Enormities: Dragging The Hem Of One’s Garment Out Of Conceit

This is another article in the chapter Enormities from the classical manual on Sharia called Reliance of the Traveller. The articles are posted one by one in the order they are given in the book.

p52.0 DRAGGING THE HEM OF ONE’S GARMENT OUT OF CONCEIT
p52.1 Allah Most High says,
” … Nor walk haughtily through the land”
(Koran 31:18).
p52.2 The Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) said:
(1) “The caftan of the Muslim comes down to midcalf, there being no harm in what is between this and the anklebones, though any of it below the anklebones is in hell. Whoever lets the hem of his garment drag on the ground out of pride, Allah will not look at him.”
(2) “While a man was walking along in a new set of clothes, with a swagger to his step, pleased with himself, and his hair combed down, Allah caused the earth to swallow him, and he will keep sinking until the Last Day.”
