User Rating:  / 3

Hazrat `Aishah رضی اللہ عنہا reported: We used to prepare for the Messenger of Allah صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم a Miswak (tooth-stick) and the water for making Wudu'. Whenever Allah wished to awaken him from sleep at night, he صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم would brush his teeth with Miswak, make Wudu', and perform Salat. [Muslim].

This Hadith shows how particular the Prophet صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم was about using Miswak. Besides pointing out the importance of Miswak, it also throws light on the noble conduct of the wives of the Prophet صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم as it shows how keen they were about his needs, habits and temperament.
