The Hadith (Inspired Sayings) of
Manners in Public and Dress
Start on the
right side -- Sahih Buhari-- Volume 1, Book 4, Number 169:
The Prophet used to like to start from the right side on wearing shoes, combing
his hair and cleaning or washing himself and on doing anything else.
Beating for drunkeness -- Volume 3, Book 38, Number 509:
bin Al-Harith: When An-Nuaman or his son was brought in a state of drunkenness,
Allah's Apostle ordered all those who were present in the house to beat him. I
was one of those who beat him. We beat him with shoes and palm-leaf stalks.
Dress -- Malik Muwatta-- Book 48, Number 48.4.7:
related to me from Malik from Muslim ibn Abi Maryam from Abu Salih that Abu Hurayra
said, "Women who are naked even though they are wearing clothes, go astray and
make others go astray, and they will not enter the Garden and they will not find
its scent, and its scent is experienced from as far as the distance travelled
in five hundred years."
Fazlul Maulana-- Al Hadis, Book 1, Chap.
6, No. 140- Abu Raihanah reported that the Messenger of Allah forbade ten things:
Sharpening teeth, anointing palms, plucking out hairs, a man lying with another
man without under-garments, a woman lying with another woman without under-garments,
a man putting on silk underneath his dress like foreigners, or his putting on
silk upon his two shoulders like foreigners, plunder, riding on leopards, and
using a seal excepting for one who is a ruler. Attested by Abu Daud, Nisai.
Fazlul Maulana-- Al Hadis, Book 1, Chap. 6, no. 149- Umme-Salamah
reported that the Prophet went to her (sexually) while she was putting
on a veil over her head. He said: 'Use one fold, not two.' Attested by Abu Daud.
Fazlul Maulana-- Al Hadis, Book 1, Chap. 6, No. 150-
Ibn Omar reported: I passed by the Prophet while I had looseness in my trousers.
He said: 'O Abdullah! Raise up your trousers.' So I lifted them up. Then he said:
'Lift them more.' Then I lifted them more. I continued afterwards to make them
short. Some people asked: 'Up to what place?' He said: 'Up to the middle of two
hind legs.' Attested by Muslim This is Islamic canon law, not just some silly
Fazlul Maulana-- Al Hadis, Vol. 1, p. 614, that
there is a curse on women who wear shoes. He said shoes are only for men.
Fazlul Maulana-- Al Hadis, Vol. 1, p. 738 Abul Malih reported
that the Messenger of Allah said, "Circumcision is Sunnat (required by Islamic
law) for males and optional for females." Attested by Ahmad and Baihaqi.
The Prophet of Allah also required ablution cleansing for passing air, but
only if you could hear it, and he once preached a whole sermon against passing
air in the mosque. It seems that the faithful were making sport of this, and the
Prophet was offended. Is it not peculiar that the Bible prophets never took up
this timeless message of truth? Fazlul Maulana-- Al Hadis, Vol. 1, p.
205 (50); p. 657 (29).
