In the Quran, Allah tells us: “O children of Adam! We have sent down for you clothing to cover your nakedness and as an adornment. But, the best of clothing is mindfulness of Allah. This is one of Allah’s Signs, so that you may take heed.” [Quran, 7:26]

Our attire is not just a fabric we wear; it’s a reflection of our inner state, a shield safeguarding us, and a silent language speaking volumes about our respect for ourselves and our Creator. It’s an act of mindfulness, a conscious choice that connects us with Allah and serves as a constant reminder of our sacred bond with Him.

The Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) said: “Allah is more deserving of modesty than people are.” [Tirmidhi; Abu Dawud]
