Sura 74
Aya 4
وَثِيابَكَ فَطَهِّر

Ali Unal

And keep your clothing clean!1
  • This verse is about the absolute purity of the garments and should be considered together with the third verse as a preparation for the Prayer, which is ordered in the following verses. Or, if we take into account that the Qur’ān likens righteousness and piety to a garment (7: 26), in addition to its outward meaning, this verse may also signify deepening or growing in devotion to God.
    However, these orders should not be regarded as only pertaining to the Messenger, upon him be peace and blessings; they are directed to all believers.
