DAY 16: THE MESSENGER OF ALLAH ﷺ USING (ITR) PERFUME
The Messenger of Allah ﷺ was fond of good fragrances and encouraged everyone to remain in a state of good hygiene. He ﷺ advised us to maintain cleanliness and ensure that we smelt pleasant. The Prophet ﷺ never refused perfume, milk and cushions as gifts. [Jami At-Tirmidhi, Vol. 5, Book 41, Hadith 2790]
He ﷺ is reported to have said that the perfume of men is that scent which is apparent and the colour of which is hidden while the perfume of women differs with the colour being apparent and the scent being hidden. [Sunan al-Tirmidhī 2787, Grade: Sahih (Al-Albani)]
May Allah ﷻ grant us the wisdom to follow all the noble teachings of our Prophet ﷺ.
