Hadith Explanation

Dua for New Dress

The Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “On wearing a new dress, a person should recite the following prayer, ‘Alhamdu lillahil-ladhi kasaanee maa uwaaree bihee auratee wa atajammalu bihee fee hayaatee.’ Whoever recites this prayer at the time of putting on a new dress, Allah will keep him under His care and protection in this life and in the life Hereafter.” [Tirmidhi]

The meaning of this Dua is: “Praise be to Allah who clad me with that with which I cover my shame, and with which I adorn myself in my life.”

To use this Dua when putting on a new dress, in exchange for Allah’s care and protection in this life and the next, is an excellent bargain. May we avail ourselves of it. Aameen.
