If the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did not like bad smells, then why is it that women are not allowed to wear perfume?
This is true the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam really did not like that smells, he would even avoid certain foods that would leave bad breath in his mouth. Why? Because he would say that I have to speak to the one that you don't speak with. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was very particular about cleaning his mouth with celiac, and also making sure that his body and his clothes were clean. I showed a lot more on her reports that on Friday, people would come from different far off places to perform Salatu Gomorrah, and when they would come Of course, they would be sweating and dust would also be covering them, and sometimes they would smell really bad. So the Prophet
sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told them very clearly that why don't you wash up for this day of yours. Meaning when you come for jawara make sure that your clothes in your body are clean. Now remember that when it comes to fragrance fragrance is a part of adornment? Allah subhanaw taala says in the Quran, instructing the women that well are you being a Xena tahuna that they should not reveal their Zina their adornment. So adornment is not just in the form of nice hair and makeup and nice clothes, but it also comes in the form of fragrance. So it doesn't mean that a woman is not allowed to wear fragrance at all. What is prohibited is that a woman wears fragrance that spreads that lingers on
even as she has moved away. So wearing a fragrance that is light that is very mild, that does not spread, this is something permissible. However, if the clothes or if the body are not clean, and a woman sprays her clothes with lots of perfume, then this is really not a good idea. Because first of all, you're going to end up using a lot of that perfume. And secondly, that perfume is really not going to cover up that bad smell in order to deal with that bad smell. First of all, make sure that your body is clean. Take regular showers shower every day, in fact, secondly, make sure that your clothes are also clean. So change your clothes daily. And this means all the layers including your
hijab, and your Avaya and your cardigan or whatever it is that you're wearing all of your layers, make sure that you're wearing fresh clothes. And then of course, make sure that you watch your diet also because there are certain foods like garlic and onion heavy foods that also lead to a lot of body odor. So in order to deal with these things, take the necessary action. Use fragrance that is mild. But before that fragrance, make sure that your clothes and body are actually clean. alasa panel data says in the Quran that in the market or city use law indeed with difficulty there is ease. A lot of times women they end up sweating a lot because of the layers of clothes that they're
wearing. But there is also ease Allah subhanaw taala has not made extreme difficulty in our religion, water is available clothing is available and we should make use of these blessings that Allah subhanaw taala has given us because remember that a believer is such that from them, others are safe, so we should not harm others with our bad smell. So take the necessary actions clean your body, clean your clothes, and in sha Allah things.
