Abu Hurayrah (R) says, “When the Mesenger of Allah (S) put on a shirt, He (S) began with the right side .”

[Tirmizi]

It is related by Abu Musa Ash’ari (R) that the Prophet (S) said: “Gold and clothes of silk are allowed for the women of the community of my followers and forbidden for men.”

[Tirmizi]

Abdullah ibn Abbas (R) states that the Messenger of Allah (S) cursed men who exhibit a likeness with women (in dress, manners, behavior etc.) and women who exhibit a likeness with men.

[Bukhari]

Dihyah ibn Khalifah reports that once some Qubti sheets came to the Prophet (S) (as a gift), he gave one to me, saying: “Divide it into two parts. Use one part for making a shirt for yourself, and give the other to your wife to use as head covering.” Then, as I was about to leave, he (S) added: “Tell your wife to apply another piece of cloth under it (to serve as a lining) so that her hair and body are not visible (to others).”

[Abu Dawood]

Sayyidah ‘Aisha (R) narrates: “Once my sister (Asma), went to the Messenger of Allah (S) wearing a thin dres upon which he turned his face away from her and said: ‘O Asma! When a woman attains puberty, it is not proper for any part of her body to be visible except the face and hands.’”

[Abu Dawood]

Once the niece of Sayyidah ‘Aisha (R), Hafsa, the daughter of Abdul al-Rahman in Abu Bakr, came to her wearing a very thin covering for her head. Sayyidah ‘Aisha (R) took it off and tore it and gave her another sheet, of a thicker fiber, to use.
