[Sunnah Series] Wearing Shoes, Dressing and Undressing

Wearing Shoes

Put shoes on starting with the right foot and take them off starting with the left.

The Prophet salAllahu ‘alayhi wa sallam said: When you put shoes on, begin with the right and when you remove them, begin with the left. Or, wear them both, leave them both off.

The Muslim does this many times during the day and night – when entering and leaving the Masjid, the bathroom, the house, when going to work etc. Whenever the Muslim puts on or removes his shoes in accordance with the Sunnah, with this intention in mind, he obtains a great reward. And all his actions of harakaat and sakanaat will then be according to Sunnah.

Dressing and Undressing

► Say Al-Tasmiyah when dressing or undressing.

Imam An-Nawawi said: To say the tasmiyah is preferred in all actions.

► Use the Prophet’s (salAllahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) supplication.

When he put on a Thawb, long shirt, upper garment or turban, he would say:

Dressing Up Sunnah

► Begin with the right side.

When you wear clothes and perform wudhu begin with the right.

► Begin taking clothes off from the left side. (There is no specific evidence for this, but it seems that general evidence indicating to begin with the right for things that are good and the left for the opposite have been used.)

Note: Recite Bismillah – for whoever recites Bismillah upon undressing is protected from Shaytan’s looking at one’s private parts.
