Attar Oils (Perfume oils)

It is sunnah to use attar, perfume oil, musk oil specially for Friday (Juma’ah)


Imam an-Nawawi brings a chapter in his Riyad-us-Saliheen “Etiquette of attending company and sitting with companions” and in there he brings a hadeeth narrated by Salman al-Farisi that the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) said:


“If a man takes a bath on Friday, purifies himself thoroughly, uses oil and perfume (Attar) which is available in the house,sets forth for the Masjid, does not (forcibly) sit between two persons, offers the prayer that is prescribed for him and listens to the Imam silently, his sins between this Friday and the previous Friday will be forgiven.”
