Do not wear it like the Jews

Sunan Abi Dawud Book 2 Narration 245
Ibn ‘Umar reported the Messenger of Allah may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him as saying, or reported ‘Umar as saying :
if one of you has two pieces of cloth, he should pray in them; if he has a single piece of cloth, he should use it as a wrapper, and should not hang it upon the shoulder like the Jews.
Graded as authentic by Sheikh Alalbani
حَدَّثَنَا سُلَيْمَانُ بْنُ حَرْبٍ، حَدَّثَنَا حَمَّادُ بْنُ زَيْدٍ، عَنْ أَيُّوبَ، عَنْ نَافِعٍ، عَنِ ابْنِ عُمَرَ، قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم أَوْ قَالَ قَالَ عُمَرُ رضى الله عنه ‏ “‏ إِذَا كَانَ لأَحَدِكُمْ ثَوْبَانِ فَلْيُصَلِّ فِيهِمَا فَإِنْ لَمْ يَكُنْ إِلاَّ ثَوْبٌ وَاحِدٌ فَلْيَتَّزِرْ بِهِ وَلاَ يَشْتَمِلِ اشْتِمَالَ الْيَهُودِ ‏”‏
 صحيح   (الألباني
The only people who you really see wearing this type of clothing in this manner, have the same complexion as the ancient Israelites and have been trodden on for generations are in Africa, and of course we know what happened to their descendants, as prophesied in the Torah and in the Quran.
In the early days the only Jews were mainly from the bloodline of the Israelites but now most known Jews are not Israelites. What’s the difference between Jewish and being an Israelite?

In Musnad Ahmed Ibn Hanbal , Chapter 50 page 488 Authenticated by Sheikh Arnoot 

The Messenger of Allah may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him said, And the description of Moses may peace be upon him : ” And I saw Moses intensely black skinned”


The words used here are Asham Adam which in another example which shows us how Adam and intense blackness are related.


مسند أحمد بن حنبل ج 50 ص 488

قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه و سلم في وصفه لموسى عليه السلام: “و رأيت موسى أسحم آدم”. رواه أحمد وغيره وصححه الأرناؤوط

Ibn Mandhor narrates in Lisaan Al Arab AsSahm wal Suhaam wal Sahmah is black and Al Layth said that As Sahmah is black like the blackness of the crow.
