Hadith guidelines on tooth-picking

Islam lays unparalleled emphasis on oral hygiene.
The emphasis on brushing the teeth with the miswak is just one example.

The Sunnah of Picking the Teeth
Another form of oral hygiene – in Islam- is the encouragement to pick the teeth after meals.

Sayyiduna Abu Ayyub (radiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Rasulullah ﷺ said:
‘How good is [the practice of] those in my Ummah, who wash between the fingers and toes in wudu [i.e. by doing khilal] and those who pick their teeth.’
(Ibn Abi Shaybah & Musnad Ahmad)

Tooth-picking
In the above and other Hadiths, we are taught to pick the teeth after meals. In addition to causing decay, leaving food unpicked from the teeth also creates an odour which offends others.
(Faydul Qadir)

The teeth are usually picked:
1⃣ with the tongue,
2⃣ with a finger,
3⃣ with an object like the toothpick/dental floss/waterpik etc

However, we are advised to not swallow the food particles that are picked with fingers, toothpicks or other foreign objects.

✅ Sayyiduna Abu Hurayrah (radiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Rasulullah ﷺ said:
‘… Whoever eats and removes the [left over] food from between his teeth with his finger [or any foreign object, like a toothpick] should spit it out. What he removes [from the teeth] with his tongue, he may swallow. Whoever abides by this does well, and who does not, will not be sinful.
(Sunan Abi Dawud)

One reason for spitting what is removed with a foreign object is due to the possibility of it having blood on it. [The consumption of blood is unlawful].
(Badhul Majhud, vol. 1 pg. 23)

The above should be done with the intention of following the noble teaching of our Beloved Nabi ﷺ

Every sunnah is filled with immense barakah and benefits.

A clean heart goes to Jannah 💙

📌Sayyiduna Anas (radiyallahu ‘anhu) says:
“We were sitting with Nabi ﷺ when he said: “A man who is from the inmates of Jannah is about to arrive.”
Soon thereafter, a Sahabi came in, with his shoes in his left hand & the water of wudu dripping from his beard. When the gathering ended, Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah ibn ‘Amr ibn ‘As (radiyallahu ‘anhuma) followed this person [with the motive of learning the reason for him being blessed with such a glad tiding]

He said to him: “I have taken an oath that I will not go home for 3⃣ days. Is it possible for you to accommodate me for this time?” The Sahabi agreed. Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah ibn ‘Amr stayed with him for 3⃣ days, but noticed nothing extraordinary in his routine. i.e, he never engaged in additional voluntary deeds as expected.

🔎 However, whenever this Sahabi (radiyallahu ‘anhu) would go to bed at night, he would recite some form of dhikr, then sleep till fajr. Furthermore, during these 3⃣ days he did not hear him utter any word besides good.

👉🏽 Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah ibn ‘Amr (radiyallahu ‘anhuma) says: ‘After 3⃣ nights I almost deemed his deeds as ‘nothing so special’. I approached him and explained that my real motive for staying with him was to discover the special act that he may be engaging in, which warranted his guarantee of Jannah.’ Then I asked him: ‘How did You achieve such a rank?’ He said: ‘I have no special deeds beside whatever You have seen during your stay.’ I accepted this and was about to leave when he exclaimed: ‘O, Yes! there is something.
I do not harbor any evil or malice in my heart against any fellow Muslim. I am not jealous over whatever good Allah bestows upon any of them.’ Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah ibn ‘Amr (radiyallahu ‘anhuma) said:
👌🏽 ‘That is precisely the reason for you reaching such a lofty status. 👌🏽
(Musnad Ahmad & Nasai. Also see: Tafsir Ibn Kathir, Surah: 59, Ayah: 9)

🕋 Let’s earn our Place in Jannah too by emptying our hearts of ill-feelings/malice/jealousy etc towards others.
Failure to do so is more harmful to ourselves, instead of anyone else…‼

Repeat Broadcast

There are many rewarding deeds whose merits are inflated based on the occasion in which they are carried out.

One such deed is:

Walking for the salah of Jumu’ah. 🕌

Sayyiduna Aws Ibn Aws (radiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Rasulullah ﷺ said:

Whoever (does the following on a Friday):

1⃣ Takes a thorough bath,
2⃣ Goes very early to the Masjid,
3⃣ Goes walking, not riding,
4⃣ Sits close to the imam (not against the back wall)
5⃣ Listens attentively to the khutbah (sermon)
6⃣ Does not engage in futile activity (like, talking to someone or fidgeting with his hair, clothes or cellphone etc)

Will receive for every step:

The reward for one year’s fast and one year’s Tahajjud Salaah!

(Sunan Abi Dawud & Tirmidhi, classified as Sahih by Imams: Ibn Khuzaimah, Ibn Hibban and Hakim)

There’s Nothing Better

One cannot imagine the amount of reward achievable for this weekly deed. 👌🏼

No wonder according to some experts, there is no other Sahih (authentic) Hadith with greater virtue than this one!

May Allah Ta’ala grant us all the ability to take advantage of this opportunity. Amin.

Leaving for the Masjid in the state of Wudu 🚰🏘🕌

There are several incentives for one who does wudu at his residence before leaving for the masjid.
Hereunder are some of those benefits:

1⃣ Sayyiduna Abu Hurayrah (radiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Rasulullah ﷺ said:
‘When one performs wudu at home and leaves for the masjid solely to offer salah [in congregation], for every step taken towards the masjid [in this state of wudu] one sin is forgiven, one reward accrued and one stage is elevated in the Hereafter.’
(Sahih Bukhari & Sahih Muslim)

2⃣ Sayyiduna Abu Umamah (radiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Rasulullah ﷺ said:
‘One who performs wudu at home then proceeds to the masjid for fard salah secures the reward of a Haji in the state of ihram.’
(Sunan Abi Dawud)

🕌 Doing wudu at home before proceeding to the masjid is a recommended practice. Besides the above, it holds other spiritual benefits as well. 🕋

Let’s try and inculcate this noble practice in our daily routine. 🚰

It will also be a source of blessings coming into our homes, insha Allah.

Recital after Jumu’ah for protection

🕋 After the Fard of Jumu’ah Salah, in addition to the normal recitals for after every fard salah, one may add the following:

Sayyidatuna ‘Aishah (radiyallahu’anha) reports that Rasulullah ﷺ said:

‘Whoever recites the following surahs 7 times, before talking to anyone after the Jumu’ah salah, will be protected till the following Jumu’ah:

✅Surah Ihklas,
✅Surah Falaq
✅Surah Nas

(‘Amalul yawmi wal laylah of Ibnus Sunni, Hadith: 375. Also see: Al-Adhkar, Hadith: 520 & Al-Futuhatur Rabbaniyyah, 4/232-233)

👌🏽This is suitable for practice and is well supported by similar reports from other Sahabah and Tabi’un (radiyallahu’anhum)

👉🏼 Note 1: Some narrations add Surah Fatihah at the beginning.

👉🏼 Note 2: ‘Protection’ in this Hadith refers to protection of one’s wealth, family as well as one’s worldly and religious affairs.

In an era of uncertainty like our’s, this recital is very pertinent, and should not be ignored…

Recommended times for using the Miswak 🌴

👌🏽 Perhaps the most encapsulating Hadith on the importance of brushing the teeth with a Miswak is the narration of Sayyiduna Abu Umamah (radiyallahu’anhu) wherein Rasulullah ﷺ says:

’Use the Miswak, for it is a means of cleansing the mouth and attaining the pleasure of Allah. Every time Jibril (‘alayhi salam) came to me he advised me to use the Miswak, to an extent that I feared it may become obligatory for me and my ummah to use it. If it wasn’t for the fear of creating difficulty upon my followers, I would have made it binding on them. Indeed I use the Miswak so much that I fear for my gums.’

(Ibn Majah, Hadith:289, see Targheeb 1/166)

The Scholars have enumerated up to 🔟 different moments in which we are encouraged to use the Miswak:

1⃣ Upon awakening
2⃣ While making wudhu
3⃣ Before offering salah (provided the gums don’t bleed)
4⃣ Before reciting the Holy Quran
5⃣ Before meeting with people
6⃣ Upon entering the home
7⃣ When one is hungry
8⃣ When the teeth become yellow
9⃣ When the mouth has a bad odour
🔟 Before death (if one can sense it)

This displays the emphasis Islam lays on Dental care. 💎

👍🏼 Let’s make all of the above part of our routine.

💎 A Beautiful Hadith on Salam🤝

Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah Ibn Mas’ud (radiyallahu’anhu) reports that Nabi ﷺ said:

‘As-Salam is one of the names of Allah ﷻ‎ that has been placed on Earth. So, spread it amongst yourselves!
For indeed when a Muslim passes by a group of people and greets them [first] with Salam and they reply to him, he will supersede their rank by virtue of merely reminding them of the Salam.
If they do not reply to him, then those [Angels] who are better and more purer will have replied!’
(Musnad Bazzar and Tabarani with a reliable chain)

Let’s take advantage of this beautiful benefit of saying Salam first, while also being aware that if we do not receive a reply, it’s the Angels who will indeed do so insha Allah.

The Angel’s reply to our sneeze! 🗣

🎯 The following is recorded from Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah Ibn ‘Abbas (radiyallahu’anhuma) with a reliable chain:
‘When one sneezes, [even if he is alone] he should still say: Alhamdulillahi Rabbil ‘Alamin.
When he does so, the Angels reply to him saying: Yarhamukallah.’
(May Allah have mercy on you)

📌 The renowned Tabi’i, Ibrahim Nakha’i (rahimahullah) said:
‘Therefore, after saying Alhamdulillah… one who is alone [or one who does not receive a reply from those present] should say:
Yarhamunallahu wa iyyakum.’
(May Allah Ta’ala have mercy on you and I)

As a reply to the Angels and other creation. 👌🏽

📚 Refer: Al-Adabul Mufrad of Imam Bukhari, 946, Ibn Abi Shaybah, 26517 & Fathul Bari, 6221)

May Allah Ta’ala grant us the tawfiq (ability) to practice on the above, and to be aware of the presence of the Angels.

👌🏽 Reciting Hadiths of Sahih Bukhari for removal of difficulty

It is a famous statement among the Muhaddithun:
‘When reciting Hadith, Allah’s ﷻ‎ special mercies descend.’
(Tadribur Rawi, 4/540)

During times of difficulty, fear and hardship, in addition to Quran recital and other forms of du’a etc, one practice of our pious predecessors; recent and ancient is to recite the entire Sahih Bukhari in order to draw Allah’s ﷻ‎ special mercy.

Sahih Bukhari consists of among the most authentic Hadiths of Rasulullah ﷺ ever gathered.
Through the blessings (barakah) of reciting these noble Hadiths, Allah ﷻ‎ removes adversity. This is a well tried and tested practice & is based on centuries of experience.
✅ It was the habit of our Akabir and our pious predecessors (rahimahumullah) to engage in a recital of the entire Bukhari Shareef in times of difficulty and strife.
💎 Several Muhaddithun have mentioned the effect of this deed in removing harm, illlness and calamity including drought.
This is a tried and tested practice over centuries.

Many Muhaddithun of the past too have mentioned their experience in the effect of this method of supplication.

📚 See 10 quotations from the senior Hadith masters here:

Reciting Hadiths of Sahih Bukhari to repel calamity

🕋 Currently the Ummah of Nabi ﷺ is undergoing untold challenges.
📌From Syria to Yemen to Iraq, Afghanistan, Somalia, Myanmar (Burma) and Sri Lanka- to name a few.

💡 In light of the above, reliable, qualified ‘Ulama should be approached with a request of reviving this practice.
People should support such initiatives and facilitate these recitals of the ’most authentic book authored by man’.
In so doing we would attract additional mercy of Allah ﷻ‎.
May Allah ﷻ‎ remove the sufferings of Muslims throughout the globe soon, very soon.

Note: Such recitals should only be conducted by ‘Ulama who are qualified to do so.
The general masses may attend the completion and du’a for its blessings.

THE MODESTY OF SAYYIDUNA ‘UTHMAN (RADIYALLAHU ‘ANHU) 👌🏽

Question🔍

Is the following narration authentic?

💎 Rasulullah ﷺ was reclining in his house while his legs were uncovered. Sayyiduna Abu Bakr (radiyallahu ‘anhu) sought permission to enter, so he permitted him to enter and he spoke to him. Then Sayyiduna ‘Umar (radiyallahu ‘anhu) sought permission to enter, so he was permitted likewise, and he spoke to him as well while he continued to recline. Then Sayyiduna ‘Uthman came and sought permission to enter, so Nabi ﷺ sat up and straightened his garments. Sayyiduna ‘Uthman was then permitted to enter and he spoke to him.

When he left, Sayyidah ‘Aaishah (radiyallahu ‘anha) said to Nabi ﷺ : ‘Abu Bakr came and you did not move, ‘Umar came and you did not move, but when ‘Uthman came you sat up and straightened your garments?’
Nabi ﷺ said: “Should I not feel shy before a man whom the Angels feel shy for ?“ 👌🏽

Answer🔍

✅Imam Muslim (rahimahullah) has recorded this narration in his Sahih. The narration is therefore authentic.
(Sahih Muslim, #2401)

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.

What to do on Auspicious Nights?

Our Beloved Nabi ﷺ has mentioned:
“Indeed your Rabb has reserved certain special moments in time (in which he emits abundant/special mercy)
Be sure to avail yourselves for these opportunities.” (Majma’uz Zawaaid)

We are usually aware of the significant occasions that present themselves each year. The crucial thing is how do we “avail ourselves” and maximise our benefit from these blessed nights?
Here under is a suggested format for “What to do on Blessed nights?”

Practicing on the following 10 points won’t take more than an hour insha Allah.

  1. Offer the Maghrib, Esha & Fajr Salahs in congregation.
    – receive the reward of spending the entire night in ‘ibadah.
  2. Sleep in the state of wudhu.
    – your soul will make sajdah under the ‘Arsh (Throne) of Allah ﷻ‎.
  3. Abstain from sin.
  4. Clear your heart from ill-feelings towards fellow Muslims.
    – or else be deprived of Allah’s mercy.
  5. Salatut Tasbeeh.
    see next message.
  6. Tilawat (Recital) of Quran.
  7. Salawat on Rasulullah ﷺ
  8. Dhikr.

There are many forms of Dhikrullah. the following are suggested:
A hundred times “Laa ilaah illallah”
A hundred times repeating the name of “Allah”
And a hundred times:
“Subhaanallahi wabihamdihi subhanallahil ‘Azeem”

  1. Du’a.

“Du’a is the essence of Worship” and hence cannot be omitted when we engage in worship.
More so on occasions when Almighty Allah ﷻ‎ accepts duas such as on the night of Qadr. One should spend a lengthy duration in begging from Allah, as we are all in need of it.
In light of the current world crisis, do remember our oppressed brethren around the globe.

  1. Tawbah.

The procedure for Tawbah is:
a. Perform two rak’ahs of Salah. (Optional)
b. Stop the sin that one is repenting from.
c. Regret the sin from the bottom of your heart.
d. Make a determined pledge with Allah ﷻ‎ never to repeat that sin.Besides the two rak’aats of Salah,the remainder are all fundamental.

Furthermore, if the sin involved usurping the right of the next person, one needs to ask him/her for forgiveness too. Without this we are not guaranteed forgiveness.

If that person has passed away, we could make dua for him and repay the debt (if any) to his/her heirs.

Note 1: The above can all be achieved in about 1 hour only.
Salatut Tasbeeh: 20 mins
Tawbah: can be incorporated in the du’a
Zikr: 10 mins
Salawaat: 5 mins
Tilawat: 15 mins
Du’a & Tawbah: 10 mins

However if one is short on time for whatever reason, then the following 5 points are suggested:
a) Esha & Fajr with Jamat
b) Sleep with Wudhu
c) Abstain from sin
d) clean the heart
e) Du’a

Note 2: The night commences at Maghrib, not after Esha or after Taraweeh or at Sehri time. Therefore one can and should commence ‘ibadah from Maghrib, although it is indeed best to do so at the last part of the night.

Note 3: These are mere suggestions intended to make it easy for people. One may engage in whatever form of ‘ibadah one is comfortable with.
May Allah Ta’ala grant us all complete forgiveness and steadfastness on guidance. Ameen.

Please do remember the writer in your supplication as well.
