Ubaid bin Khalid (may Allah be pleased with him) 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 spiratual 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 Messenger of Allah ﷺ. I said, "O' Messenger of Allah, this is a simple lungi, how can one become proud, and it is necessary to look after it (keep it clean)?"Messenger of Allah ﷺ replied, "If you see no benefit in it, your following me has not ceased."While Messenger of Allah ﷺ was telling me this, I saw that his lungi reached till half his him."
حَدَّثَنَا مَحْمُودُ بْنُ غَيْلانَ، قَالَ‏:‏ حَدَّثَنَا أَبُو دَاوُدَ، عَنْ شُعْبَةَ، عَنِ الأَشْعَثِ بْنِ سُلَيْمٍ، قَالَ‏:‏ سَمِعْتُ عَمَّتِي، تُحَدِّثُ عَنْ عَمِّهَا، قَالَ‏:‏ بَيْنَا أَنَا أَمشِي بِالْمَدِينَةِ، إِذَا إِنْسَانٌ خَلْفِي يَقُولُ‏:‏ ارْفَعْ إِزَارَكَ، فَإِنَّهُ أَتْقَى وَأَبْقَى فَإِذَا هُوَ رَسُولُ اللهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم، فَقُلْتُ‏:‏ يَا رَسُولَ اللهِ إِنَّمَا هِيَ بُرْدَةٌ مَلْحَاءُ، قَالَ‏:‏ أَمَا لَكَ فِيَّ أُسْوَةٌ‏؟‏ فَنَظَرْتُ فَإِذَا إِزَارُهُ إِلَى نِصْفِ سَاقَيْهِ‏.‏
