This judgment applies to all kinds of clothing. So, we ask Allah (SWT) for safety. Abu Hurairah (RA) (may Allah (SWT) be pleased with him) said, "While a man was praying, dragging his garment on the ground, the Prophet  (SM) of Allah (SWT) said to him,

"Go and make Wudu' (ablution) again" he went and made ablution and came. The Prophet (SM) said, "Go and make Wudu' again. A man asked, O Messengerof Allah (SWT), why did you order him to renew his Wudu'? The Prophet (SM)  kept silent for a while, then he said, "He was praying while letting his garment to reach the ground, and Allah (SWT) does not accept the prayer of such a person."1

When the Messenger of Allah (SWT)  said that, "Whoever lets the hem of his garment drag on the ground out of pride, Allah (SWT) will not look at him", Abu Bakr (Ra)  (may Allah  (SWT)  be pleased with him) said, "0 Messenger of Allah (SWT) my garment is always dragging on the ground unless I restrain it. The Messenger of Allah (SWT) said, "You are not one of those who do it out of pride."2

56) Men Wearing Silk or Gold

In the two Sahihs, the Messenger of Allah (SWT)  is reported to have said, "He who wears silk in this worldly life, will not wear it in the Hereafter.1 This is a general rule which applies to all classesof people, whether soldiers or otherwise. The Prophet (SM)  said,

"Wearing gold and silk has been made unlawful for the men of my community but permissible for its women."2 On the authority of Huzaifa Ibn AI- Yaman (may Allah (SWT) be pleased with him) who said, "The Messenger of Allah (SWT)  made it unlawful for us to drink or eat in the vessel of gold or silver, to wear or set on silk."3

Therefore, he who makes wearing silk by men permissible, he is a disbeliever. The Prophet  (SM)  made it lawful only for the one who suffers from a certain disease such as scabies and for the soldiers in time of fighting. As for wearing silk for only ornament by men, it is unanimously prohibited. Whether it is a hat or a turban. Likewise, if the most of the cloth is silk, it is also unlawful. Wearing gold by men is also unlawful, whether it is a ring or a sheathe of sword. It is unlawful to wear or make it. Once, the Prophet (SM)  saw a man wearing a ring of gold, took it off from his hand and said, "It is an easier act for anyone of you to handle afire brand than to do such thing.4

Likewise, the embroidery of gold on embellished turban is also unlawful. As for boys wearing gold and silver, the scholars are in disagreement. Some of them consider it permissible and some others consider it unlawful for the generality of the following sayingof the Prophet (SM) , "These two (gold and silk) are unlawful for men ofmy Ummah , but lawful for its women.5 Thus, boys are included in this prohibition. This is also the opinion of Imam Ahmad and other (may Allah (SWT) be pleased with them)

57) Fleeing of the Slave Muslim reported in his Sahih that,

"The Messenger of Allah (SWT)  said, "When the slave flee away (from his master), his/her prayer will not be accepted.1 The Prophet (SM)  is also reported to have said, "Any slave that flees away, the pledge of Islam is cleared from him.2 Ibn Khuzaimah reported in his Sahih from the hadith of Jabir who said, "The Messenger of Allah (SWT)  said,

"There are three people whose prayer will not be accepted, nor will their good deeds be raised up to the sky, a fleeing slave until he returns to his master, a rebellious woman until her husband be satisfiedwith her and a drunkard until his mind is restored. "

Fudalah Ibn 'Ubaid reported that, "There are three people who will be neglected by Allah (SWT), a man who severe the community, disobeys his ruler (Imam) and died in such state, a fleeing slave and a woman whose husband is absent and provided her with all her needs, but she unveiled herself after his absence."3
