The Benefits of Miswak

Benefits of Miswak: We are always giving the instructions to the Muslims just Farz worships such as Salah, Fasting, Hajj, Zakat etc. But, Islam is not just limited to these Farz things. Islam also tells to the Ummah of Prophet (PBUH) the things that are besides their spiritual responsibilities which are good for their worldly life. Some of Muslims visit Saudi Arabia to see the Green Tomb of Prophet’s (PBUH) Mosque with Ramadan Umrah with Best Dates and perform all the Sunnah.

Similarly, we should perform these Sunnah in our homeland too because Allah is everywhere and He Knowing and Listening. Out of the many Prophet’s (PBUH) Sunnah’s one of the most frequently observed Sunnah is Miswaak, a Natural Toothpaste.

For the purpose of cleaning teeth, it refers to using the tree stick. It was what Hazrat Muhammad (PBUH) used to do before every Namaz and there are numerous Hadiths concerning Miswak as well.

Miswak and Hadiths

There are many Hadiths that show the importance of Miswak in our life. See here some of them,

Hadith# 1

The Holy Prophet (PBUH) said that,

“Four things are between the observes of the Ambiyaa – circumcision, submission of perfume, Miswaak, and marriage.” (Tirmidhi)

Hadith# 2

At another place, the Holy Prophet (PBUH) said that,

“Make a consistent use of the Miswaak, for verily, it is healthy for the mouth and it is a Pleasure for the Creator (i.e. Allah is happy with the Muslim who practices the Miswaak).’” (Bukhari)

Hadith# 3

In another Hadith, the Messenger of Allah said that,

“Was it not for my terror of imposing a trouble on my Ummah I would have ordered that the Miswaak be practiced for every Salah.” (Bukhari)

Hadith# 4

Our Beloved Holy Prophet (PBUH) said another place,

“Practice the Miswaak, for verily, it cleans the mouth, and it is a Pleasure for the Allah. Hazrat Jibril (A.S) urged me so much to practice the Miswaak that I am afraid that its use would be decreed mandatory upon me and upon my Ummah. If I didn’t terror imposing hardship on my Ummah I would have made it mandatory for my people. Verily, I practice the Miswaak so much that I dread the front part of my mouth being peeled (by continuous and plentiful brushing with Miswaak).’” (Ibn Majah)

I think the importance of Miswak very clear from these Hadiths. We must be brushing with Miswaak instead of artificial toothbrushes.
