Assalaam Alaikum wa rahmatullah,

Covering one's 'Awrah is obligatory according to a consensus of the Muslims. The woman's body is all 'Awrah, and there is a consensus that the buttocks and private parts of a man are his 'Awrah as well. But the correct scholarly opinion is that the 'Awrah for man is everything between his knee and navel.

It is reported that Muhammad bin Jahsh said that once, the Messenger of Allah (sallAllahu alayhi wa sallam) passed by Ma'mar, whose thighs were uncovered. The Prophet (sallAllahualayhi wa sallam) said, "O Ma'mar, cover your thighs, for the thighs are 'Awrah." (Ahmad 5/290, Mustadrak of Al-Hakim 4/180 no. 7361 and Al-Bukhari no. 371)

Recorded by Ahmad in his Musnad, Al-Bukhari in disconnected form, and Al-Hakim in his Mustadrak It is also reported from Ibn 'Abbas, may Allaah be pleased with them, that the Prophet (sallAllaahu `alayhi wa sallam)said,

"The thigh is 'Awrah." (At-Tirmithi no. 2797 and Ahmad 1/275)

Recorded by At-Tirmizi and Ahmad with the wording:

"Allaah's Messenger (sallAllaahu `alayhi wa sallam) passed by a man whose thigh was exposed so he said:

"Cover your thigh, for a man's thigh is 'Awrah." (Ahmad 5/290 and Mustadrak of AJ-Hakim no. 4/180 no. 7361)

It was also reported from Jarhad Al-Aslami that he said, "Allaah's Messenger (sallAllahu alayhi wa sallam) passed by me while I was wearing a Burdah and my thigh was exposed. He (sallAllahualayhi wa sallam) said:

"Cover your thighs, for the thigh is 'Awrah." (At-Tirmithi no. 2798 and Ahmad no. 3/478)

Recorded by Malik in Al-Muwatta, Ahmad, Abu Dawud, and At-Tirmizi, who said it was Hasan.

These Hadeeths strengthen each other, so that they are raised to the level of being valid proofs.

May Allah Subhana wa ta’ala, send His blessings upon our Prophet Muhammad salaAllahu `alayhi wa sallam, on his family, and on his Companions. Ameen.
