Hadith Explanation

Dressed but Naked

As one of the minor signs before the Day of Judgment, Rasul Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) mentioned: “There will be women who will be dressed but they will be naked. Their heads will be like the humps of camels. They will not enter Jannah and will not even smell the scent of Jannah while it can be smelt from a far distance.” [Sahih Muslim] Another hadith mentions that one can smell the scent of Jannah from a distance traveled in seventy years.

This hadith is about Muslim women as those without eeman wouldn’t be entering Jannah anyway.  Muslim women will have clothes on but they will be so tight and figure hugging that all parts of their bodies will be on display. Today we see clothes marketed that are so tight that all they conceal is the color of the skin. This hadith also applies to very thin and see-through clothes. The head looking like the hump of a camel probably means some sort of hair style.

Rasul Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “Modesty brings nothing but good.” [Sahih Bukhari] Hazrat Uthman (radi Allahu anhu) was well known for his modesty. So much so that even the angels were mindful of it. Hazrat Fatima (radi Allahu anha) is also well known for her sense of haya and modesty.
