(948) The two Eid and sprucing oneself up on them
Narrated `Abdullah bin `Umar: `Umar bought a silk cloak from the market, took it to Allah's Apostle and said, O Allah's Apostle! Take it and adorn yourself with it during the `Id and when the delegations visit you. Allah's Apostle (p.b.u.h) replied, This dress is for those who have no share (in the Hereafter). After a long period Allah's Apostle (p.b.u.h) sent to `Umar a cloak of silk brocade. `Umar came to Allah's Apostle (p.b.u.h) with the cloak and said, O Allah's Apostle! You said that this dress was for those who had no share (in the Hereafter); yet you have sent me this cloak. Allah's Apostle said to him, Sell it and fulfill your needs by it.
