We Had a Tongue Cleaner Over 1400 Years Ago
In The Name of Allaah, The Most Merciful, The Bestower of Mercy.
Abu Burda narrated, “My father [Abu Musa – may Allaah be pleased with him] said, ‘I came to the Prophet [peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him] and saw him carrying a Siwaak in his hand and cleaning his teeth, saying, ‘U’, ‘U’, as if he was retching while the Siwaak was in his mouth'”.
Brief Reminder Regarding This Hadeeth
It is legislated to use the Siwaak on the tongue for a longer time. As for the teeth, what is more desired is that the Siwaak is made to come into contact with them widthways – across the mouth. Siwaak is not specified for use on the teeth only. (1)
