Default Beautification in Prayer ? By: Shaykh Saalih al-Fawzan

By: Shaykh Saalih al-Fawzan
May Allaah treat you well. The questioner says: the imam of the masjid possesses a lot of wealth, but when he comes to the prayer; he wears a dirty Izaar (bottom waist wrap) and a dirty garment. When I say to him why doesn’t he purchase new garments for the prayer; he says whoever is humble for Allaah then he will raise him, so what is the ruling of his prayer?
This is not humbleness to Allaah. Allaah says;
“O children of Adam, take your adornment within every masjid…” (7:31)
Meaning in every prayer, and the adornment here does not only mean covering the private area, but the adornment comprises of clothing used for beautification for the prayer; while facing the Lord of everything that exist. You are standing between Him, so you beautify yourself with whatever you are able to from beautification in appreciation for the prayer and glorification of the position between yourself and your Lord.
This is something required and as mentioned in the Hadeeth:
“if Allaah expands His favors upon, then display them”
And the prophet said:
“Verily Allaah loves that the signs of His favors are seen upon His servants”
This is not from humility, yes; you should not wear extravagant boasting clothing, so you become someone who is looked at. You should wear moderate clothing which are clean and beautiful, as the prophet ??? ???? ? ??? said:
“Verily Allaah is beautiful and He loves beauty”
