Did you know that wearing perfumes is actually a sunnah? Sunnah is the habitual practice and tradition of Prophet Muhammad ﷺ
The wearing of perfumes has been mentioned many times in multiple hadiths.
In a famous hadith, it was narrated that Prophet Muhammad ﷺ would apply fragrances to pray, especially on Fridays and he would also advise his companions to do the same.
Narrated Salman Al-Farsi:
"Anyone who takes a bath on Friday and cleans himself as much as he can and puts oil (on his hair) or scents himself... all his sins in between the present and the last Friday will be forgiven."
(Sahih al-Bukhari 910)
