Hadith Explanation

Clothes White

The Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “Wear white. It is the best. You ought to wear white clothes in life and bury your dead in a shroud made of white cloth.” [Tirmidhi]

The Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) used to wear white clothes. [Sahih Bukhari] He not only liked white for himself, but also directed the male members of his Ummah to wear white.

White clothes stay cleaner because the slightest stain shows instantly and is thus cleaned immediately. Coloured clothes, on the other hand, allow dirt to build up on them before it becomes noticable.
