أعوذ بالله من الشيطان الرجيم

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Allah, the Almighty said,

{Nor walk haughtily through the land: For Allah loveth not any arrogant boaster.}

(Luqman: 18)

The Prophet (pbuh) said,

“Any part of the caftan of the Muslim below the anklebones is in Hell.”( previously mentioned)

He, (pbuh) said,

“Allah will not look at the one who haughtily drags his garment.”( Baihaqi in Shu’ab Al-Iman)

The Prophet (pbuh) said,

“There are three people whom Allah will not speak to, look at, or exonerate on the day of judgment, and who will have a painful torment: he who wears the hem of his garment low (out of pride), he who reminds recipients of his charity to them, and he who sells merchandise swearing that he paid more for it than he actually did.”( Bukhari)

In another narration, it is reported that,

“While a man was walking along in a new set of clothes, with a swagger to his step, pleased with himself and his hair combed down, Allah caused the earth to swallow him and he will keep sinking until the last day.”( previously mentioned)

The Prophet (pbuh) is reported to have said,

“He who, out of pride, drags his garment, Allah will not look at him on the Day of Judgment.”( previously mentioned)

The Prophet (pbuh) is also reported to have said,

“D ragging applies to one’s garment, shirt and turban. He who, out of pride, drags any of them, Allah will not look at him on the Day of Judgment.”( previously mentioned)

The Prophet (pbuh) is also reported to have said,

“The caftan of the Muslim comes down to mid calf, there being no harm in what is between this and the ankle bones, though any of it below the ankle bones is in Hell.”( Abu Dawud)

This judgment applies to all kinds of clothing. So, we ask Allah for safety. Abu Hurairah (may Allah be pleased with him) said,

“While a man was praying, dragging his garment on the ground, the Prophet of Allah said to him,

“Go and make Wudu’ (ablution) again” he went and made ablution and came. The Prophet (pbuh) said,

“Go and make Wudu’ again.” A man asked, O Messenger of Allah, why did you order him to renew his Wudu’? The Prophet (pbuh) kept silent for a while, then he said, “He was praying while letting his garment to reach the ground, and Allah does not accept the prayer of such a person.” (Abu Dawud)

When the Messenger of Allah (pbuh) said that,

“Whoever lets the hem of his garment drag on the ground out of pride, Allah will not look at him”, Abu Bakr (may Allah be pleased with him) said, “O Messenger of Allah my garment is always dragging on the ground unless I restrain it. The Messenger of Allah (pbuh) said, You are not one of those who do it out of pride.”( Abu Dawud)
