The Lungi Of Rasoolullah
Hazrat Abu Burdah bin Musa Al-Ash'ari radiyallahu anhu reports, "Aishah radyiallahu anha showed us a patched sheet, and the thick coarse lungi, then said, "When Rasoolullah sallallahu alaihe wasallam passed away, he was wearing these clothes.

حَدَّثَنَا أَحْمَدُ بْنُ مَنِيعٍ، قَالَ‏:‏ حَدَّثَنَا إِسْمَاعِيلُ بْنُ إِبْرَاهِيمَ، قَالَ‏:‏ حَدَّثَنَا أَيُّوبُ، عَنْ حُمَيْدِ بْنِ هِلالٍ، عَنْ أَبِي بُرْدَةَ، قَالَ‏:‏ أَخْرَجَتْ إِلَيْنَا عَائِشَةُ، كِسَاءً مُلَبَّدًا، وَإِزَارًا غَلِيظًا، فَقَالَتْ‏:‏ قُبِضَ رُوحُ رَسُولِ اللهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم، فِي هَذَيْنِ‏.‏

Hazrat Ubaid bin Khalid radiyallahu anhu says, "I was once going to Madinah Munawwarah. I heard a person from behind me say, "Wear the lungi higher because it avoids physical and spiratual najaasah (impurities)." (The lungi will remain cleaner and will not become dirty by being dragged on the ground.)

When I turned to see who was talking, I saw that it was Rasoolullah sallallahu alaihe wasallam. I said, "O' Rasoolullah, this is a simple lungi, how can one become proud, and it is necessary to look after it (keep it clean)?"

Rasoolullah sallallahu alaihe wasallam replied, "If you see no benefit in it, your following me has not ceased."

While Rasoolullah sallallahu alaihe wasallam was telling me this, I saw that his lungi reached till half his him."

حَدَّثَنَا مَحْمُودُ بْنُ غَيْلانَ، قَالَ‏:‏ حَدَّثَنَا أَبُو دَاوُدَ، عَنْ شُعْبَةَ، عَنِ الأَشْعَثِ بْنِ سُلَيْمٍ، قَالَ‏:‏ سَمِعْتُ عَمَّتِي، تُحَدِّثُ عَنْ عَمِّهَا، قَالَ‏:‏ بَيْنَا أَنَا أَمشِي بِالْمَدِينَةِ، إِذَا إِنْسَانٌ خَلْفِي يَقُولُ‏:‏ ارْفَعْ إِزَارَكَ، فَإِنَّهُ أَتْقَى وَأَبْقَى فَإِذَا هُوَ رَسُولُ اللهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم، فَقُلْتُ‏:‏ يَا رَسُولَ اللهِ إِنَّمَا هِيَ بُرْدَةٌ مَلْحَاءُ، قَالَ‏:‏ أَمَا لَكَ فِيَّ أُسْوَةٌ‏؟‏ فَنَظَرْتُ فَإِذَا إِزَارُهُ إِلَى نِصْفِ سَاقَيْهِ‏.‏

Hazrat Salamah bin Akwa radiyallahu anhu says, "Uthman radiyallahu anhu wore his lungi till the middle of his shin and said, "This is how my master Rasoolullah sallallahu alaihe wasallam wore his lungi."

حَدَّثَنَا سُوَيْدُ بْنُ نَصْرٍ، قَالَ‏:‏ حَدَّثَنَا عَبْدُ اللهِ بْنُ الْمُبَارَكِ، عَنْ مُوسَى بْنِ عُبَيْدَةَ، عَنِ إِيَاسِ بْنِ سَلَمَةَ بْنِ الأَكْوَعِ، عَنْ أَبِيهِ، قَالَ‏:‏ كَانَ عُثْمَانُ بْنُ عَفَّانَ، يَأْتَزِرُ إِلَى أَنْصَافِ سَاقَيْهِ، وَقَالَ‏:‏ هَكَذَا كَانَتْ إِزْرَةُ صَاحِبِي، يَعْنِي النَّبِيَّ صلى الله عليه وسلم‏.‏

Hazrat Hudhaifah bin Al-Yamaan radiyallahu anhu reports that Rasoolullah sallallahu alaihe wasallam caught the shin of my leg, or of his own leg and said, "This is where the lungi should reach, and if not, then a little further down, and if not, then the lungi has no right on the ankle." (For this reason the lungi should not reach over the ankles.

حَدَّثَنَا قُتَيْبَةُ بْنُ سَعِيدٍ، قَالَ‏:‏ حَدَّثَنَا أَبُو الأَحْوَصِ، عَنْ أَبِي إِسْحَاقَ، عَنْ مُسْلِمِ بْنِ نَذِيرٍ، عَنْ حُذَيْفَةَ بْنِ الْيَمَانِ، قَالَ‏:‏ أَخَذَ رَسُولُ اللهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم، بِعَضَلَةِ سَاقِي أَوْ سَاقِهِ، فَقَالَ‏:‏ هَذَا مَوْضِعُ الإِزَارِ، فَإِنْ أَبَيْتَ فَأَسْفَلَ، فَإِنْ أَبَيْتَ فَلا حَقَّ لِلإِزَارِ فِي الْكَعْبَيْنِ‏.‏
