Prohibition of Wearing Saffron-Colored Dress

1798. Anas (May Allah be pleased with him) said: The Prophet (sallallaahu ’alayhi wa sallam) prohibited men from wearing saffron-dyed clothes.
[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].

1799. `Abdullah bin `Amr bin Al-`As (May Allah be pleased with them) said: The Prophet (sallallaahu ’alayhi wa sallam) saw me dressed in two saffron-coloured garments and asked, “Has your mother commanded you to wear these?” I asked him, “Shall I wash them out?” He replied, “You had better set them to fire.”

Another narration is: “These are garments of the disbelievers. So do not wear them.”
