The Garments of Necessity, Beauty & Piety

Having explained how Satan deceived Adam and his wife, peace be upon them, to eat of the tree, thereby exposing their nakedness [Q.7:22-25], this verse speaks of God’s grace in how he teaches us to cover our nakedness and adorn ourselves with clothes. It also teaches us that there is a close link between the garments one wears to cover their nakedness and dress respectably, on the one hand, and being dutiful to God and cultivating inward virtues, on the other. This reflection is drawn, in the main, from al-Qurtubi’s tafsir.
