Sunnah Way Of Applying Perfume

Zenvi

Whats this Oud About?
Assalamu'alaykum and greetings.

I recently came across this speech clip by our dear Shaykh Ibrahim Osi Efa in which he describes the method by which the Beloved Prophet Muhammed peace and blessings be upon him applied perfume. It also goes into the meaning of the hadith that describes which type of perfume is to be used by men and women.

Also anyone who watched the clip, do you know what the Shaykh means by the Prophet peace be upon him perforating the perfume?

That is very specific and detailed. I am not Catholic but I teach at Catholic schools and I just went to a training day yesterday. It's amazing all of the very very specific details that religions have accumulated over the centuries of their existence as people have come up with these traditions and passed them on. It is interesting, although "not for me" as a non catholic, but historically interesting to see what details people thought were worth recording. It would be interesting to look at all of the different religions and some of the traditions that they have related to scent and perfume incense and look for common threads or themes.

I have a training in horticulture and remember attending a wonderful lecture given at the time (around 2000) It was mainly about the evolution of planets and ferns in particular. But it covered the evolution of all plants in general.
As humans, we have been evolving along our way by watching and learning from nature. For food, for shelter, for medicine and for perfume.
Early indications from research shows people have been attempting to capture the natural scents of there locations for eons. It was a wonderful lecture. One that gave more information then the title suggested.
Nature had some extremely scented plants back then.
Today, we are still trying to put it in a bottle.... alhamdulallah....

Wa alaikum ussalaam, peace be upon you.

I know I am very late to this but I would like to reply to your question about perforation.
Perhaps vials that contained the perfume in those days were not made of glass. Perhaps they were made of leather or something similar. After it had been left for a year or longer and it was ready to be used, instead of opening the pouch or container, a small hole may have been made in the container to allow the perfume to be used. This is not a definitive answer, I do not dare to speak of our Nabi without knowledge, but I am just sharing my thoughts about the actions of people in those days.

Also is the amber mentioned in the ahadith referring to ambergirs?
