Du’a for wearing clothes
Clothing is an essential part of our daily living and not only is it used to cover our bodies and allow us to remain modest, but it also helps us to keep warm and adorn ourselves.
It is therefore important that we show our gratefulness to Allah Ta’aala for this very great blessing.
So how can we thank Allah Ta’ala? Well, we can start by reading the following beautiful dua taught to us by our amazing Nabi ﷺ.

الْحَمْدُ للهِ الَّذِي كَسَانِي هَذَا الثَّوْبَ وَرَزَقَنِيهِ مِنْ غَيْرِ حَوْلٍ مِّنِّي وَلاَ قُوَّةٍ
Alhmadulillahil ladhee kasaani haadhath thawba warazaqaneehi min ghayri hawlim minnee walaa quwwah
Translation: All praise is due to Allah who has clothed me with this garment and provided me with it without any effort or power of mine.
