Also our clothes affect our mind and heart. ''Man tasahba-ha biqomihi fa huwa minhum'' should be kept in mind before choosing the clothes.

Clothes which are close to sunnah always boost our Iman and help us to gain the taste of piety and purity.

Hazrat Molana Rashid Ahmad Gangohi rh.a would wear fine attire, in contrast with Hazrat Molana Qasim Nanotwi rh.a who would wear too simple clothes. Other People couldn't recognise him that he was a great alim. Once a stranger asked him the rates of molasses as if he were a vendor coming from a weekly market, but he didn't mind it, he said that he wasn't coming from there.

Once he happened to pray maghrib salah in a village masjid. Imam didn't come so the people asked him to lead the congregational prayer. By mistake he recited surah al naas in first rakat and surah falaq in second rakat. After the completion of salah, they objected on it. He said that the salah was valid despite that mistake. One of them said that Molana Qasim had said that the recitation of surahs should be in correct order (as mentioned in Quran). Then, he very humbly replied,''It's me, Qasim''

Once one of his student asked him why he didn't wear fine clothes like Hazrat Molana Rashid Ahmad Gangohi rh.a. He replied that His nafs e Ammarah was completely subdued and his own nafs wasn't under control.

This is just the examples how Molana Qasim Nanotwi rh.a was humble himself.

Hazrat Molana Rashid Ahmad Gangohi rh.a was also on that level of Taqwa where praise or condemnation doesn't affect the person. He had no vanity, so fine attire couldn't affect him at all.

Hazrat Molana Asharf Ali Thanwi rh.a in one of his book said,'' Put on extremely simple clothes to eliminate your vanity that people begin to think of you a very low level man''.

It's a great Mujahida. Everybody can't follow this suggestion. To eliminate the vanity from our heart and mind is extremely tough.

In one of the book of Hakimul Islam Hazrat Qari Tayyab rh.a, I read: that the elimination of vanity and gaining the level of Istehzar e Ilahi (everytime it's ingrained in our heart and mind that Allah swt is watching ''me'') are the toughest qualities to get, afterwards the level of wilayat starts.
