The Yemeni Shawl
Traditional Scarf of the Prophet
There are many instances from the ahadith where the Prophet sal Allahu 'alayhi wasallam was reported to have worn a cotton Yemenite Shawl. One hadith specifically describes the Prophet sal Allahu 'alayhi wasallam as wearing a red stripy Yemeni Shawl.
Just to quote a few of these ahadith:
Sayyidina Anas radiy Allahu anhu narrates that the merciful Prophet sal Allahu alayhi wasallam in his last days before the departure from this world was supported by Sayyidina Usamah radiy Allahu anhu walking out of his sacred house covered with a Yemeni shawl. [Sharh us Sunnah, V6, P160, Dar-ul-Kutubul Ilmiyyah, Beirut]
Anas radiy Allahu ‘anhu narrates that from all the different types of clothing, Rasulullah sal Allahu ‘alayhi wasallam liked a Yemeni shawl the most. It was of several colours. [i.e. stripy]
Sayyidina Anas bin Malik radiy Allahu ‘anhu narrates that The Messenger of Allah sal Allahu 'alayhi wasallam out of all shawls preferred to cover himself with a 'Habirah' shawl (a cotton edged Yemeni shawl). [Sunan at-Tirmidhi]
Bara bin 'Azib Radi Allahu 'Anhu relates that: "Rasulullah Sal Allahu 'alayhi Wasallam was a man of medium build, he had broad shoulders (from which we may gather that he had a wide chest); he had dense hair which reached his ear-lobes; he wore a red striped shawl. never saw anybody or anything more handsome than him" [Shama'il at-Tirmidhi]
The Yemeni shawl also has been reported to have been the bridal gift between Sayyidina Ali Ibn Abi Talib and Sayyidah Fatimah (May Allah be pleased with them both).
