Back to book

مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ يَحْيَى عَنْ أَحْمَدَ بْنِ مُحَمَّدٍ عَنِ ابْنِ مَحْبُوبٍ عَنِ الْعَلَاءِ بْنِ رَزِينٍ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ مُسْلِمٍ قَالَ سَأَلْتُ أَبَا جَعْفَرٍ ( عليه السلام ) عَنِ الرَّجُلِ يَلْبَسُ الثَّوْبَ الْجَدِيدَ قَالَ يَقُولُ اللَّهُمَّ اجْعَلْهُ ثَوْبَ يُمْنٍ وَ تُقًى وَ بَرَكَةٍ اللَّهُمَّ ارْزُقْنِي فِيهِ حُسْنَ عِبَادَتِكَ وَ عَمَلًا بِطَاعَتِكَ وَ أَدَاءَ شُكْرِ نِعْمَتِكَ الْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ الَّذِي كَسَانِي مَا أُوَارِي بِهِ عَوْرَتِي وَ أَتَجَمَّلُ بِهِ فِي النَّاسِ .


1. Muhammad ibn Yahya has narrated from Ahmad ibn Muhammad, from ibn Mahbub from al-‘Ala’ ibn Razin from Muhammad ibn Muslim who has said the following: “I once asked abu Ja’far, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, about the case of a man who wears new clothes. He (the Imam) said, ’He must say, ‘O Lord, make it the dress of good fortune and blessings. O Lord, grant me the opportunity to worship You properly and appreciate Your bounties. All praise belongs to Allah who has clothed me with something whereby I cover my private parts and dress up myself before the people.”’

عَلِيُّ بْنُ إِبْرَاهِيمَ عَنْ أَبِيهِ عَنِ النَّوْفَلِيِّ عَنِ السَّكُونِيِّ عَنْ أَبِي عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ( عليه السلام ) قَالَ قَالَ أَمِيرُ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ ( عليه السلام ) عَلَّمَنِي رَسُولُ اللَّهِ ( صلى الله عليه وآله ) إِذَا لَبِسْتُ ثَوْباً جَدِيداً أَنْ أَقُولَ الْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ الَّذِي كَسَانِي مِنَ اللِّبَاسِ مَا أَتَجَمَّلُ بِهِ فِي النَّاسِ اللَّهُمَّ اجْعَلْهَا ثِيَابَ بَرَكَةٍ أَسْعَى فِيهَا لِمَرْضَاتِكَ وَ أَعْمُرُ فِيهَا مَسَاجِدَكَفَقَالَ يَا عَلِيُّ مَنْ قَالَ ذَلِكَ لَمْ يَتَقَمَّصْهُ حَتَّى يَغْفِرَ اللَّهُ لَهُ وَ فِي نُسْخَةٍ أُخْرَى لَمْ يُصِبْهُ شَيْ‏ءٌ يَكْرَهُهُ .


2. Ali ibn Ibrahim has narrated from his father from al-Nawfaliy from al-Sakuniy who has said the following: “Abu ‘Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, has stated this Hadith. ‘’Amir al-Mu’minin has said, “The Messenger of Allah, O Allah, grant compensation to Muhammad and his family worthy of their services to Your cause, taught me when wearing new clothes to say, ‘All praise belongs to Allah who has dressed me with clothes to beautify myself before the people. O Lord, make it the dress of blessings with which I will try to seek Your pleasure and build Your Masajid.’” He (the Messenger of Allah) then said to me, “O Ali whoever says it, before wearing a shirt Allah forgives him.” Another version of this Hadith says, “He will not experience anything which he dislikes.’””

5. Muhammad ibn Yahya has narrated from Ahmad ibn Muhammad from al-Qasim ibn Yahya from his grandfather al-Hassan ibn Rashid from Muhammad ibn Muslim who has said the following: “Abu ‘Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, has said that ’Amir al-Mu’minin has said, ‘When Allah, most High, dresses a believing man with a new clothe he must take wudu. He then should perform two Rak’at Salat (prayer) in which he should recite the first chapter of al-Quran, verse 255 of chapter two, Chapter 112 and Chapter 97 of al-Quran. He then should praise Allah who has covered his private parts and decorated him before people. He should say a great deal, “There is no means and power without Allah.” He will not disobey Allah in such dress as long as a fiber thereof remains with him and an angel asks for him forgiveness and mercy.’”

6. Muhammad ibn Yahya has narrated from Ali ibn al-Husayn al-Naysaburiy from ‘Abd Allah ibn Muhammad from Ali ibn al-Rayyan from Yunus from ‘Umar ibn Yazid who has said the following: “I once wanted to visit abu ‘Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al-Salam. I dressed up and spread my Taylisan (pallium) which was new and I liked it very much. Somewhere on the road the camel gave me a hard time and it (my dress) was torn in pieces all over. I became depress very much. I then met abu ‘ Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, he looked at my Taylisan and asked, ‘Why do I see your cloth ripped apart?’ I then informed him (the Imam) about what had happened. He (the Imam) said, ‘O ‘Umar, whenever you will wear a new pair of clothes say, “No one deserves worship except Allah. Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah.’ You will remain safe from misfortunes and if you like something do not mention it very often because mentioning it causes you great damage. If you need something from a person do not revile him behind his back because Allah drops it in his heart.’”
