Sunan an-Nasa'i 1896

It was narrated from Samurah that the Prophet ﷺ said:
"Wear white clothes for they are purer and better, and shroud your dead in them"

أَخْبَرَنَا عَمْرُو بْنُ عَلِيٍّ، قَالَ أَنْبَأَنَا يَحْيَى بْنُ سَعِيدٍ، قَالَ سَمِعْتُ سَعِيدَ بْنَ أَبِي عَرُوبَةَ، يُحَدِّثُ عَنْ أَيُّوبَ، عَنْ أَبِي قِلاَبَةَ، عَنْ أَبِي الْمُهَلَّبِ، عَنْ سَمُرَةَ، عَنِ النَّبِيِّ صلى الله عليه وسلم قَالَ " الْبَسُوا مِنْ ثِيَابِكُمُ الْبَيَاضَ فَإِنَّهَا أَطْهَرُ وَأَطْيَبُ وَكَفِّنُوا فِيهَا مَوْتَاكُمْ "

Notes

Comments from Darussalam:

Even slight dirt and filth becomes evident in white cloth. It is, therefore, cleaned soon, and it stays clean and tidy. Dirt is not easily noticed in colored cloths.
