Sunnah 122: Beautify yourself for your family

September 30, 2010

بسم الله  الرحمن الرحيم

A companion named Shurayh ibn Hani’ (ra) said, “I asked Aisha (ra), ‘What did the Prophet, (pbuh), do first when he entered his house?’ She replied, ‘Use the siwak.'” [Muslim]

Many of us beautify ourselves when we leave the house or if we know we are going to see people. But the Prophet (pbuh) also ensured he was physically pleasant for his family by using the siwak when he first entered the house.

So specifically, we should attempt to use the siwak more often, but on a broader level, let us not be ok with being dirty or unpleasant when we are home, and at least do the minimum of being clean and brushing our teeth.
