Book Name:Shan e Usman e Ghani

Adhering to the Sunnah in clothing

Sayyiduna Salamah Bin Akwa’ رَضِىَ اللهُ تَعَالٰی عَنْهُ narrated: The Tahband (the large piece of cloth wrapped around the waist) of Ameer-ul-Mu`mineen Sayyiduna ‘Usman-e-Ghani رَضِىَ اللهُ تَعَالٰی عَنْهُ would come to mid-calf and he رَضِىَ اللهُ تَعَالٰی عَنْهُ used to describe its reason that ‘هٰكَذَا كَانَتۡ اِزۡرَةُ صَاحِبِيۡ’ i.e., The Tahband of the Holy Prophet صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم would also hang in the same way (i.e., by mid-calf).’

(Ash-Shumaail-ul-Muhammadiyyah, pp. 85)

 

Dear Islamic brothers! How excellent is the passion of following the Sunnah; even Sayyiduna ‘Usman-e-Ghani رَضِىَ اللهُ تَعَالٰی عَنْهُ used to follow the blessed Sunnah of the Noblest Prophet صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم in clothes. We should also wear white clothing, a green ‘Imamah (Turban) keeping long hair (Zulfayn) according to the Sunnah, growing a fistful beard, apply kohl in the eyes and applying oil on the head according to the Sunnah and thus becoming a practical example of the Sunnah as well as avoid fashionable tight clothing but also forbid others persuading them towards acting upon the Sunnah with great affection.

Dear Islamic brothers! Let’s listen to some titles of Sayyiduna ‘Usman-e-Ghani رَضِىَ اللهُ تَعَالٰی عَنْهُ along with its background description.

First title, Zun-Nurayn

He رَضِىَ اللهُ تَعَالٰی عَنْهُ is also known as Zun-Nurayn (i.e. possessor of two Noors), because the Noble Prophet صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم gave two of his honourable and blessed daughters’ hands in marriage one after the other to the honourable ‘Usman-e-Ghani رَضِىَ اللهُ تَعَالٰی عَنْهُ. Sayyidatuna Ruqayyah رَضِیَ اللهُ تَعَالٰی عَـنْهَا and Sayyidatuna Umm-e-Kulsoom رَضِیَ اللهُ تَعَالٰی عَـنْهَا. It is for this reason that he رَضِىَ اللهُ تَعَالٰی عَـنْهُ is called Zun-Nurayn. (Tahzeeb-ul-Asma, pp. 453) A’la Hadrat Imam Ahmad Raza Khan       عَـلَيْهِ رَحْمَةُ الـرَّحْمٰن states, pointing to this fact:
