Pray with oil in hair

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.


Abu Hurairah reported the Prophet (saws) as saying, "Whoever has hair should honor it."

Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 3.245 Narrated by Aisha

The Prophet (saws) used to bend his head (out) to me while he was in Itikaf (seclusion) in the mosque during my monthly periods, and I would comb and oil his hair.


Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 2.33 Narrated by Salman Al Farsi

Allah's Messenger (saws) said, "Anyone who takes a bath on Friday and cleans himself as much as he can, and puts oil (on his hair) or scents himself; and then proceeds for the prayer and does not force his way between two persons (assembled in the mosque for the Friday prayer), and prays as much as is written for him and remains quiet when the Imam delivers the Khutba, all his sins in between the present and the last Friday will be forgiven."


In light of the above narrations of the Prophet (saws), the Messenger of Allah (saws) would apply oil in his hair and encouraged the believers to do so.


Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.



Your brother and well wisher in Islam,
