    Can miswaak be done by branch of any tree?

    Report bad ads?

    Q: Can miswaak (brushing teeth with a twig) be done by branch of any tree?

    A: All types of tree twigs may be used for Miswaak with the exception of:

    a) the pomegranate tree,

    b) the basil plant, it can cause leprosy,

    c) the myrtle tree, it can also cause leprosy. It, too, should not be used as a toothpick.

    Preferably, twigs from a bitter tree should be used, for, it (wood from a bitter tree) cleanses the mouth and strengthens the teeth and stomach. Ensure that it is not harmful or poisonous.

    The best Miswaak is from the olive tree. Sayyidina Mu'aadh radhiallahu anhu narrates the following Hadeeth from Rasulullah sallallahu alaihi wa sallam: "The best Miswaak is from the olive tree, a blessed tree. It cleans the mouth and it is my Miswaak and the Miswaak of the Ambiyaa before me." (As Si'aayah).

    It also Mustahabb to use dry twigs from the plant called Salvadora Persica, Araak in Arabic and called Peelu in Urdu, which has been soaked in water and become soft. Rasulullah sallallahu alaihi wa sallam and the Sahaabah used Miswaak from this tree.

    Once in a shop I saw miswak toothpaste, like in a tube the way other toothpastes are, I was wondering if you could use it?

    Miswaak toothpaste is certainly allowed . But not as a substitute to the Miswaak itself. Original is original.

    Agreed .... my source is weak for this. Try to ignore it for now.

    Shukran for bringing it to my attention
