Assalamu alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh my brothers and sisters, remember something when the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has taught us something, he really has given us a great gift. these teachings when we fulfill them, we achieve a great reward. Today I want to speak about perfume. The profits are seldom loved his perfume, and he enjoyed the scent of misc and Amber and a few other of these beautiful perfumes, and he spoke about them so panela In fact, so much so that I shadowed a lot more on her and a few of the other companions of the profits are seldom they speak about even NSF in Monaco the Allahu anhu who served the profits or settlement, they speak about

00:00:43--> 00:01:34

something amazing. The scent of his perspiration sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, they say that warmer Shama to up the Obama era to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, la mysskin, wala amberton etc etc. So the Hadith is such that he is saying and as a bit monocle of the lava and I have never smelled any scent, neither amber no misc, no mosque, that is sweeter in smell in smell, then this the perspiration of the process Allah Subhana Allah. So that is an amazing miracle of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. However, when it comes to us, please apply a perfume that is not going to disturb people. Sometimes we apply perfume that smells like mango pickle. And you know,

00:01:34--> 00:02:17

people around us I have had times when I get a headache, I've gone to the masjid or somewhere and you pass someone and you're wondering, is it a smell of what is it off? You know, if I am told not to go to the masjid with the scent of garlic and onion, then what about that have a terrible perfume of today where it's literally stinking? May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us an understanding, we must make sure that the scent is good. It is beautiful. It is not so overpowering that people get headaches. Not everyone is on your level. When I was a little bit younger, I used to apply perfume for a lot of people. And sometimes some uncles would say, Please don't apply for me I get a

00:02:17--> 00:02:45

headache. And I used to like but this is a sooner you know, you're not allowed to refuse it until I learned you are allowed to refuse it if you have a reason to refuse it. You get headaches, you know you become sick, you might be allergic to it, the smell is terrible, and so on. Until I grew a little bit older and I had to start refusing some of these cents. And right now I've only used very little at times, especially when I'm going to the masjid. Yeah, Bernie danmaku Xena takamori

00:02:47--> 00:03:29

msgid are children of Adam Oh humankind. You need to make sure that you have adorned yourself with the beauty when you're going to the masjid. I'm going to the house of Allah for the sake of Allah I'm good to dress smart, speak and span smelling good. Making sure I'm looking good. Why I'm going to meet my maker I'm so excited when I when I dress in order to get to the masjid. I must be feeling I'm going to meet with Allah subhanho wa Taala so I smell good. Make sure you don't harm people in the masjid in the house of Allah. Make sure you're looking good you dress well. I see people go for Salah to federal Subhana Allah in their PJs, okay, it may not be prohibited but you can do better.

00:03:30--> 00:04:10

You can do much better. Go into the house of Allah, put on something and tell yourself I'm putting this on because I'm fulfilling Salah in front of Allah. I'm putting this on because I love Allah so much. When I am engaging in the most important act of worship that he has prescribed upon me, I'm going to be wearing that which is beautiful. Some of my good clothing or even best clothing some Han Allah, that's a connection with Allah. So, perfumes are good Mashallah, be careful. When you are applying a perfume, make sure it is something that is good, it's not going to give others a headache. And at the same time, we need to ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to protect us.

00:04:11--> 00:04:50

Usually a beautiful smell of Musk is amazing that the smell of food and the smell of amber and a few of these original smells are really great for as long as you don't have this overpowering smell that actually makes some people unwell just by them smelling and when you're giving people you need to ask them Would you like some This is what it is? Or would you like some it's a good one. It's very light centered. Would you like some? And they might say okay, some people have a skin problem. They might refuse it. It's not like they're against the sooner at all. Don't get upset. They are refusing perhaps find an excuse for them. Maybe they have a skin problem. You can tell them May Allah grant

00:04:50--> 00:04:59

you ease because that would include Shiva and cure. It would include all other matters that that person might be facing. May Allah grant us will ease so here goes

00:05:00--> 00:05:29

May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us the best of sense, and may we also be from among those who love a beautiful smell. Remember the miracle was only for the prophets of Salaam please don't collect your perspiration in the bottle and think for a moment that you know what? Wow I'm going to try selling this stuff. Stuff. stuff. May Allah forgive us barakallahu echo My beloved brothers and sisters aku Kohli hada was Allahu wa salam ala nabina Muhammad wa salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
