Respecting Allah SWT and His Speech through Cleanliness

‘Aishah رضّى الله عنها narrated that the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم said:

السواك مطهرة للفم مرضاة للرب

“The miswak purifies (cleanses) the mouth and is pleasing to the Rabb.”

[An-Nasa’i, 5; Musnad Ahmad, 23652; Ibn Khuzaymah, 141; Ibn Hibban, 1081, Tabarani and others – graded as saheeh by majority]


Ali رضي الله عنه has been reported to have said:

إن أفواهكم طرق القرآن فطيبوها بالسواك

Verily, your mouths are paths of the Qur’an, so brush them clean.

[Ibn Majah, 287; Al-Bazzar, who said the sanad was jayyid; graded as Saheeh by al-Albani in ‘Saheeh ibn Majah’, 239]
