عن حُذَيْفَةَ بْنِ الْيَمَانِ -رضي الله عنهما- مرفوعاً: «لا تلْبَسُوا الحرير ولا الديباج، ولا تشربوا في آنية الذهب والفضة ولا تأكلوا في صِحَافِهِمَا؛ فإنَّهَا لهم في الدنيا ولكم في الآخرة».
[صحيح.] - [متفق عليه.]

Hudhayfah ibn al-Yamān (may Allah be pleased with him) reported that the Prophet (may Allah's peace and blessings be upon him) said: "Do not wear silk or brocade, and do not drink from gold or silver vessels, nor eat in platters made therefrom, for they are for them in this world and for you in the Hereafter."

Explanation

The Prophet (may Allah's peace and blessings be upon him) forbade men from wearing silk and brocade, since wearing them – for men – implies softness and femininity and imitation of delicate and rich women, while the man is required to be rough and strong. Likewise, he forbade both men and women from eating and drinking in gold and silver vessels and platters. The wisdom behind that, as he (may Allah's peace and blessings be upon him) stated, is that eating from them in this world is for the disbelievers, who have rushed their luxuries in their worldly life and enjoyed them therein. As for Muslims, they will enjoy all that exclusively in the afterlife, if they avoid it in this life out of fear of Allah, the Exalted, and out of yearning for what is with Him. So, it was forbidden in order to prevent imitating the disbelievers and to obey the commands of Allah, the Exalted. Similarly, any man who wears silk in this world has indeed hastened his enjoyment; that is why he will not wear it in the Hereafter. Whoever hastens something before its due time via forbidden means will be punished by being deprived of it, and, verily, Allah is severe in punishment.
