Clothing is a blessing that is exclusive to the human creation of Allah (SWT) No other creation in the universe enjoys such a bounty. Allah Ta’ala has referred to this blessing in the Quran.
‘O Mankind, we have indeed granted you clothing that covers your shame and that is a means of adornment.’ (Al A’raaf, Verse: 26).
Upon receiving new clothes, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) would donate his old clothes and say, ‘whoever adorns new cloths, recites the following du’a and thereafter donates his old clothing to a poor Muslim, remains in the protection, patronage, and Divine veil of Almighty Allah ( SWT) throughout his life as well as after his death. As long as even one thread (of the donated clothing) remains on somebody’s body’
الحمد لله الذي كساني ما أواري به عورتي واتجمّل به في حياتي
‘Alhamdulillahi ladhi kassani ma uwari bihi ‘awratiy wa atajammalu bihi fi hayati’
(Sunan Tirmidhi, Hadith: 3560, Al Mustadrak, vol.4, pg.193)
In the narration of Sayyiduna Abdullah ibn Abbas (radiyallahu ‘anhuma) Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) is reported to have said, ‘He who gives cloth to any destitute Muslim, remains in the security of Allah as long as a single piece remains on his body.’ (Sunan Tirmidhi, Hadith: 2484; Shu’abul Iman, Hadith: 8575)
