Abu Burdah bin Musa Al-Ash’ari radiyallahu anhu reports, “Aishah radyiallahu anha showed us a patched sheet, and the thick coarse lungi, then said, “When Rasoolullah Sallallahu Alayhi wasallam passed away, he was wearing these clothes.
Shama’il al-Muhammadiya, Book of The Lungi Of Prophet of Allah ﷺ, Hadith 112
Ubaid bin Khalid radiyallahu anhu says, “I was once going to Madinah Munawwarah. I heard a person from behind me say, “Wear the lungi higher because it avoids physical and spiritual najaasah (impurities).” (The lungi will remain cleaner and will not become dirty by being dragged on the ground.)When I turned to see who was talking, I saw that it was Rasoolullah Sallallahu Alayhi wasallam. I said, “O’ Rasoolullah, this is a simple lungi, how can one become proud, and it is necessary to look after it (keep it clean)?”Rasoolullah Sallallahu Alayhi wasallam replied, “If you see no benefit in it, your following me has not ceased.”While Rasoolullah Sallallahu Alayhi wasallam was telling me this, I saw that his lungi reached till half his him.”
Shama’il al-Muhammadiya, Book of The Lungi Of Prophet of Allah ﷺ, Hadith 113
Salamah bin Akwa radiyallahu anhu says, “Uthman radiyallahu anhu wore his lungi till the middle of his shin and said, “This is how my master Rasoolullah Sallallahu Alayhi wasallam wore his lungi.”
Shama’il al-Muhammadiya, Book of The Lungi Of Prophet of Allah ﷺ, Hadith 114
Hudhaifah bin Al-Yamaan radiyallahu anhu reports that Rasoolullah Sallallahu Alayhi wasallam caught the shin of my leg, or of his own leg and said, “This is where the lungi should reach, and if not, then a little further down, and if not, then the lungi has no right on the ankle.” (For this reason, the lungi should not reach over the ankles.
