The Prophet Muhammad’s Favorite Perfume (Pbuh)

Perfume is known to be one of the most powerful gifts one can give. In fact, a good scent is always a favorable kind of gift for everyone.

Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) used to love cleanliness and good scent. It was highlighted, in many hadiths, his love of fragrance and good scent like musk and ambergris. If perfume is gifted to him, he would never refuse it.

Anas said that:

The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) would not refuse perfume. (Al-Bukhari)

The Favorite Scent – Ambergris and Musk

Prophet Muhammad used to love musk and ambergris scents. He said in a hadith:

The best scent is the perfume of musk. (At-Tirmidhi)

It was narrated that Muhammad ibn ‘Ali said:

“I asked ‘Aisha:

‘Did the Messenger of Allah wear perfume?’

She said:

‘Yes, the perfumes used by men: Musk and amber.'”

Abu Hurayrah reports that the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said:

He who is presented with a flower of sweet basil should not reject it, because it is light in weight and pleasant in odor. (Muslim)

Anas reported:

“I never smelt ambergris or musk as fragrant as the fragrance of the body of Allah’s Messenger and I never touched brocade or silk and found it as soft as the body of Allah’s Messenger.” (Muslim)
Prophet Muhammad used to apply fragrance whenever he goes to pray especially in Friday prayer and advised his companions to do so.

“Anyone who takes a bath on Friday and cleans himself as much as he can and puts oil (on his hair) or scents himself; and then proceeds for the prayer and does not force his way between two persons (assembled in the mosque for the Friday prayer), and prays as much as is written for him and remains quiet when the Imam delivers the Khutba, all his sins in between the present and the last Friday will be forgiven.” (Al-Bukhari)

‘Aisha (may Allah be pleased with her) states:

‘I would put a lot of fragrance on the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) to the extent that you could see the shine on his blessed forehead and blessed beard.’

Fragrance for Men & Women

Prophet Muhammad distinguishes perfumes for men from ones for women when he said:

The perfume for men is that whose odor is apparent but whose color is hidden and the perfume for the women is those whose color is apparent but whose odor is hidden.

To avoid attraction to men, a woman should not wear any scent outside her home, but she is free and highly encouraged to beautify herself and apply perfume to please her husband at her home.

In the name of Allah, most compassionate and most merciful. “From among the signs of the Hour (end of time) are that religious knowledge will be taken away (by the death of religious scholars), ignorance will prevail, drinking of alcoholic drinks, and there will be a prevalence of Zina.” – Prophet (saw) We begin our topic with these words of our beloved Prophet. How true were his words? We live in a world where all these things are prevalent and unfortunately in our Muslim community as well. Many of our Muslim brothers and sisters are trapped in the evil of Zina and it has become a norm for them, as a result they don’t even consider it haram and unlawful. Allah says in holy Quran: Sūrah al-Isrā’, 17:32: “And do not even approach zina, for it is an outrageous act, and an evil way…’’ We are not going into detail about why Zina is unlawful but in this article, you will find the consequences of this sin. How this affects a life of a person physically, mentally, spiritually and so


It’s a sad day for all those who knew Ali Banat, the young man gifted with cancer. Ali Banat was an inspiring Australian Muslim philanthropist whose diagnosis of cancer motivated him to dedicate his life to charity work. “At this point in my life, Alhamdulillah I have been gifted by Allah with cancer throughout my body and I have changed my whole life to helping people,” he said. An Inspiration to Muslim Youth A man of a kind heart was known for his charity work over the past three years. One of his biggest achievements is MATW project, (Muslims Around The World) launched in October 2015 to assist those less fortunate in the poverty-stricken areas of Togo, Africa. He was an inspiration to Muslim youth, dedicating his big fortune to charity work. His organization built mosques and schools for the less fortunate in Africa. May Allah accept it from him! Indeed, to Allah we belong and to Him we shall return. May Allah have mercy on our brother Ali Banat and make it easy


Ali Banat is a sydney born who was diagnosed with Cancer and doctors have given him only 7 months to live. Despite his circumstances, he considers this a gift from Allah. Ali Banat, is a young man who, in his own words, was “gifted” with a stage 4 cancer throughout his body. He was given just a few months to live but took this great test as an opportunity to change his life. Upon receiving this news he immediately sold his business, gave up his lavish lifestyle and prized possessions and began a new mission to give up his Dunya and work for his Akhira. Ali has humbly dedicated the remainder of his life to helping those who are far less fortunate than him and in doing so, set up the charity MATW Project (Muslims Around The World) which has already changed the lives of so many. Being diagnosed with cancer is like death sentence for many. But this is not the way Australian Muslim Ali Ali Banat sees it. For him, the sickness is unquestionably a gift from Allah. “At this point in m
