Introduction










Indeed all praise for Allah, We praise Him as He deserves to be
praised, and we seek His Aid. Whoever Allah Guides, he cannot
go astray. And whoever He leads astray, who can guide him. And
I bear witness that there is no Deity worthy of Worship in Truth
except Allah and I bear witness that Muhammad is the slave and
Messenger of Allah.
And thereafter:

For Indeed the best of narration is the Book of Allah, and the
best of guidance is the guidance of Muhammad, and the worst of
affairs are the newly invented matters, and every innovation is
misguidance.
It is a great Blessing that Allah has blessed this Nation of
Muhammad with the best of guidance in all of their affairs,
whether it is in how to worship their Lord the Creator, The
Fashioner and The Giver of Sustenance, The King of all Kings, or
in how to deal in the manner that is best suiting to the humanity,
whether they are your foes or your companions from amongst
the whole Creation.

Indeed Islaam has not left a stone unturned in matters that will
bring us benefit or harm in this world and the Hereafter. To the
point that (Translation):
He left his ummah (nation) on a pure and clear path, whose
night is like its day and none deviates from it except one who is
destroyed. He explained (in this clear path) everything which the
ummah is in need of in all of its affairs (to such an extent) that
A man from among the mushrikoon (pagans) said to Salmaan alFarsee (Translation):
"Your Messenger teaches you (so much), even toilet manners."
So Salmaan replied (Translation): "Yes! He has also forbidden us
to face the qiblah (direction of prayer) while passing urine or
excrement or that we clean ourselves with less than three
stones, or that we clean ourselves with the right hand or that we
clean ourselves with dung or bones."
[Narrated in Sunan Abu Dawud / Hadeeth 7 and also in Saheeh
Muslim / Hadeeth - 262]

This treatise The significance of Perfume in Islam and to The Humanity in


General & The Prophet Muhammad and His Connection to Perfumes is a
reality of the fact that even thou perfume is a thing, that is an
extension of our attire, but we see how Islaam has guided us and
shown its significance in our lives, whether we are alive in this
world or we dwell in Paradise (may Allah make us from amongst
them) or we are in a state of wakefulness or in a state of sleep.
And all of this was demonstrated to us in the manners of our
beloved Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him), who was
sent as a mercy to the creation and not as a punisher.

Allah, The Ever-Merciful says in the Mighty Quraan (Translation):

And We have not sent you (O Muhammad), except as a Mercy


to the worlds

[Quraan /Surah Al-Anbiyah 21 / Verse 107]

Indeed Islaam is a source that connects our souls, minds and


body to the One that deserves to be Honoured, and Obeyed in all
spheres of our life. You will come to realise, God Willing that it is
a blessing, Allah has given us the sense of smell and taste, by
which we can detect what is good and harmful for us, and what
is desired and undesired, and what is liked and what is disliked.
How many sold their souls for her, because of her delightful
aroma
How many were turned on their heels because of her elegant
perfume aroma
How many performed deeds, only by knowing the Greatness of
her adorable Aroma
And how many souls grieve after coming to know that her
Fragrance was only a deceiving plot, by which she seduced him
And how many find delight in her because of the Aroma within
her
For indeed looks, smells and tastes are deceiving to the soul that
is dead

Dont blame me, for my seduction, you were beguiled by my


beauty and charm, you followed my trail of Aroma, by which you
gained your destination
So Praise Allah if you attained the Bliss and blame no one except
yourself, if you have not reached the Bliss
Keep on trying, for there is still today but dont know if tomorrow
will come, yesterday is gone never to return
How amazing is today, from the amazing of affairs, that we have
come to love and like those things that are the opposite to
reality. And we seek refuge with Allaah alone from the evil of our
souls and the evil of our actions. For we live in a time where the
Truth has become falsehood and falsehood has become the
truth. Where the one eyed man is the king in the land of the
blind. Where the general people cannot distinguish the right
from wrong and following of the caprice is in abundance, to the
point, a time will come, when people will have illegal sexual
intercourse like animals. There will be women dressed but in
reality they are naked, to the point that you can describe every
intricate parts of her body, they are seduced and seducing
others.
So beware! O men and women, for no nation is afflicted with
calamity for no other reason than the spread of illegal sexual
intercourse, which violates the rights and honour of other
mothers and fathers in regards to their children.
How I had high aspiration for you, but I forgot that there is always
a wolf in opposition to you, if you are not seduced by him, then he
will take the form of scorpions, waiting in anticipation that you
may fall in to his traps, all the while I was looking over the snake

So that been said I hope and ask Allaah alone, The Lord of all
Bounties that He makes this treatise for seeking His Pleasure
alone and that He brings benefit to the one who reads it and
spreads it and to remove the covering of the one that may look
for defects, so as to find guidance. O Allaah! How many have
been guided by your light, while they were trying to put out Your
light, Indeed You are Best of those Who give guidance and
knows Best whom to Guide and whom to mislead and none is
misled except that he went in opposition to You O Allaah.
Written by Abu Dawud Juned Ibn Abdul Dhahir, the one in need
of the Mercy of His Lord, The King of all Kings, The One, The
Mighty, The Irresistible, The Al-Conquering, Allaah! And our end
call is, All Praise is for Allaah, The Lord of the Worlds.

The Significance of Perfume in Islaam and To the
Humanity in General

Narrated from Jaabir (Translation), that the Messenger of Allaah


forbade that one should eat onion and garlic,
but when we were overtaken by the like to eat them, we eat
from them. He said, Whoever eat from this
tree of foul smelling, he should not come near to our masjid
(mosque), for Indeed the Angels are hurt by that which hurts
the Human.
[Narrated in Saheeh Muslim / Hadeeth - 3008]

We went on till we came to Jabir Ibn Abdillaah in the Masjid


(Mosque) and he was busy in observing prayer in a single
garment which he had joined its two ends. I made my way
through the people till I sat between him and the Qiblah and I
said (Translation):
May Allaah have Mercy on you. Do you observe prayer in one
single garment on your body whereas your mantle is lying at your
side? He pointed with his hand towards my chest just like this and
he separated his fingers and bent them in the shape of a bow, and
he said: I thought that a fool like you should come to me so that
he should see me as I do and he should then do like it.
(Muhammad) The Messenger of Allaah came to
us in this very Masjid and he had in his hand the twig of the palmtree and he saw sputum towards the Qiblah (direction in which the
Muslims prays towards Mecca) of the Masjid and he erased it with

the help of the twig. He then came to us and said: Who amongst
you likes that Allaah should turn His Face away from him? We were
afraid. He then said it again: Who amongst you like that Allaah
should turn His Face away from him? We were afraid. He said it
again: Who amongst you like that Allaah should turn His Face
away from him? We said: None of us would like that O Messenger
of Allaah. He said: If one from amongst you stands for prayer,
then know that Allaah the Blessed and Exalted is facing him, so let
him not spit in front of him, nor to his right, but he should spit on
his left side beneath his foot and if he is impelled to do so all of a
sudden in spite of himself, he should then spit in his clothes and
fold it in some part of it. Then he said: Bring me some fragrance
a young man who belonged to our family stood up, went and
brought perfume oil in his palm, which the Messenger of Allaah
took and applied it to the end of that twig and then touched the
place where there had been sputum.
Jabir said (Translation): This is the etiquettes of the Masajid
(Mosques)
[Narrated in Saheeh Muslim / Hadeeth - 3008]

Ahyishah narrated (Translation), I heard (Muhammad)


Messenger of Allaah saying:
The (system) of night and day would not end until the people
have taken to the worship of Lat and Uzza. I said O Messenger
of Allaah, Didnt Allaah reveal:
He it is Who has sent His Messenger with the Right Guidance,
and the True Religion, so that He may cause it to prevail over all
other religions, through the polytheists are averse to it
[Surah Tawbah 9 /Verse 33]

That it implies this promise is going to be fulfilled. Thereupon he


said, Indeed it would come out to be like that, as Allaah wills.
Thereafter Allah would send a sweet smelling fragrant wind by
which everyone who has even a mustard grain of faith in Him
would die and those will be left who has no goodness in them,
they would revert to the religion of their forefathers.
[Narrated in Saheeh Muslim / Hadeeth - 2907]

It is narrated by An-Nawwas Ibn Saman in a long Hadeeth about


the Ad-Dajjal (Anti-Christ) and the Descending of Isa (Jesus) son
of Maryam (Mary) , that Muhammad the Messenger of Allaah
said (Translation):
Allah would send a pleasant fragrant aroma wind which
would soothe the people even from under their armpit, and
would take the soul of every Believer (meaning those with strong
faith) and Muslim (meaning who has submitted to the Will of
Allaah but not yet as strong as the Believer). And there would
remain on the earth evil people, and they would commit adultery
and fornication like animals, then the Hour (End of the world) will
come up on them.
[Narrated in Saheeh Muslim / Hadeeth - 2937]

Abu Saeed narrated that Ibn Sayyad asked the Prophet


(Muhammad) What about the earth of
Paradise? He replied (Translation):
It is of fine clear white Musk that is special
[Narrated in Saheeh Muslim / Hadeeth - 2928 /93]

The significance of Perfume in Islam and to The Humanity

| 13

Narrated from Anas Ibn Malik, that (Muhammad) Messenger of


Allaah said (Translation):
Indeed In Paradise there is a market, you will come there every
Jumuah (Friday Congregation), there will be sent a northern wind,
which you will like the fragrant smell of it, which will scatter on
your faces and your clothing and that will increase you in beauty
and charm, and then they will return to their family, after having
increased in beauty and charm, and their family would say: By
Allah! You have increased in beauty and charm after leaving us,
and they would say: By Allaah! You have also increased in beauty
and charm after weve left you.
[Narrated in Saheeh Muslim / Hadeeth - 2833]

Hammam Ibn Munabbih said, this is what are the Hadeeth


(narrations) Abu Hurayrah narrated from (Muhammad) the
Messenger Of Allaah he narrated this Hadeeth
from amongst them, that the Messenger of Allaah

said (Translation):
The first group to pass in to Paradise, their appearance would
be the appearance of the moon in its brightest nights. They
would neither spit nor suffer from catarrh, and nor will have the
need to go to the toilet. And their utensils and their combs will
be of gold and silver. And the fuel of their braziers will be of Aloes
and their sweat will be of Musk. And every one of you would have
two spouses, so beautiful that the marrow of their shanks would
be visible through their flesh. There would be no differences
amongst them and no enmity; their hearts would be like one
heart, glorifying Allaah morning and evening.
[Narrated In Saheeh Muslim / Hadeeth - 2834 /17]

In another narration is it reported from Abu Hurayrah that


(Muhammad) the Messenger of Allaah said
(Translation):
The first group to pass in to Paradise from my Nation, there
appearance would be like the moon in the brightest of nights.
Then after them to pass in to Paradise would be like the brightest
star in the sky that glitters, then thereafter to pass by would be
like this according to their ranks. They will neither have the need
to excrete nor pass urine, nor will they suffer from catarrh, nor
will they spit. Their combs would be made of gold, and their fuel
of their braziers will be of Aloes wood and their sweat will be of
Musk. Their form will be of the form of one man and their height
will be of their father Adam, sixty cubits.
[Narrated In Saheeh Muslim / Hadeeth - 2834 / 16]

Abu Hurayrah narrated that (Muhammad) the Messenger of


Allaah said (Translation):
Two types of people are from the dwellers of the Fire (Hell),
people possessing whips like the tail of the cow; with it they beat
the people. And those women that are dressed but in reality they
are naked (these are prophecy that have been fulfilled as you see
today, how some of the women dress, even thou they have
clothes on, you can see or describe to details the figure of their
body), they are seduced and seduce others, with their hair up high
like humps. They would not enter Paradise nor will they smell its
Fragrance, and indeed its Fragrances can be smelt or perceived
from the distance of such and such (meaning from very far).
[Narrated Saheeh Muslim / Hadeeth - 2857 / 52]

Abu Hurayrah narrated that Prophet (Muhammad)


said (Translation):
Whoever kills a person who has a pledge, who is a person that is
non-Muslim a protection from Allaah and His Messenger of safety,
will not smell, the Fragrance of Paradise, even thou the Fragrance
can be detected from the distance of seventy years.
[Narrated in Ibn Majah / Hadeeth 2687 Authenticated as
Hadeeth Saheeh by Imaam Muhammad Nasir-Uddin al-Albaani]

Abdullah Ibn Shaqiq narrated from Abu Hurayrah said


(Translation):
When the soul of the Believer is taken out of his body, it is
received by two Angels that take it up (to the heavens).
Hammad (one of the narrators) said (Translation): It leaves with
a sweet Fragrant, like the Fragrant of Musk.
He said (Translation): And the dwellers of the sky says, Soul that
is good has come from the direction of the earth, May Allaah
mention it with good and also the body that it resides in. And it is
taken to its Lord, The Exalted and The Majestic. Then it is said
(Translation),Take it to its end place of rest (the earth).
Then he said (Translation): And indeed if it is a disbelievers soul
that is taken Here Hammad said, it leaves with a foul smell and
with curse upon it The dweller of the sky says, Soul that is foul
has come from the direction of the earth. Then it is said, Take it
to its end place of rest.
Abu Hurayrah said (Translation), the Messenger of Allaah
put a cloth which was with him upon his nose while

making a mention of the soul of a non-believer (because of the


foul smell that will emanate from it).
[Narrated in Saheeh Muslim / Hadeeth - 2872 /75]

Anas narrated from (Muhammad) the Prophet of Allaah


having said (Translation):
A single endeavour (fighting) in Allaah Cause in the afternoon or
the forenoon is better than the whole of the world and whatever
is in it. A place in Paradise equal to the size of a whip is better than
the whole world and whatever is in it. And if a woman from
amongst the women of Paradise was to appear upon the earth,
she would fill the horizon with light from the beauty of her charm
and her beautiful Fragrant Aroma. And her head scarf (covering)
is better than the whole world and whatever is in it.
[Narrated in Saheeh al-Bukhaare / Hadeeth - 6568]

Abdullah Ibn Amr narrated that (Muhammad) the Prophet


said (Translation):
My Fountain is a months journey in distance, its water is whiter
then milk, and its smell is better than that of Misk, and its drinking
cups are as numerous as the stars in the sky, whoever drinks from
it, will not get thirsty ever again.
[Narrated in Saheeh al-Bukhaare / Hadeeth - 6579]

Anas Ibn Malik narrated that (Muhammad) the Prophet


said (Translation):
While I was walking in Paradise, I saw a river, upon the banks of
it there were tents made of hollow pearl. I said: What is this O
Jibreel (Angel Gabriel)? He said: This is The Kawthar (River in
Paradise for Prophet Muhammad), which your Lord has
bestowed upon you. Then know that its earth is of perfume, which
is of the best Musk.
[Narrated in Saheeh al-Bukhaare / Hadeeth - 6581]

Abi Hurayrah narrated from (Muhammad) the Prophet


that he said (Translation):
Every deeds that the son of Adam does is for himself except
Fasting (in Ramadhan), which is for Me and I shall compensate him
for it. The breath of the fasting person is more beloved to Allaah
then the smell of Musk.
[Narrated in Saheeh al-Bukhaare / Hadeeth - 5927]

Abi Hurayrah narrated from (Muhammad) the Messenger of


Allaah that he said (Translation):
By Allaah, my soul that is in His Hands! One of you is not wounded
in the Cause of Allaah, and Allaah knows best, who has been
wounded in His Cause, will come on the Day of Judgement, with
his wound the colour of blood, and the smell, will be the smell of
Musk.

Anas narrated that (Translation):


My uncle Anas Ibn an-Nadr was absent from the battle of Badr,
he said (Translation): O Messenger of Allaah! I was absent from
the first battle you fought against the pagans. Indeed if Allaah lets
me to witness another battle against the pagans, Allaah will see
how courageously I will fight. On the day of the battle of Uhud
when the Muslims turned their backs and fled, he said: O Allaah! I
apologize to you for what these have done (meaning his
companions), and I free myself from what these pagans have
done. Then he proceeded towards Sad Ibn Muadh, and said
(Translation), O Sad Ibn Muadh! Paradise by the Lord of an-Nadr,
Indeed I smell its Fragrance coming from ahead of Uhud (this is a
name of a mountain in Madina).
Sad said (Translation): O Messenger of Allaah! I cannot archive
what he has archived. Anas said; We found him with more than
eighty wounds made by swords, spears and arrows on his body,
he was dead and his body was mutilated amongst the bodies of
the pagans and none of us except his sister could recognize him
by his fingers. Anas said; we were sure and of no doubt, that
indeed this Verse was revealed concerning him and his likes
(Translation):
Among the Believers are men who have been true to their
covenant with Allaah to the end of the Verse.
[Surah Ahzab /Verse 23] [Narrated in Saheeh al-Bukhaare /
Hadeeth - 2805]

Did you know that there is sweetness to faith and anything that is
sweet the soul Finds delight in its sweetness like the taste of
oranges along with it nice Aroma, which if one has the following
three characteristics would taste its sweetness, as it is narrated by
Anas from the Prophet (Muhammad) that he said
(Translation):
Three, whoever has them in him, would taste the sweetness of
faith. Whoever loves Allaah and His Messenger more then
everything. And a person does not love someone except that he
loves that person for the sake of Allaah. And whoever hates to
revert back to disbelief, just as he would hate to be thrown in to
the Fire of Hell.

[Narrated in Saheeh Muslim / Book of Faith / Hadeeth - 43-67]

Anas narrated (Translation):


I have not touched any silk or cloth that was softer then the palm
of the Prophet (Muhammad) and I have not smelt
a better fragrance ever or ever known, then the fragrance that
emanated from the sweat of the Prophet (Muhammad).
[Narrated in Saheeh al-Bukhaare / Hadeeth - 3561]

Al-Haarith al-Ashaari narrated that the prophet (Muhammad)


said (Translation):
Allah ordered (the Prophet) Yahya Ibn Zakariyah (John son of
Zakariyah) to do five things and to pass the order on to the
Children of Israel so that they would do them too. Yahya was a
little slow to pass on those commands, so Esaa (Jesus) said to him
(Translation), Either you command them or I will. Yahya replied
(Translation), I fear if you command them first that I might be
tortured or destroyed.
Yahya then gathered the people in Baytil Maqdis (Jerusalem) until
the masjid (mosque) was full, and the people had to sit on the
balconies. He said (Translation):
Allaah has ordered me to act upon five commands and to order
you to act upon them.
1st: Is to worship Allaah alone and to associate no one with Him (in
your worship). The similitude of the one who associates others
with Allaah is like a man who bought a slave with his money and
paid with gold and silver. The man then said to the servant, this is
my estate, and this is the land that I want you to cultivate. Work it
and pay me what is due to me. However the slave paid the
earnings to someone other than his master. Would any of you be
pleased with such a slave?
2nd: Allaah commanded you to pray, when you pray you should not
look around, because Allaah is looking at His slave and Facing him
as long as he is not looking in a different direction.
3rd: And I command you with fasting, and Indeed the similitude is
the example of a man in a mob carrying a bag that has Musk in it.
Everyone around him likes the smell of the Musk. And Indeed the
smell of the fasting person is better with Allaah than the smell of
Musk.

4th: And I order you to give charity. And indeed the similitude of
this, is the example of a man who was captured by the enemy,
they chain his hands up to his neck and were set to execute him.
He said to them that he would pay them anything as a ransom.
They took the money and freed him.
5th: And order you to remember Allah. And indeed this is similar to
the example of a man who was chased by the enemy until he
reached a fortified fortress and sheltered himself in it. Similarly like
this the slave (of Allaah) cannot protect himself from the shaytaan
(devil) except by the Remembrance of Allaah.
The Prophet (Muhammad) further said
(Translation),
I order you with five; Allaah has ordered me with them:
1st: Hear and obey (the rulers in that which they order you with
obedience to Allah and there is no hearing and obeying in
disobedience to Allah).
2nd: To perform Jihad (means fighting or striving to overcome
ones own caprice that leads you to disobedience to Allaah, to
fight against those who oppose Allaah and His Messenger).
3rd: To migrate to the land of the Muslims
4th: And to stick to the main body of the Muslims
5th: He who breaks of from the main body of the Muslims by a
hands span has taken off from his neck the collar of Islaam, except
if he returns.

And whoever calls with the call of Jaahileeyah (Days of Ignorance),


then indeed he is from the pebbles of the Hell-Fire. A man said
(Translation), O Messenger of Allaah! Even if he prays and fasts?
He said (Translation), Even if he prays and fasts. So let your call be
to Allaah, for He has called you Muslim (one submitted to the Will
of Allaah), Believer (the one who is strong in faith with certainty),
worshippers of Allaah.
[Narrated in Sunan at-Tirmidhi / Hadeeth - 2863 Authenticated as
Hadeeth Saheeh (meaning that which is authentically narrated
from the Prophet Muhammad) by Imaam Muhammad Nasir-uddin
al-Albaani]

Abu Musa al-Ashaari narrated that (Muhammad) the Messenger


of Allaah said (Translation):
The similitude of a Believer that reads the Quran is like Atrunja (a
citrus Fruit, like Oranges), it has a very nice fragrant and tastes
good. And the similitude of the Believer that does not read the
Quran is like a date-fruit, it has no fragrant but it taste sweet. And
the similitude of the Hypocrite that reads the Quran is like basil, it
has a good fragrant but it is bitter. And the similitude of the
Hypocrite that does not read the Quran is like a colocynth, it has a
bad fragrant and it is bitter.

Abu Hurayrah narrated that (Muhammad) the Messenger of


Allaah ( Translation) was sending a delegation of
many people. He asked each one to recite what they had
memorized of the Quran. Each recited what he knew, and then the
youngest one of them approached and was asked, What have you
memorized of the Quran? He said (Translation), I have so and so
surah and surah Al-Baqarah He said (Translation), you have
memorized surah Al-Baqarah? he said, Yes. He said (Translation),
Go you are their leader. Then a respected man from amongst
them said; By Allaah! Nothing prevented me from memorizing
and learning surah Al-Baqarah except that I feared I would not be
able to carry out its commands. The Messenger of Allaah
said (Translation):
Learn /Study the Quran and recite it, for indeed the similitude of
the Quran to the one who learns it and recites it and stands with it
(in prayer) is that of a sac filled with Musk, its smell fills up the
whole place with it fragrance. And the similitude of the one who
learns it and sleeps with it is like a sac sealed with musk in it.
[Narrated in Sunan at-Tirmidhi / Hadeeth - 2876 Authenticated
as Hadeeth Daeef (meaning this narration is not authentically
narrated from the Prophet Muhammad. It is only used here as an
extension to the rest of the authentic narrations) by Imaam
Muhammad Nasir-uddin al-Albaani]

Anas narrated that (Muhammad) the Messenger of Allaah


said (Translation):
The similitude of the Believer who reads the Quran is the
similitude of a citrus fruit (like an orange), the Fragrant Aroma of
it is good and it tastes good. And the similitude of the Believer who
does not read the Quran is the similitude of the date fruit, which is
sweet in taste but has no smell.

And the similitude of the wicked person that does not read the
Quran is that of the colocynth which tastes bitter and which has
no smell. And the similitude of sitting in the company of the
righteous is that of the Musk Seller, Even thou he might not give
you some (for free) but the least is that you will receive the nice
Smell from him. And the similitude of sitting with the unrighteous
is that of the Blacksmith with his bellows, Even thou you might not
get the black soot on you, the least is that you would be affected
by the smoke.
[Narrated in Sunan Abu Dawud / Hadeeth - 2876 Authenticated
as Hadeeth Saheeh by Imaam Muhammad Nasir-uddin al-Albaani]

Abu Hurayrah narrated that (Muhammad) the Messenger of


Allaah said (Translation):
Whoever learns knowledge, which is not sought for seeking the
Face of Allaah, The Exalted and The Glorified, but that he learns it
in order to gain some worldly benefits thereby, will not smell the
Fragrant Aroma of Paradise on the Day of Judgement.
[Narrated in Sunan Abu Dawud / Hadeeth - 3664 Authenticated
as Hadeeth Saheeh by Imaam Muhammad Nasir-uddin al-Albaani]
Abdullah Ibn Amr Ibn al-As, said, the Messenger of Allaah
said (Translation),
My Hawd (Fountain) is so large that is takes a months journey to
cross. All its sides are equal in length. And its water is whiter than
sliver (and in another transmission it is narrated, Its water is
whiter than milk), and the fragrant of its perfume is of Musk.

And its drinking vessels are numerous as the stars in the sky.
Whoever drinks from it will never be thirsty thereafter ever.
[Narrated in Saheeh Muslim / Hadeeth 2292 / Baab (Door /Chapter)
About the Fountain of the Prophet and its Characteristics / Kitab
ul Fadaail]

Al-Baraa Ibn Aazib narrated (Translation),


We went out with the Messenger of Allaah with
the funeral of a man from the Ansaar and we came to the grave
and the niche in the side of the grave had not been dug out yet, so
the Messenger of Allaah sat and we sat around him as if we had
birds upon our heads (illustrating that everyone was silent and no
movements that a bird could have sat on our heads) and in his
hand he had a stick with which he was striking the ground. Then
he raised his head and said (Translation):
Seek refuse with Allaah from the Punishment of the Grave. two
or three times. Then he said, When the Believing slave is departing
this world and going to the Hereafter, Angels with white faces, as
if their faces were the sun, descends upon him. With them is a
shroud from the shrouds of Paradise and Perfume for embalming
from the Perfumes of Paradise. So they sit away from him at a
distance the eye can see and then the Angel of Death (Peace be
upon him) comes and sits by his head and says, O good soul, come
out to the forgiveness from Allaah and His good Pleasure. He said,
So it comes out just as a drop flows out from the mouth of the
drinking vessel, and he takes it, but does not leave it in his hand
even for the blink of an eye until they take it and place it in that
shroud and that Perfume, and there comes out from him a smell
like that of the Best Musk found upon the face of the Earth. He
said, So they ascend with it (the soul) and they do not pass by any
group of Angels except that they say, Who is this good and pure
soul? So they reply, So and so, son of so and so with the best of

his names which he used be called by in this world until they come
with him to the lowest Heaven and ask that it be opened for him,
so it is opened for him, so they accompany him through every
Heaven to the next one until he is taken up to the seventh Heaven,
and Allaah, The Al-Mighty, The Magnificent, says, Write the record
of my slave in the Illiyyun (Highest place in Paradise according to
his deeds) and return him to the earth to be joined with his body
(in the grave).
So then two Angels come to him and make him sit up. Then they
say, Who is your Lord? So he will say, My Lord is Allaah. So they
will say, What is your Deen (Religion / what belief did you up hold
and worship)? So he will say, My Deen is Islam (Submission to
Allaah, Creator of the Heavens and the Earth and everything in it).
So they say, Who is this man who was sent amongst you? So he
will say, He is the Messenger of Allaah. So they say, How did you
come to know that? So he will say, I read the Book of Allaah, and
Believed in it and attested to it. So a caller will call from Heaven,
Indeed My servant has spoken the Truth, so spread a place for
him in Paradise, and open a door to Paradise for him. He said, So
some of its Fragrant Aroma and scent comes to him and his grave
is extended as far as the eye can see. He said, A person with a
handsome face, beautiful clothes and having a nice fragrant
Aroma comes to him and says, Receive good new which will
please you. This is the Day which you were promised. So he says
to him, Who are you? Since your face appears to signify well. So
he says, I am your righteous deeds. He therefore says, O Lord,
establish the Last Hour, O Lord establish the Last Hour, so that I
may return to my family and wealth.
But when the Disbelieving slaves soul is leaving this world and
going onto the Hereafter, Angels with black faces descends upon
him, with them are coarse sack-clothes, and they sit at a distance
from him as far as the eyes can see. Then the Angel of Death
(Peace be upon him) comes and sits by his head and says, O foul
soul, come out to Allahs Displeasure and Anger. So the soul
spreads throughout the body, so he drags it out just as a pronged

roasting fork is pulled through wool. So he takes it, but does not
leave it in his hand for the blink of an eye until they put it in those
coarse sack-cloths. Then there comes from him an offensive
stench like that of the foulest smelling corpse rotting upon the
face of the Earth. So they ascend with it (the soul) and they do not
pass by any group of Angels except that they say, What is this foul
smell? So they say, So and so, son of so and so. Calling him with
the ugliest names which he used to be called with in this world,
until they come with him to the lowest Heaven and ask permission
to enter, and it is not opened for him. The Messenger of Allaah
then recited (Translation):
For them the gates of Heaven will not be opened, and they will
not enter Paradise until the camel goes through the eye of the
needle (which is impossible). [Surah Al-Araaf 7 / Verse 40]
So Allaah, The Al-Mighty, The Magnificent, says, Write his record
in the Sijjin (lowest place in Hell according to his deeds) within the
lowest earth. Then his soul is flung down, and he recited
(Translation):
And whoever worships other than Allaah, it is as if he had fallen
from the sky, and the birds had snatched him, or the wind had
thrown him to a far off place. [Surah Hajj 22 / Verse 31]
So his soul is returned to his body and two Angels come and make
him sit up. Then they will say to him, Who is your Lord? So he will
say, Ah Ah, I do not know. So they will say to him, What is your
Deen? So he will say, Ah, Ah, I do not know. So they will say to
him, Who is this man who was sent amongst you? So he will say,
Ah, Ah, I do not know. So a caller will call from Heaven, You have
lied so spread a place for him in the Fire (of Hell), and open a door
to the Fire for him. So some of its heat and scorching air comes
upon him, and his grave in constricted to the extent that his ribs
interlace, and a man with ugly face, dishevelled clothing and
smelling offensively comes to him and says, Receive news of that
which will grieve you, this is the Day which you were promised. So

he will say, Who are you? Your face is ugly and seems to signify
evil. So he will say, I am your evil deeds. So he will say, O Lord,
Do not establish the Last Hour.
[Narrated in Saheeh ul Jaami / The Hadeeth is Authentic as comes
in the Musnad of Imaam Ahmad Ibn Hanbal and others]

Abdullah Ibn Amr narrated that I saw (Muhammad) the


Messenger of Allaah performing the Tauwaf (Circulating) the
Kabah and he said (Translation):
How sanctified you are, and How Sanctified is your Aroma, and
How Great you are, and How Great is your Sanctuary! By Allaah,
Who holds the soul of Muhammad in His Hand! The sacredness of
the Believer (who believes in Allaah and worships Him) with Allaah
is Greater than your Sanctity! As well as his wealth and his Blood.

Abdullah Ibn Adi Ibn al-Hamraa said, I saw (Muhammad) the


Messenger of Allaah, riding upon his she-camel at al-Hazwari (a
place in Makkah) and said (Translation):
By Allah! Indeed you are the Best of the Land upon the earth of
Allah. And the Dearest of land to me. And by Allah! I would not
have left you, if I was not forced out (by these pagans).

Allaah the Ever-Merciful says in the Mighty Quraan (Translation):


It is a written Book; It is witnessed only by those who are nearest
(to Allaah). Indeed the righteous will be in Bliss. Reclining on high
couches, looking at each other. In their faces you see the
brightness of Bliss. They are given to drink sealed pure juice (of
pure Wine). The seal of which is Musk, for that let all those, who
wants to strive, strive (for this Bliss). And this Juice is mixed with
Tasmin, this Tasmin is a spring from which drink those who are
nearest to Allaah.
[Surah Al-Mutaffifin 83/Verse 20-28]

Ibn Kathir mentions in his Great book of Tafsir (Exegesis of The


Mighty Quraan) Al-Quraan ul Adhim, the meaning of
(Translation):
The seal of which is Musk
Consider here the difference between the harmful wine of this
world, and the pure, undiluted and sweet wine of Paradise in the
Hereafter. The more one drinks of it, the more he comes to have
the smell of Musk, unlike the wine of this world, whose drinker is
famous for whatever foul, disgusting, offensive smell is detected
in him. According to Ibn Abbas, Allaah Al-Mighty will sweeten the
wine for them, and the Musk is the last thing to be added to it, with
which it is sealed. This kind of wine will be mixed up with a sweeter
drink known as Tasnim, the best of the drinks which the
inhabitants of Paradise will ever have, from whose spring only
those nearest to Allaah drink as pure and clean, with no mixture,
unlike others of the people of Paradise, such as the righteous, to
them it will be mixed up with other kinds of drink (of Paradise).
[Tafsir Ibn Kathir / Surah Al-Mutaffifin / Verse 26]

Allaah the Ever-Merciful says in the Mighty Quraan (Translation):


Go with my shirt and lay it on my fathers face. He will recover his
sight, and bring me all your family. When the caravan left (Egypt)
their father said, Indeed I can smell the Aroma of Yusuf (Joseph).
Even thou might call me mad! They said, By Allaah! You are still in
your old error (that Yusuf is still alive). And when the bearer of the
glad tidings came, he threw the shirt on Yacobs (Jacobs) face, by
which he regained his sight. Then he said, Did I not tell you that I
know from Allaah what you do not know.
[Surah Yusuf 12 /Verse 93-96]

Ibn Kathir mentions in his Great book of Tafsir (Exegesis of The


Mighty Quraan) Al-Quraan ul Adhim, the meaning of above
verses (Translation):
We said earlier that Yacobs (Jacob) eyes became white
(meaning he turned to be blind) because of his excessive weeping
over Yusuf (Joseph) and his brother (Banjiman). Being informed
of that, Yusuf ordered his brethren to take his shirt and go with it
to throw over the face of his father, so that he would recover and
restore his sight. He also ordered them to come to him together
with his father and all of Yacobs offsprings. Yacob, who knew
from Allaah what others knew not, in view of his Prophet hood,
and said to those who remained with him from amongst his sons
that he could Smell the Presence of Yusuf no matter they might
think of him as too weak-minded and old to know the reality of
things, and this was just their opinion when they replied to him
that he was still in his old error (because of his great love he had
for Yusuf, he never forgot him). However, this was a harsh reply
to their father, which was not befitting to a son to say to his father,
nor for anyone to say to Allahs Prophet.

Did You Know Tib are the Drive of our Souls and the Power of
our Bodies?
Ibn Qayyim mentions in at-Tib an-Nabawi (Translation):
"Tib are the fuel of the soul, which is the engine of the powers
of the body. Therefore, various strengths and powers in the
body are nurtured in the presence of Tib (attar, perfume oils
essential oils). Similarly, the powers of the body are nurtured by
consuming food and drink, feel comfort and elation, being close
to loved ones, receiving good news and by the absence of
hateful, disliked persons whose presence is heavy on the heart.
Indeed, associating with disliked persons weakens the strength
and causes sadness and depression, just as the affect that fever
and foul odour have on the body.

The significance of Perfume in Islam and to The Humanity

| 47

It also has good effect in preserving good health and removing


many ailments because owning to its stimulants that which helps
activate the instinctive powers that the body may enjoy."
[Narrated in Medicine of the Prophet /p317]

7.

Did you know Allah (God) Loves for His Creation Tib?
Abdullah Ibn Masoud narrated the Prophet (Muhammad)
said (Translation):
No Paradise for the one that has in his heart an atoms
weight of Pride. A man said, Indeed a man loves that his
garments be elegant and likewise his shoes. He said
(Translation),
Indeed Allaah is Beautiful and Loves that which of beauty,
but pride is that you reject the truth and you look down upon
the people.
[Saheeh Muslim / Hadeeth 91]

Indeed the Human being, from those things our Natural


Disposition leads to, is that which was described regarding the
meaning of Tib.
Therefore if Tib (attar, perfume oils, essential oils) are the things
that drive our soul, mind and body, to be in a state that is of
serenity, tranquillity and joyfulness , than it goes true for foul
odours and the things that the souls hate and dislikes.

The significance of Perfume in Islam and to The Humanity

| 48

Therefore attar, perfume oils, essential oils are the things that
bring about the feeling of being in Paradise and in a tranquil state
of mind that will leave your day, one of joyfulness.

8.

Where did Tib Originate from?


Attar, perfume oils, essential oils have been known from the time
Adam was created, for he dwelled in Paradise with his wife, Eve,
thus he did feel and taste the serenity, tranquillity and its
beautiful aroma that it is created with. Than Adam was sent
down to the earth and its knowledge was passed on from
generation to generation, some adapting to it and others coming
to learn about the different kinds of fragrances, musk, attar,
perfume oils, and essential oils. For Allaah is Beautiful and loves
that which is beautiful, therefore the knowledge of Tib and its
aroma is not something God (Allah) would let the people forget
as weve learnt from the saying of Allaah the Al-Mighty Himself,
in The Mighty Quraan and in the saying of Muhammad the Last
Prophet sent to the Mankind and Jinns (ghosts /Demons)

9.

Misconception that Tib (Attar, Perfume Oil, Essential Oils Musk


Oils) were only known few thousand years ago!
Some believe that attar, perfume oils were first known by the
kings and royals of Egypt, India and the Arabian Peninsula but
this is wrong for it has been known that essential oils, musk,
attar, perfumes oils are things of Paradise, than for sure Allaah
(God) taught Adam all the things in existent, and as we learnt
that nice Aroma are things that are loved to the soul, mind and
body, plus its from natural disposition and purity of faith.
Therefore how is it that its only known a few thousand years
ago?

The significance of Perfume in Islam and to The Humanity

| 49

Thus perfume oils are not something that is and was used by the
rich as some claim but rather we see and learn that it is for those
who seek serenity, tranquillity and joyfulness as was mentioned
earlier about the meaning of the word Tib.

2.

torture your children by treating tonsillitis by pressing the tonsils,

[Narrated In Medicine of the Prophet /p331]

6.

Did know that Some of the Benefits of Indian Qust (ud) are?
Ibn Qayyim mentions in at-Tib an-Nabawi that (Translation):
Both kinds of Qust are hot and dry in the third degree, and they dry
out the phlegm and colds. When they are taken as a drink, they
help weak liver and stomach and colds that may accompany such
types of illness. In addition Qust also helps against quartan fever,
the pain on the side of the body and poisons. When face is anointed
with Qust that is rubbed with water and honey, they heal the spots
that appear on the face."
[Narrated in Medicine of the Prophet /p332]

7.

Indian Qust?
Galinus said (Translation):
"That the Qust Heals tetanus, the pain in the sides and removes
spots, which he called the seeds of the pumpkin."

Some unskilled doctors are unaware of or deny the Qust has such
an effective remedy against the pain in the sides of the body. If
these inexperienced doctors became aware of what Galinus has
stated about the Qust, they will quickly embrace it as if it was
Divine text. Moreover, many doctors have also stated that Qust
helps against the pain in the flank that is accompanied by
phlegm, the matter as Al-Khattabi related from Muhammad bin
Al-Jahm.

Qayyim al-Jwaziyah]

Conclusion
In the Name of Allah, All Praise is for Him, as He Deserves, and
may the praise and peace be upon Muhammad and his family and
his companions and all those who follow them in Guidance up to
the Day of Judgement.
To proceed:
As we said, in our introduction, that it is a great blessing that
Allaah has bestowed upon us the faculty to use smell and taste in
distinguishing what is good and bad, what is desirable and
undesirable, and what is liked and what is disliked. And this can
only be achieved by the soul that is thoughtful and alert in
pondering the creation, whether it be in the creation of
him/herself, or in how the 360 joints in her body is connected
together to make up his/her skeleton or more so sophisticated
issues like how the planets, solar systems, and galaxies came
about and are formed, without a Creator?
Can you imagine any governing body without a dictator, whether
it be in governing a family, a tribe, a society, or a nation?
Then know, this is a Great blessing, that Allah has bestowed the
nation of Muhammad with Islaam, as He did with those Prophets
before him, but he is the last of Prophets sent to the mankind
and the Jinns (ghosts /demons) as a guidance to them and a
illumination by which they may attain the Pleasure of their Lord
in this world and the Hereafter.

How sad is it to see, how many people are deceived by the wolfs
of mankind as the saying goes:

People are like wolfs in the disguise of sheeps

By using the lawful things in the wrong way or placing the


rightful things in the wrong place. How today the biggest
consumers of perfumes are women and it is targeted towards
them and only Allaah knows best how hard they are trying to
fulfil the craves of these wolfs! It is a fact that is undeniable, that
these disbelieving people who are not Muslims (meaning those
that have not submitted to the Will of Allaah), knows, that by
wearing perfume, it incites or calls to the end of its goal! Illegal
sexual intercourse Zina!
The facts are in our faces, but how many eyes are blind and how
many ears are deaf, to even hear or see, to understand.

Indeed Allah, The All-Knowing, The All-Wise, says, In a Hadeeth


Qudsi (Translation):
And Indeed I have Created My servants all of them upon the
inclination to work/worship Me. And indeed it is the shaytaan
(devil) that comes to them and takes them away from the correct
Religion. And he (the devil) makes unlawful, what I have made
lawful. And he (the devil) orders you with associating partners to
Me in your worship of Me, for which there has been revealed no
authority (revelation) to him (the devil) to do so.
[Saheeh Muslim / Hadeeth 2865]

Allaah the Ever-Merciful says (Translation):


Indeed the devil is an enemy to you, so take him as an enemy,
indeed what he calls his party to is that they be of the companions
of the Fire (Hell).
[Surah Al-Faatir 35 / Verse 6]

Allaah, The Ever-Merciful, The Creator of the Heavens and the


earth, says (Translation):
Shaytaan (the devil) threatens you with poverty and orders you
with evil morals. But Allaah promises you forgiveness from Him and
bounty. And Allaah is All-Encompassing and All-Knowing.
[Quraan / Surah Al-Baqarah 2/ Verse 268]

And Allaah the Ever-Merciful says (Translation):


O Children of Adam! Do not let the Shaytaan (devil) seduce you in
the same way as he did with your parents (Adam and Eve) by which
they were made to exit Paradise, and he tore off their garment in
order to uncover their shameful parts of their nakedness. He and
his tribes see you from where you cannot see them (because jinns
are from the things we cant see of the material world). Indeed We
have made the devils to be friends and allies of those who do not
Believe (by putting their trust with Allaah, and worshipping Him)
.
[Surah Al-Araaf 7 / Verse 27]

Thus the shaytaan (satan) came to our parents, Adam and Eve in
the form of a good adviser, and he whispered to them as it
comes in the Mighty Quraan (Translation):
The shaytaan (devil) whispered to them, that he may strip them
so as to expose their shameful of their nakedness, by saying:
Your Lord has not forbidden this tree to you, except to prevent
you from becoming Angels or becoming those from immortal.
Then he (the devil) gave an oath to them saying, Indeed I am to
you but a sincere good adviser. And thus he cunningly seduced
them. When they ate from the tree their shameful parts appeared
to them, and they both started to cover themselves with the leaves
of Paradise.
Their Lord called out to them and said, Did I not tell you not to
approach this tree and that shaytaan (the devil) is a manifest
enemy to you.
[Surah Al-Araaf 7 / Verse 20-22]

Thus he the devil beautified to them his speech so as to allure


them to the sin, so they ate, as Allaah the Ever-Merciful, The AllWise says (Translation),
For the shaytaan (devil) did have them to slip from that which
they were enjoying (Paradise). We said, Go down to the earth! We
have made some of you to the others an enemy. The earth will be
your dwelling place and an enjoyment for a while. Then Adam
received words from his Lord, He forgave him. Indeed He is Best of
those who accepts the repentance of those who repent to Him and
He is Ever-Merciful.Whenever there comes to you guidance from
Me and he who follows My Guidance will have no fear nor shall they
grieve .
[Quraan / Surah Al-Baqarah / Verse 36-38]

How amazing, from the amazing of affairs today that people are
happy with artificial over the natural, by which Allah has created
things, to the point that we find our Muslim women has fallen for
this western trend of the name Make-Up that it has become
one of the biggest industry of cosmetics worth over Billions of
dollars! And we see these same women from the west are
leaving this trend!
As the proverb goes:
They ate the meat and threw the bones on us, now they want our
meat
So beware O men and women of Islaam! Look over yourself and
your families from the evil plots of these wolfs.
For we are not in need of falling in to the traps of these wolfs, for
Islaam has not left a stone unturned in explaining that which will
brings us benefit and harm in this world and the Hereafter, to the
point, as we have seen that which is used as an extension to our
attires, (Perfume) is explained to us in detail, that there is a smell
and an aroma to our soul, our body, clothings, our abodes and
paradise and likewise these aromas are either a allure to Bliss
(the Pleasure of Allah) or it is a allure to seduction of the caprice
and both, has its consequences, either you will be in joy and bliss
or in a state of sorrow and grieving in the end. Hence what then
about those things, that is more important to us in our life then
perfume?
The Scholars of this Mighty Religion by which Allah, lets no other
religion to prevail over it, says, that this word Make-Up is alien
to the language of the Arab and to this Religion of Islaam.

Allaah, The Creator of the Heavens and the earth, The King of all
Kings, says (Translation):
It is He who has sent His Messenger with Guidance and the
Religion of Truth to manifest it over all religions, although the
pagans may hate it.
[Quraan / Surah Tawbah 9 / Verse 33]

Therefore look O men and women of understanding how the


devil has mislead us in using the lawful in the unlawful way and
putting the rightful things in the wrong place.
To the extent that you would not find an advert or a bill board
where a perfume is being advertised except that is has an
incitement towards illegal sexual relationships (zina) and that
which is apparent from it. And we ask Allaah that He makes us
from amongst those who uses the lawful in the lawful way and
that we put the rightful things in the rightful places (Ameen).
Indeed Allaah the Ever-Merciful, The Most Knowledgeable and
All-Wise says (Translation):
