His tahband and pajamas

The usual practice of the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam) was to wear a lungi (a sheet wrapped around the waist down to the knees). His wearing pajamas (loose trousers tied round the waist) is a matter about which there is difference of opinion. In some traditions, it occurs that he has worn pajamas and that his companions were seen wearing it. According to another tradition he was asked whether he ever wore Pajamas he replied: Yes, I have been required to cover my body. To cover a body, there is no other thing better than this.” [Khasail-e-Nabawi, Zadul Ma’ad]

A SUGGESTED TIMETABLE FOR THE MONTH OF RAMADAN

In order to maximise our time and perform our 'ibaadat with ease, we should try to follow a set routine or timetable.

1. We must wake up for suhoor as it is a Sunnah of our Rasool (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam). He has informed us that the food of suhoor is full of Barakah: "Eat suhoor, because in it lie great blessings." (Bukhari,Muslim)

We should arrange our time for suhoor in such a way that we are also able to perform at least 4-8 rak'at of tahajjud together with du'a for about 15 minutes or more. Rasoolullah (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) has said that the du'a in the darkness of the night (after tahajjud) is readily accepted by Allah. (Tirmizi)

Hadith of Sayyidina Adi ibn Hatim

Throw away this idol,” And Adi heard him recite the verse of surah al-Bara’ah (at-Tawbah) (They have taken their rabbis… 9:31) He then said (in explanation of the verse), “These people never worshipped their rabbis and monks but when their monks and rabbis made something lawful for them, they took it as that and when the monks and rabbis made it unlawful they took it as that.” (Tirmizi)
