It was narrated from ‘Amr bin Shu’aib, from his father, that his grandfather said:

“The Messenger of Allah ( may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him ) said: ‘Eat and drink, give charity and wear clothes, as long as that does not involve any extravagance or vanity.’” The chain of narrators of this Hadith is weak.

Allah permitted for his servants the lawful things, and prohibited them from consuming the unlawful things, and relieved them of their burden and the shackles which were upon them.

 Allah said ( interpretation of the meaning ):

{ O mankind, eat from whatever is on earth [that is] lawful and good and do not follow the footsteps of Satan. Indeed, he is to you a clear enemy.}

Quran ( 2: 168 )

Allah said ( interpretation of the meaning ):

{ O you who have believed, eat from the good things which We have provided for you and be grateful to Allah if it is [indeed] Him that you worship. }   

Quran ( 2 :172 )

This commandment is an interpretation and explanation of the meaning of these verses and the like. The Prophet (may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) permitted what Allaah permitted to his slaves. He said: " Eat and drink, give charity and wear clothes " he enjoined them to give charity as a matter of necessity. For the charity will dispel the wrath of the Lord, wards off stinginess and protects the believer against the torment of the fire.

As for the Islamic dress code; it has some guidelines including that men must not dress like women and vice versa.

The charity that is not followed up by harm or reminders is pleasing to Allah Almighty, and saves the Muslim from the tribulations in this world, and the torment of the Hereafter. It is a fortification for the wealth, a source of healing the diseases, a means of removing the sadness and to ward off the envy.

The Prophet ( may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) forbade extravagance and vanity in a wise manner, because he made it a condition for enjoying food, drink and clothing.
