Dua for To someone wearing a new garment


Islam is a complete religion. It teaches us the etiquette for each and every aspect of Life. We learn manners for not just what relates to us but also to others. Reciting the dua for someone who is wearing a new garment is among those etiquettes. 


Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ) appreciated and complimented everyone around him. So much that everyone would feel loved in his presence. His sunnah is to be well-mannered and the best in Ikhlaq (pleasant behavior). We learn from reliable sources of Hadiths how when he saw someone wear a new garment, and he would pray for and upon them.

 

We see his habit of appreciation modeled in one anecdote reported in Sahih al-Bukhari 5845. Umme Khalid bint Khalid (رَضِيَ ٱللَّٰهُ عَنْهَا) narrated that Allah's Messenger (ﷺ) called upon her, dressed her with a black khamisa with his own hands, and prayed, "May you live so long that you will wear out many garments." In a hadith recorded in Sunan Abi Dawud 4020, we learn the dua we should invoke on someone wearing a new garment. Umrah bin Aun (رَضِيَ ٱللَّٰهُ عَنْهُ) narrated that Abu Nadrah said: When any of the Companions of the Prophet (ﷺ) put on a new garment, the Prophet (ﷺ) blessed them with this prayer, "May you wear it out and may Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَتَعَالَى) give you another in its place."

Indeed, in the creation of the heavens and the earth and the alternation of the night and the day are signs for those of understanding.190 Who remember Allah while standing or sitting or (lying) on their sides and give thought to the creation of the heavens and the earth, (saying), "Our Lord, You did not create this aimlessly; exalted are You (above such a thing); then protect us from the punishment of the Fire.191 Our Lord, indeed whoever You admit to the Fire - You have disgraced him, and for the wrongdoers there are no helpers.192 Our Lord, indeed we have heard a caller calling to faith, (saying), 'Believe in your Lord,' and we have believed. Our Lord, so forgive us our sins and remove from us our misdeeds and cause us to die with the righteous.193 Our Lord, and grant us what You promised us through Your messengers and do not disgrace us on the Day of Resurrection. Indeed, You do not fail in (Your) promise.194 And their Lord responded to them, "Never will I allow to be lost the work of (any) worker among you, whether male or female; you are of one another. So those who emigrated or were evicted from their homes or were harmed in My cause or fought or were killed - I will surely remove from them their misdeeds, and I will surely admit them to gardens beneath which rivers flow as reward from Allah , and Allah has with Him the best reward."195 Be not deceived by the (uninhibited) movement of the disbelievers throughout the land.196 (It is but) a small enjoyment; then their (final) refuge is Hell, and wretched is the resting place.197 But those who feared their Lord will have gardens beneath which rivers flow, abiding eternally therein, as accommodation from Allah . And that which is with Allah is best for the righteous.198 And indeed, among the People of the Scripture are those who believe in Allah and what was revealed to you and what was revealed to them, (being) humbly submissive to Allah . They do not exchange the verses of Allah for a small price. Those will have their reward with their Lord. Indeed, Allah is swift in account.199 O you who have believed, persevere and endure and remain stationed and fear Allah that you may be successful.200
