Shuraih bin Hani (May Allah be pleased with him) reported:
I asked `Aishah (may Allah be pleased with her):
"What was the first thing which the Prophet (PBUH) would do when he entered his house?
'' She replied:
"He would
use Miswak (tooth-stick)

Abu Musa Al-Ash`ari (May Allah be pleased with him) reported:
I came to the Prophet (PBUH) once and
noticed the tip of Miswak (tooth-stick) on his tongue
[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].

`Aishah (May Allah be pleased with her) reported: The Prophet (PBUH) said, "
The Miswak (tooth-stick)
cleanses and purifies the mouth and pleases the Rubb
[An-Nasa'i and Ibn Khuzaimah].
'' means a medium and means of purification. "
" means an instrument/tool for
purification. In other words, on the one side, Miswak is a means of cleaning and purifying the mouth, and on the
other, a way to attain the Pleasure of Allah.

Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Prophet (PBUH) said, "
There are five acts
which conform to the pure nature: Circumcision, removing of the pubic hair, clipping the nails, plucking the
underarm hair and trimming the moustache
[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].
" literally means beginning, innovation, invention or making something altogether new, but
here it means instinct or such nature or disposition which is inborn. Some people have defined it as that old way
which was liked by all the Prophets and on which all the Divine laws had full agreement. That is to say, they are
natural to man. In any case, one should adopt all these five good qualities in such a way as if they are a part of his
nature. Moreover, they are also highly important from the point of view of cleanliness and purification.

`Aishah (May Allah be pleased with her) reported: The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said, "
There are ten
demands of pure nature: trimming the moustache, letting the beard grow, using Miswak (tooth-stick), snuffing up
water into the nose (in ablution), paring the nails, washing the bases of the finger joints; plucking the underarm hair,
removing of the pubic hair and removing impurities with water from the affected part after a call of nature
The subnarrator said: I forgot the tenth but it might possibly be the rinsing of the mouth (in ablution).
This Hadith tells us about ten qualities which are natural to human beings. Some `Ulama' are of the
opinion that the tenth quality among them is circumcision. Anyway, the importance of these ten qualities and the
stress on them are evident. The first thing among them is the trimming of moustache. This is Sunnah of the Prophet
(PBUH) and is meant to cut the projected hair on the upper lip.
