Q:

Assalam Alaikum Wa Rehmatullahi Wa Barkatuhu
I would like to know that other than Eid day, of the two which day is better to wear new clothes, Alvida Friday or 27th Ramadan?

A:

Waalykum salam

Thank you for your Question

Wearing new clothes indicates that you’re happy and are celebrating that particular day.just like Eid day.

some maybe celebrating the Juma al-Wida or 27th Ramadan just like Eid day. But if you notice, both these days are important days and are the kind of days that Allah promises forgiveness for those who repent.

We also find the same concept in Hadith by Imam Ali (s):
کُلَّ یَومٍ لَا یُعصَیَ اللهُ تَعالَی فِیهِ فَهُوَ یَومُ عِیدٍ

Meaning: ‘Each day, that one does not commit a sin against Allah (az) is eid’

Hence, it doesn’t matter what day it is, the day you commit no sin is Eid and really calls for celebrations.

May ALLAH keep you successful InshaAllah
