifies the body.

00:03:45--> 00:03:47

So are the ends and there are a complete lesson.

00:03:49--> 00:03:53

And what's the objective of Libous what's the purpose of Libous

00:03:55--> 00:04:02

First of all, USD, so article, it covers your private points, USD is on the roof as well as

00:04:03--> 00:04:10

my wuya we learned earlier woodier it was hidden USD it hides it covers

00:04:11--> 00:04:18

what does it cover? So article, so at plural of Soa, and what does the word so I mean,

00:04:19--> 00:04:24

private party or any thing that must not be exposed.

00:04:26--> 00:04:38

exposing it is shameful whether it is a dead body, or it is a private part of a person or it is any other part of the body whose exposing is not appropriate.

00:04:39--> 00:04:40

It is shameful.

00:04:42--> 00:04:50

Because sometimes we will go to the extent of saying that it's only the private parts that a person should conceal. And that's it. That's the only sort of that's the only hour

00:04:51--> 00:04:54

and beyond that it's up to you whatever you want to expose

00:04:55--> 00:04:59

whether you're wearing a very low neck or a dress in which your entire back is

00:05:00--> 00:05:09

being shown, or that all of your arms are being shown, or your legs are being shown It's okay. No big deal, because as long as your private parts are covered, that's it.

00:05:10--> 00:05:11


00:05:12--> 00:05:27

So as Yes, it refers to private parts. But it refers to every part of the body that must be covered, and exposing it is shameful, it is indecent. It is indecent to expose it, it is indecent to display it.

00:05:29--> 00:05:50

So, the purpose, the objective of clothing is that it must cover the body. And this is the primary, this is the most important function of clothing. And if a piece of clothing does not fulfill this purpose, then it's not a properly bias, it is incomplete Libous

00:05:51--> 00:05:56

Levesque is that which covers the body and that's the objective, it must cover the body.

00:05:57--> 00:06:02

Therefore, the scholars have said that clothing should meet three conditions

00:06:03--> 00:06:09

Libous must meet three conditions and what are they that first of all, it should not be too short.

00:06:10--> 00:06:22

It should not be scanty, it should not be too short, rather, it should be big enough that a person's private parts as well as the rest of the body that should be covered is covered before others.

00:06:24--> 00:06:44

So basically, the owner should be covered. There is a difference of opinion with regards to what is the minimum that must be covered before people. For men, definitely, it is from the naval to the knee, no difference of opinion with regards to that, from the naval to the knee, which means that shorts that are above the knees are not appropriate

00:06:46--> 00:07:01

is from the naval to the knee, it should be covered before other men as well. You understand. So if there are people in the locker rooms changing, they should make sure that their older is not exposed even before other men.

00:07:02--> 00:07:16

For men, before men is how much from the navel to the need for the women. Some scholars do say again, before other women, it's from the navel to the knee. Why? Because if a woman is breastfeeding,

00:07:17--> 00:07:19

it is difficult for her to keep herself covered all the time.

00:07:20--> 00:07:30

This is an opinion. So for example, if a woman is breastfeeding, and if a part of her chest is exposed before other women, it's not unlawful. It's not forbidden.

00:07:32--> 00:07:39

But according to others, they say that okay, yes, that is because of the need. But generally, a woman should not dress up in a way

00:07:40--> 00:07:58

that her parts of the body that should be covered before others are being exposed unnecessarily. Therefore, she should wear such clothing, which covers her chest, which covers her stomach, which covers her back as well. And it covers her down to at least below her knees,

00:07:59--> 00:08:03

at least below her knees. So for instance, if a woman is wearing a dress, or she's wearing the skirt,

00:08:05--> 00:08:24

and if she's sitting before another woman and a part of her leg, just above the ankle, a little bit is exposed. It's okay. But she shouldn't lift it up above her knees and sit down before people or she shouldn't wear a dress that is too short that is above the knees, it should be definitely below the knees.

00:08:25--> 00:08:34

So first of all, and obviously this is women before women and men before men, how a woman should dress up before a man inshallah we will learn about that as well.

00:08:36--> 00:08:54

So first of all, it should not be too short. Secondly, it should not be transparent. The clothing should not be transparent. It should not be translucent, such that even to the clothing, a person's body is being exposed.

00:08:55--> 00:09:04

Sometimes women wear such hijab through which their ears being shown through which the neck can be seen through which even if they're wearing a niqab, their lips can be seen.

00:09:05--> 00:09:18

So it's not just with hijab, but the rest of the clothing as well, that it should not be see through that the body can be seen even through the clouds. It should be thick enough that the body is covered.

00:09:19--> 00:09:21

It's not transparent, it's not see through.

00:09:22--> 00:09:31

And thirdly, it must not be too tight. such that it reveals it exposes the body.

00:09:33--> 00:09:59

And in fact, today what happens if people are wearing particular types of clothes, it will, in fact shape the body because it's so tight. That a woman's for example, her legs will fit into those particular trousers into those skinny jeans so that her legs become a certain shape so that her legs you know they're showing in a particular way. And in fact that beautify the body even more. They expose the body even more

00:10:00--> 00:10:09

So what's the third condition? that it must not be too tight, that shapes the body, and that it reveals the body parts.

00:10:10--> 00:10:14

It should not be that type that reveals the body parts.

00:10:15--> 00:10:32

So for example, if a person is wearing skinny is that is that appropriate? It's not appropriate. Why? Because it is as good as though she's wearing nothing. It's just a garment that is wrapped around the body. And that's it. It's as good as paint on the body, literally.

00:10:33--> 00:10:40

So it should be such clothing that hides the body that covers the body that does not expose the body that does not reveal the body.

00:10:41--> 00:10:54

So you are so adequate. This is the first objective This is the primary objective, that the clothing must not be too short. It should not be too transparent, and it should not be too tight.

00:10:55--> 00:11:02

that a person is wearing clothes but still he's naked. Or she is naked. No. It should cover the body.

00:11:03--> 00:11:07

What Asian and also adornment,

00:11:08--> 00:11:16

meaning, the clothing that Allah subhanaw taala has commanded you to wear is also a means of adorning yourself.

00:11:18--> 00:11:30

Rich, it is said that it's the plural of Leisha just put it down with a theme and the word Leisha is the feather of a bird. But is it? The feather of a birth?

00:11:32--> 00:11:38

If you look at it, feathers, and for animals their fur? What does it do?

00:11:39--> 00:11:45

It is a means of beautifying the bird. It adorns the bird and the animal.

00:11:46--> 00:11:47

Have you ever seen a black pen?

00:11:50--> 00:11:51

Or a bird whose feathers are removed?

00:11:52--> 00:11:57

Or sheep? Whose wool has been taken off? How does it look?

00:11:59--> 00:12:03

naked and it doesn't look that beautiful either? Isn't it?

00:12:04--> 00:12:11

Same bird with colourful wings with beautiful wings doesn't look so beautiful.

00:12:12--> 00:12:29

looks amazing. And if you remove those wings, it's not going to look that beautiful anymore. So resha is a feather of a bird. And what's the objective of the feathers? That they don't just cover the bird but they also beautify the bird.

00:12:30--> 00:12:38

The word leash is used for Xena, it is used for adornment materials for ornamentation for beautification.

00:12:39--> 00:12:44

And the word Rishi is also used for wealth. Why? Because Well, what does it show?

00:12:46--> 00:12:53

Beauty right? Or through wealth? What is the person game? What does a person obtain? beautification.

00:12:55--> 00:13:02

For example, if a person does not have that much money, will they be able to afford nice beautiful colorful clothes? know,

00:13:03--> 00:13:15

if a person has money, then he's able to buy ornament for himself. So, basically, the reach is a source of elegance, a source of beautification, as well as protection,

00:13:16--> 00:13:17

as well as protection.

00:13:19--> 00:13:40

It is said that the profits out of autism used to say Alhamdulillah Hey lady, Rosa, Connie amenorrhea she that all praises to Allah who provided me with the ashy man at the gym man who believe and ness through which I adorn myself amongst people, when he believes e r t, and through which I cover my

00:13:42--> 00:13:51

keys. So, you understand the ash clothing? What do they do? They beautify a person and at the same time they also cover a person.

00:13:53--> 00:13:55

So, what Asian as well as addition?

00:13:57--> 00:14:05

What does it mean by this? How do we connect this word with the first part of the ayah that first of all, what einzelner addition,

00:14:06--> 00:14:07

this is connected with

00:14:08--> 00:14:17

and then the ebony Adam, that alternative Adam we have sent down to you what lieberson and we have also sent down to you what

00:14:19--> 00:14:27

region, Allah has created the means for you to clothe yourself and also the means to beautify yourself,

00:14:28--> 00:14:33

we have created the means through which you can beautify yourself

00:14:34--> 00:14:36

through which you can adorn yourself

00:14:38--> 00:14:41

and this is what clothing does it beautifies a person.

00:14:42--> 00:14:50

Secondly, the set that variation This is connected with live so that the first objective of liberation is UID. So ethical.

00:14:51--> 00:14:58

And the second objective of liberation is Russia. It beautifies you it adores you

00:14:59--> 00:15:00

so it is amazing.

00:15:00--> 00:15:04

Have adornment for you. And this is a second objective of clothing.

00:15:05--> 00:15:09

And you see, clothing is actually when beautifies a person

00:15:11--> 00:15:15

because a human body, it does not have any feathers. And if

00:15:16--> 00:15:26

you look at a bird, it has beautiful feathers, if you look at an animal that has a nice coat of fur on it, but the human body does not have anything like that. It's just plain. That's it.

00:15:27--> 00:15:34

So what is it that actually beautifies a person that makes him attractive, that makes her beautiful? It's the clothes that she puts on,

00:15:36--> 00:15:39

isn't it because the body in itself does not have different shades of color, it's just plain.

00:15:41--> 00:15:59

So when a person puts on clothing, that is what adorns a body. And as we discussed earlier that a bird without feathers is ugly. It's not that beautiful. Similarly, a human being without clothes is also not beautiful, what beautifies a person is wearing clothes.

00:16:01--> 00:16:22

That is also said that what what this means is that Allah has commanded us to wear clothing, which is such that it adds beauty and ornamentation to the person. And basically it is such clothing that doesn't just cover your body but it also beautifies your body. And it also demonstrates a person's well.

00:16:24--> 00:16:29

Because only if a person can afford then he will be able to buy nice clothes, beautiful clothes.

00:16:30--> 00:16:32

So Allah subhanaw taala has given this all to you.

00:16:33--> 00:17:05

And when he's given this to you, what should you do not wear clothes, or wear inappropriate clothes. wear such clothes that don't fit you that are too small that are too tight in which are so uncomfortable that you can barely breathe. You can barely walk or that you can't wait to change. You can't wait to get out of those clothes. No. If Allah has given you this blessing, take advantage of it. beautify yourself by wearing clothes, not taking your clothes off. Because if you take your clothes off, you're not gonna look that beautiful.

00:17:06--> 00:17:10

Allah has given you this blessing. Take advantage of this blessing.

00:17:11--> 00:17:32

When he basswood, taqwa and the garment, the clothing of piety of righteousness velika Hiram, that is best. That is the best outfit that you could have in your wardrobe. Which one? Lavasa taco. Now what does it mean to live as a taco

00:17:34--> 00:17:37

labasa taqwa has been understood in two ways.

00:17:38--> 00:17:50

First of all, it has been said that labasa taco doesn't refer to a tangible physical garment. It's not really like you can go to a store and you can ask them for a device at the corner.

00:17:52--> 00:17:54

Why? Because it is something intangible.

00:17:56--> 00:18:04

And piety or taqwa righteousness, is the clothing of a person's soul.

00:18:05--> 00:18:09

It is the clothing of a person's you can say inner being

00:18:10--> 00:18:15

you wear garments, physical clothes were on your physical body.

00:18:17--> 00:18:32

But you should also wear something on your inside. Why? to beautify your inside. If you have to wear something on your body to beautify yourself. Don't you have to wear something on the inside to beautify your inside? Of course you do.

00:18:33--> 00:18:54

And that is what Libba said. And that is the best garment that is the best outfit. So what is the best of the one? It's the clothing of character of good character, which adorns the heart. It adorns the heart. And at the same time, it covers the shameful deeds of a person as well.

00:18:55--> 00:19:04

It covers the shameful deeds of a person. For instance, a person has jealousy or hatred in his heart for another

00:19:05--> 00:19:10

or negative talk about someone who inspires it. shavon

00:19:11--> 00:19:50

Okay, that is what something evil, something that should not be displayed because if it is displayed, what's going to happen? It's going to show a person's weakness. What does a person need? Just as a person has private parts and you should not expose them? What does he do? He wears clothing. Similarly, a person should have labasa taqwa in his heart, which does not just adorn his heart, but at the same time, what does it do? It also covers his faults. It doesn't let him show his anger. It doesn't let him show his hatred. It doesn't let him act according to his jealousy. It covers it.

00:19:51--> 00:19:59

It doesn't mean that it means you should entertain evil inside. But what it means is you need the Nevada taco inside to cover the ill that occurs.

00:20:00--> 00:20:02

A new heart that comes into being in your heart.

00:20:04--> 00:20:11

Because this ill this evil is going to continue to come into your heart because you're a human being shavon is always whispering evil to you.

00:20:13--> 00:20:23

But you need something to cover it up. You need something to hide it to not let you work according to it. And you need something that is going to beautify your insight that's going to beautify your heart.

00:20:24--> 00:20:30

And what is that? The clothing of it, which adorns the heart and covers the shameful deeds of the heart as well?

00:20:32--> 00:20:37

And what is the best metaphor? What are some of the examples? For example, I'm

00:20:38--> 00:20:39

doing good.

00:20:40--> 00:20:45

Similarly, good character. Eman. Fear of a loss penalty.

00:20:46--> 00:20:57

Higher modesty. All of this is what labasa taqwa that is in the heart. And where's the quad? a taco Hakuna it's in the heart.

00:20:58--> 00:21:01

So while you better taco vaniqa Hi.

00:21:03--> 00:21:18

And there are many things that adorn a person's heart that beautify a person's heart We don't answer them a lot and number seven, Allah subhanaw taala says well I can no longer have Baba la como. Amen. was a Yana who feel

00:21:20--> 00:21:23

very dear to you. You love it have Baba he has made it very dear to you. was a you know who any is beautified it physically will become in your hearts.

00:21:37--> 00:21:41

So what is it that beautifies the heart of a person? Even

00:21:42--> 00:21:59

if you need a nice pair of clothes, a nice shirt, nice makeup, nice jewelry, to beautify your face to beautify your body. Don't you need something to beautify your heart? Of course you do. Because a lot does not look at your body. What does he look at?

00:22:01--> 00:22:11

He looks at your heart in a cubicle. What are my nickel? If you are adorning your faces and your bodies to please people

00:22:12--> 00:22:20

do become presentable before people? Don't you need to adorn your heart in order to make it presentable before

00:22:22--> 00:22:26

you walk into a party in your pajamas? Are you doing

00:22:27--> 00:22:34

with an iron clothes? No. With clothes that are completely out of fashion? No. With clothes that are carrying? No.

00:22:35--> 00:22:35

You don't ever do that.

00:22:37--> 00:22:40

People are so conscious that they will never repeat their clothes.

00:22:41--> 00:22:44

They will wear them once. They will not wait and the second day

00:22:45--> 00:22:48

they will not they're so conscious about their tangible products.

00:22:49--> 00:23:05

Similarly, people are so careful about going outside even if they're just going for groceries. They will make sure their hair looks proper their hijab matches there are by etc etc. So particular Why? Because we have to be presentable before people.

00:23:07--> 00:23:08

What about the hyperbola?

00:23:09--> 00:23:14

Should you not adorn your heart so that even that is presentable before of love.

00:23:15--> 00:23:26

Even that is presentable before of law. So what is the way of adorning your heart by having higher in your heart by having a man in your heart by having question of Allah in your heart

00:23:27--> 00:23:31

by having hulu's sincerity in your heart?

00:23:32--> 00:23:39

That is what adorns the heart of a person. So Allah says when he buys a taco vatika Hi, that is the best.

00:23:41--> 00:23:47

Second, it has been said that labasa taco refers to tangible reverse. It is the physical reverse.

00:23:48--> 00:23:49

And what is that physical reverse?

00:23:50--> 00:23:55

It is that reverse, which fulfills the conditions of

00:23:56--> 00:24:04

which when a person is wearing you know, you can tell that this person has fear of God in his heart, which is why he's dressed up in this way.

00:24:06--> 00:24:12

It's such clothing, which shows that a person has fear of Allah in His heart

00:24:13--> 00:24:19

that a person is careful is concerned about his alcohol.

00:24:20--> 00:24:22

And what is that clothing? What does that garment

00:24:23--> 00:24:41

is it a particular kind of clothing? What is it? It is that which fulfills the conditions of livers as we discussed earlier, that it's not too short. It's not too scanty. At the same time, it's not transparent.

00:24:42--> 00:24:44

Similarly, it is not too tight.

00:24:46--> 00:24:49

Generally, what do we follow when it comes to wearing clothes?

00:24:51--> 00:24:57

The trends that the society the fashion This is in this is not in everybody's doing it

00:24:58--> 00:24:59

and without even thinking twice. What

00:25:00--> 00:25:00


00:25:01--> 00:25:03

we follow the ways that people

00:25:04--> 00:25:19

just because everybody's wearing extremely tight pants I'm wearing? It's in? How can you not wear that? loose pants are completely out of fashion, you don't wear those anymore. You're not supposed to and if somebody is wearing them, they look down. But what do we learn

00:25:21--> 00:25:29

and the best that fulfills the proper conditions. That shows that a person has the quality of Allah that shows that he has fear of Allah.

00:25:31--> 00:25:34

Many times people say don't judge me by my appearance.

00:25:35--> 00:25:40

But the fact is, however you dress up, however you appear before people, that is how you're going to be judged.

00:25:42--> 00:26:06

Some have said that labasa taco is such diverse, which when a person wears he refrains from Cuba, he refrains from arrogance, he does not become arrogant, rather, he increases in his taco. Sometimes what happens? A person is wearing clothes. Very nice clothes. Yes, they fulfill all the conditions. But they're so beautiful. They're so unique.

00:26:07--> 00:26:14

Very rare. Hardly anybody has them. And you're the only person who has a particular style in that color in that material.

00:26:16--> 00:26:23

So when a person is wearing such clothes than what happens immediately in his heart, he begins to feel proud of himself.

00:26:24--> 00:26:30

This is contrary to the best of all of us at UCLA is that which when a person wears, he does not have any,

00:26:31--> 00:26:31

any idea.

00:26:33--> 00:26:35

He's not showing up. He's not looking down on people.

00:26:36--> 00:26:58

And remember that everybody has choice with regards to whatever they want to wear in the sense that whatever color they choose for themselves, whatever style they choose for themselves, whatever material they choose for themselves. Generally what happens we wear something unique, and we say, Oh, look at this person. She's still wearing that design, which came out like 10 years ago, 15 years ago. Look at the color combination.

00:26:59--> 00:27:14

The lace doesn't match the shirt at all. The material is just weird. She doesn't have any sense of style. She doesn't have any sense of matching her shoes, don't go with her clothes. And her job doesn't match with her clothes. And it just doesn't fit.

00:27:15--> 00:27:17

Who are you to pass garments and people.

00:27:18--> 00:27:27

It's her choice. It's his choice. It's their choice. whatever color they want to wear, whatever style they want to where you are no one to comment on somebody's clothes.

00:27:29--> 00:27:36

So Lavasa taco is one such labels, which when a person wears he does not become arrogant. He doesn't say Edelman who

00:27:37--> 00:27:41

is much better than them. I'm wearing the best clothes in this entire room.

00:27:43--> 00:27:57

So what is almost a worry bass at the core, the clothing of the coil Delica higher on that is much better. Meaning don't just wear clothes, to beautify yourself to adorn yourself. That's not the only objective.

00:27:58--> 00:28:02

The objective is that whatever you wearing, it increases you in your bio.

00:28:03--> 00:28:06

It increases you in your obedience to a loss of data.

00:28:07--> 00:28:35

If a person is wearing such clothes, which are so tight with her so short, that they cannot do the job properly. They cannot do record properly. And if they go down into surgery, their back shows. Is that appropriate? Is that going to increase them in taco? No. Or when they go down to suit their legs are showing? Is that going to increase them in the court? No. Lavasa taco is that which increases a person Mr. Court increases him in his obedience to Allah

00:28:36--> 00:28:36


00:28:39--> 00:28:42

Very common Atilla that is of the signs of Allah.

00:28:44--> 00:28:45

What are the signs of Allah?

00:28:47--> 00:28:50

The fact that Allah spent Allah has given you the command to wear DBS.

00:28:51--> 00:29:00

Or the fact that he has given you the resources the means through which you can make your device through which you can wear and the best. It's other signs of oma

00:29:01--> 00:29:04

meaning, it shows how kind of a history

00:29:05--> 00:29:16

how gracious he is towards you. That he has kept so much variety in your clothes. Just imagine, for example, a bird

00:29:17--> 00:29:22

she's given one set of wings, one color, can you change them? No.

00:29:24--> 00:29:31

Would you? You love pink, one particular season, you get bored of it. You want to wear blue now?

00:29:32--> 00:29:41

One day you wear pink another day you wear green another day you wear orange, you have the choice? Doesn't that show the mercy of Allah, the graciousness of Allah.

00:29:42--> 00:29:54

Then you come in it. It is of the signs of a more of his favorites upon His creatures. If he wanted he could have given you a permanent dress, but he didn't.

00:29:55--> 00:30:00

And if Such was the case that people didn't need to wear clothes, that their bodies

00:30:00--> 00:30:09

Were such that conceal their private parts that conceal their bodies. Like for example, lions, they have for they have here,

00:30:10--> 00:30:13

all animals, they have something or the other on their bodies.

00:30:15--> 00:30:21

If people are also made like this, would there be any fashion industry? Would there be any clothing industry? No.

00:30:23--> 00:30:29

Would there be any business? Would there be any tailors? Would there be any fashion designers No, nothing ends at the mercy of Allah.

00:30:30--> 00:30:36

The fact that human beings have to wear clothes, so much goes around in the earth because of that reason.

00:30:37--> 00:30:42

So many people have work. So, when people get to use their minds,

00:30:43--> 00:30:50

we see over here that a lost power versus the other ends. And now, we have sent down to the command of wearing clothes,

00:30:51--> 00:30:57

and also the conditions as to what conditions your clothing should fulfill.

00:30:59--> 00:31:16

And if a person does not follow these conditions, then he is going to harm himself, he is going to be a source of temptation for others, he's going to make life difficult for others as well. So that if I mean it left la la comida karoon, perhaps they would remember

00:31:17--> 00:31:25

meaning so that they would remember, they will take heed, and they will implement implement what appropriate clothing in their lives.

00:31:27--> 00:31:48

This is from the practice of shaitan that he makes nakedness, so beautiful to people, that they try their best to make their clothes short and tight and transparent, to reveal their body to expose their body go to such places where they don't have to wear clothes or minimum clothes or even accept it. This is from the tactics of shadow.

00:31:49--> 00:31:53

Just as every command that our last panel data has given us.

00:31:55--> 00:31:56

It is a test for us.

00:31:57--> 00:32:04

If we do it properly, it's an act of obedience. If we don't, then it's an act of disobedience.

00:32:05--> 00:32:12

Similarly, clothing as well if we cloth according to how Allah wants us to clothe ourselves, that is an act of worship.

00:32:13--> 00:32:26

That is an act of worship. It is live as a taqwa it will increase in your taqwa. And on the other hand, at the same time, clothing can also be a means of disobedience to a loss of parameter going further away from Allah.

00:32:27--> 00:32:32

And it's a test that we go through every day, every single day, every time you have to wear something, it's a test.

00:32:34--> 00:32:40

So what are some of the main things that we learned from this ayah? First of all, we learned that there are two objectives of clothing.

00:32:41--> 00:32:55

Were the first is essential, and the second is complimentary. What is the first objective that it covers? It covers a body. What's the second objective? That is beauty, and it is adornment.

00:32:57--> 00:32:57


00:32:59--> 00:33:06

when it comes to men and women, both of them they should wear such clothes that don't just cover their body, but it also notifies them.

00:33:07--> 00:33:22

Sometimes we go to an extreme we commit is far off in trying to get the most beautiful clothes, or in trying to get ration. We go to another extreme. But remember that moderation is something that is very important.

00:33:23--> 00:33:27

It's something very important. staying away from excessiveness.

00:33:29--> 00:33:39

And remember that for a woman, when she adorns herself, when she beautifies herself with nice clothes, it is not unlawful for her to do so.

00:33:40--> 00:33:52

In fact, it is recommended. It is something that a woman should do. Allah Subhana Allah has put this nature inside of a woman that she wants to dress up, she wants to look good. She wants to wear nice clothes. It's something inside her own and she should do it.

00:33:54--> 00:34:07

However, what is simple that she should not display her beauty, her adornment before Who? Before non Muslim. That's a simple rule. Because sometimes people go to an extreme.

00:34:08--> 00:34:14

They think that Xena wearing beauty is something that is not correct for women.

00:34:15--> 00:34:18

That's not the case. Remember that?

00:34:19--> 00:34:24

Wearing Zina is correct for women. In fact, that is something encouraged.

00:34:25--> 00:34:31

However, displaying that Xena before namaha men is something that is not correct.

00:34:33--> 00:34:37

So for example, if a woman is wearing nice clothes, of course she should.

00:34:38--> 00:34:40

But as soon as there's a non random What should she do?

00:34:41--> 00:34:54

Cover herself simple. We don't insert a note I number 31 a lot of parents are artists as well. Are you within a Xena? tahuna illa masaharu Amina, and they should not expose their adornment except that which appears by itself.

00:34:55--> 00:34:59

So they should not expose their adornment unless parents are does not say they should not wear

00:35:00--> 00:35:08

adornment. What does he say they should not expose their adornment. So wear it, but don't expose it to nonmetal.

00:35:09--> 00:35:12

So the simple rule is the clothing that she wears at home,

00:35:13--> 00:35:19

she should not wear it outside in the sense that she should wear something on top in order to conceal that.

00:35:21--> 00:35:28

Another very important lesson that we learned from this ayah is about the importance of wearing such clothes that beautify a person.

00:35:29--> 00:35:33

Now, yes, this varies from person to person, every person's taste is different.

00:35:35--> 00:35:44

However, a person should try his best to choose something that is nice, that is lively. That looks good on him, that looks good on her.

00:35:45--> 00:35:48

Why? Because we look at one another.

00:35:49--> 00:35:55

People look at one another. And if a person is not wearing something beautiful, something nice, it could be a burden for other people to look at.

00:35:56--> 00:36:03

Similarly, if it's too bright, it's too fluorescent. Then even that is a source of discomfort for other people.

00:36:04--> 00:36:13

So wear something that is nice. Nice does not mean go to another extreme and niceness. Okay, be balanced, be monitored.

00:36:14--> 00:36:20

And especially when it comes to wearing good clothes before once husband or before once wife.

00:36:21--> 00:36:42

This is something very important. I believe in our best he would explain the Iola hoonah Miss Villa de la Heneghan, maroof, Surah Baqarah 228. that do to the wives is similar to what is expected of them, according to what is reasonable, you would teach this ayah and he would dress up nicely before his wife.

00:36:43--> 00:36:48

It is said that before going home, he will perform will do he will put on some fragrance, and then he would go home.

00:36:49--> 00:36:54

What do we do? When we're going out, then we shower,

00:36:55--> 00:36:57

then we wear some nice clothes,

00:36:58--> 00:37:07

then we fix our hair, then we fix ourselves and then we go out. As soon as we come back home, we change into our pajamas into such clothes that are not even ironed.

00:37:09--> 00:37:11

such clothes that don't look nice at all.

00:37:12--> 00:37:41

But imagine our Villa even our best as a man, he would dress up nicely for his wife. Why? Because it's the hug on the wife. Similarly, it's the hug the husband, that when he comes home, his wife is not going around in her pajamas or wearing clothes that don't look good on her. But rather she should wear nice clothes especially for loss of control he has given when Allah gives a blessing to someone he likes it when the person is using it, and he displays it.

00:37:42--> 00:37:54

Similarly, we also learned from this idea that it's not the apparent clothing that gives honor to person. But it actually is the core that raises the rank of a person in the sight of Allah.

00:37:56--> 00:38:02

It's not the agrarian clothing, sometimes our whole focus is on getting the best clothes.

00:38:03--> 00:38:14

We will spend so much time so much money, so much effort in getting the most latest and the most perfect and such clothes. Why? Because what does it show?

00:38:16--> 00:38:18

If you're wearing nice clothes, then you're impressive.

00:38:20--> 00:38:30

But what is it that really honors a person? Is it his nice clothes and very bad o'clock? A very sharp tongue? No.

00:38:31--> 00:38:34

What is it that adorns a person history?

00:38:36--> 00:38:39

So yes, our focus should be on wearing nice clothes.

00:38:40--> 00:38:51

But at the same time, our focus should be on adorning our hearts, cleaning our hearts beautifying our hearts. This is what we should do.

00:38:52--> 00:39:07

And there are particular etiquettes as well of wearing clothes. I will just quickly go over that for example when a person is wearing their clothes. How should they begin with their right side? And when they're taking off their clothes their left side

00:39:08--> 00:39:10

and then wearing new clothes? What should you say?

00:39:12--> 00:39:12


00:39:13--> 00:39:18

This look at yourself in the mirror Nick looks nice. Ask everybody does it look okay?

00:39:19--> 00:39:20

Is that what we should do?

00:39:21--> 00:39:24

There is a DA Muslim da

00:39:25--> 00:39:29

and there are many drugs that we find the Prophet sallallahu Sallam used to regularly supplicate

00:39:30--> 00:39:36

for instance, Alhamdulillah Higgledy cassani my worry be here allottee We're at the gym Malou beefy hayati

00:39:38--> 00:39:45

that All praise belongs to Allah who adorn me with clothing by which I cover my private areas and by which I obtain in my life, Beauty

00:39:47--> 00:39:57

and the other there are others as well. And in fact, there are some books in which you will find etiquettes of dressing oneself, which I highly recommend that you should read.

00:39:59--> 00:39:59

I mean Hadrian

00:40:00--> 00:40:04

If you mark down the page number, it's 267.

00:40:05--> 00:40:13

We learned all of this in Sunday School in Islamic school, but it is something very important and we should remind ourselves with it regularly.

00:40:15--> 00:40:30

There is another door as well in which the Prophet sallallahu Sallam would say, especially upon wearing new clothes that Allahumma can handle under casselton. He has a Luca Hira, who will hire Rama Sonia Allah who will be coming shortly but shall remain Sonia Allah Who?

00:40:31--> 00:41:09

That Oh Allah to you is all praise. You are the one who closed me with this. Because sometimes when we have nice clothes, or do we think, yes, I can afford it. I have so much money, but you're the one who closed me buy it. I asked you for its good and the good of what it was made for and I asked refuge in You from its evil and the evil of what it was made for. One of the easiest ways of making sure that you say this, or is that if you write it down on a piece of paper, stick it in your closet, so that every time you where you choose your clothes, or on your mirror or something like that every time you wear your clothes and you look at yourself. Don't just feel proud in your heart

00:41:09--> 00:41:15

but rather, thankfulness penalty for it because when a person is grateful, then Allah increases the blessings.
