Hadith Explanation

Silk and Gold

The Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “Wearing gold and silk has been made unlawful for the men of my Ummah but permissible for its women.” [Tirmidhi]

Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) has entrusted this Ummah with the duty of taking Islam to the rest of the world. Muhammad (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) was the last prophet, in a long succession of prophets, sent by Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) to guide people to Jannah.

With the demise of the last Messenger, this duty has now fallen on the shoulders of the group of people who claim to understand his message and be his followers. Should they become accustomed to the luxuries of this world, the softness of silk and the glamour of gold, how then can they be expected to bear the hardships to be endured in the Path of Allah?
