Dua upon wearing New Clothes
Hadhrat Abu Saeed Al-Khudri RadhiAllahu Anhu narrated that “When the Messenger of Allah (SallAllahu Alaihi Wasallam) would wear a new garment he would mention what it was, whether an ‘amamah (Turban) , a Qamis (shirt), or a Rida’(robe), then he would say:
«اللَّهُمَّ لَكَ الْحَمْدُ أَنْتَ كَسَوْتَنِيهِ أَسْأَلُكَ مِنْ خَيْرِهِ وَخَيْرِ مَا صُنِعَ لَهُ، وَأَعُوذُ بِكَ مِنْ شَرِّهِ وَشَرِّ مَا صُنِعَ لَهُ»
Allahumma lakal hamdo Anta kasautanihe, as’aloka min khairehi wa khaire ma sune’a lahu, wa aauzo beka min sharrehi wa sharre ma sune’a lahu.
Translation: O Allah, praise be to You! as You have clothed me with it, I ask You for its good and the good of that for which it was made, and I seek refuge in You from its evil and the evil of that for which it was made. (Abu Dawood, Tirmizi)
