The Prophet's Cleanliness and Orderliness
The Holy Prophet of Islam was fond of scent 197 and spent more on buying perfumes than on food. 198 His pleasant smell filled the air of any place he passed, so that whosoever passed there knew that the Holy Prophet of Islam had passed that way. 199
He used to brush his teeth frequently 200 and washed his blessed hands both before and after meals. 201 Whenever the Holy Prophet of Islam was about to leave his house, he would look into a mirror or into water; he always left home with a clean, pleasant appearance. 202
