What is the siwaak for?

On the authority of Hudhaifa bin al Yamaan;

That when the Prophet woke up from the night, he would wash his mouth with the siwaak. – (agreed upon by Bukhari and Muslim)

Benefits extracted from the Hadeeth;

* Confirming the fact that using the siwaak after sleeping is legislated in Islam. The reason for it is that sleep is a reason for, or leads to the changing of the smell of the mouth, and the siwaak is the tool that is used to clean it. It is from the Sunnah to use it in this situation, and also in all situations that cause a change in smell of the mouth.
* Affirming the fact that the siwaak is legislated for every situation that changes the smell of the mouth to something unpleasant.
* Also confirming the fact that cleanliness is something that is legislated in all matters in general, and that it is from the Sunnah of the Prophet and from the good mannerisms that should be practiced.

Ruling on the Siwaak

On the authroity of Abu Huraira;

The Messenger (May Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him) said:

“If I didnt see it as being a problem on my nation (The Muslims), I would have commanded them to use the Miswak for every prayer.” — (agreed upon by Bukhari and Muslim)

Benefits extracted from the hadeeth:

* The recommendation of using the siwaak and its virtue.
* The affirmation of the fact that the usage of the siwaak is actually from the legislation of Islam.
* The virtue of the wudoo and prayer that the siwaak is used for.
* That the only thing that kept him from obligating its usage, is that he did not want it to be a hardship upon the Muslims.
* To show the concern the Prophet (May Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him) had for the Muslims, and that he feared for them.
* That the legislation is easy, and there is not found in it hardship.
* That protecting from the bad things is placed before getting some benefit.
