    • Assalamu alaikum , thank u for the article. I’ve been using the miswak for years. Alhamdulila, it’s a great blessing to the umma. I have one question: how can I keep the miswak dry after each use?

  1. Jazaakumullahu khayran for this great remembrance about miswaq…..indeed miswaq is very important to our teeth morethan a toothpaste nd toothbrush…. Shukuran..

  2. My grandparents use this constantly- thanks for the informative article, I’ve always wondered about the Miswak. I will get one soon inshallah

  3. Assalaamalaikum wa RahmatuLLAHi wa Barakaatuh

    i have been using the Miswak now for some time and it definitely has a lot of benefit.

    i want to share an incident that i had. i once went to a dentist and he told me that my gums were going bad but they were not bad enough so he could perform the procedure; he would wait till my next office visit. Meanwhile i started using miswak and when i went back to see the dentist he was amazed to see that my gums were actually healing and getting better instead of getting worse. i mentioned to him about the miswak but i do not know what he did.

    JazaakumuLLAH Khairan for all you great articles.
    i am actually looking for a salvadora persica tree and was wondering if you could help me find one.

    JazaakumuLLAH Khairan fee Daarain
    ALLAH Yardaa alaikum wa Baarik ALLAH feekum

    • Salaam sister, jus read ur comment and was encouraged to start using it myself as I have miswak but have not used it as yet but my dentist is not happy with my gums, neither am I they bleed with every brush and mouthwashes leave a nasty burning sensation but after ur comments I will inshallah start and hope there r improvements for me inshallah.

  4. I have been using the Miswak for just over a year now alhamdulillah. I have seen such improvement that I am truly astounded! I cannot stress its importance enough. Even for those with no oral health issues definitely use it. I used to suffer from bad oral health and now I don’t look back. I cannot stand toothpaste now (lol) whenever I use toothpaste now my mouth and teeth feel so unclean and it is not until I use the good old siwak that I am content! It is most certainly not just any old stick!

  5. Assalaamualaikum. I found the article highly informative and helpful. Sad but true, inspire of knowing the benifits and virtues of using the miswak, I do not use it.
    . Your article has inspired me to do so. May Allah help me to revive this Sunnah and derive its benifits. Aameen

  6. As’Salam Alaykum. I have just started using the Miswak stick after learning about it in my islamic studies class. As a convert to Islam I knew nothing about this practice. Alhamduillah I enjoy using it and I encourage the ummah to pick up this pratice of the prophet Muhammad (May Allah’s Peace & Mercy be upon him). Not only is it good for you healthwise, but you receive so many Blessings from Allah as well. Peace & Blessings.

  7. Allhamdullilah this article has so many benefits of miswak.Insha ALLAH I’ll try to fallow sunnah more aftton and thank u for the writer for such a wonderful article

  9. jazakAllah khairan for The great reminder .. We go after sophisticated things but often times forget the simple down to earth lessons learnt from our Prophet saw .. Will be more regular also.. Shukran Productive Muslims

  10. I try to use it often and the most amazing thing my mouth never smells when I wake up in the morning!

  11. How do you store the miswak? I find that when I place it near the bathroom sink, it gets a little dirty & smelly. I tried special cases for it but the enclosed wet miswak is even worse

  12. Subhanallah, I’ve been wanting to know the proper use of miswak, because I used to use it like a normal brush. Always heard that we should brush from top right to the top left, then to to bottom right to the bottom left. Of course, I don’t know the level of authenticity (read it from a miswaak book).

    Masha’Allah it has numerous benefits, great article masha’Allah! :D It’ll be a great loss of a great opportunity if we don’t use this sunnah practice — imagine all the rewards and the great sunnah practice which we would miss out on if we don’t use the miswaak!

  13. this a good reminder, Masha Allah. following the sunna is always rewarding both spiritually and physically.

  14. Alhamdulillah, the benefits of miswak have been beautifully explained. If the figure of man using miswak was without moustache it would have more in line with sunnah

  15. Yeah, I started to use it before 2 years , Its really healthy for my mouth when I compare to tooth brush but I use tooth brush too , I have got some shine and it’s polishing my teeth (miswak ) it has a big refreshment than toothbrush , and I am sure you will love it , sunnah is always beautiful to watch and do

  16. Assalamualikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barkahatuhu !!!

    Bis Millah Hir Rahmane Rahim !!!

    My dear brother in Islam Al Hamddu Lillah may Allah Rabil Aalameen reward you for your effort creating awareness about Sunnah of our beloved prophet Muhammad Sallahau Aalaihi Wassallam.

    In today’s swift changing competitive world when ummah is so busy in earning there life styles what best then following Sunnah and Quraan in there life Al Hamdu Lillah it will be wonderful gift. I am sure In Sha Allah things will change and many of our brothers and sisters will benefit In Sha Allah.

    Jazak Allah Hu Khairan for sharing such a important SAunnah of Rasyl Ullah Sallalahu Alaihi Wassallam

    Ba’arak Allah Hu Feekum Akhi

    Dr. Abdul Jabbar Ibn Wahab Bin Al Ahmed

  17. Assalaamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatulah, Jazakumulah Khair for this beneficial reminder of the Sunnah of the Prophet (saw). I have a couple miswak but, forget to use them. Also I appreciate the brother who listed 20 benefits for using it. Now I know the proper way of you using miswak Alhamdulillah

  18. JazakhAllah Khairun, nice article
    Undoubtedly miswak is extremely beneficial HOWEVER I am a dentist and there are some patients who only use it on their front teeth and have ended up losing their back teeth from gum disease. So do make sure you are using it thoroughly and listen to where your dentist says you need to clean more, you may have a problem that needs other things in addition to miswak e.g floss or interdental brushes.
    because it can’t get into the nooks and crannies. The main thing is the Nabi S.A.W emphasised oral hygeine, whichever method you use. Allahu Alam.

  19. Assalam alaikum,

    Another great article published by Productive Muslim. All the articles I have read have been superbly written, informative, and (maybe most importantly) practical.
    This article is the same, but that’s not all. Unfortunately this is the first article on the Productive Muslim site that links to amazon to a sale of a product. Am not sure when this site became a source of advertisement, but I hope it doesn’t last, or am sure many readers may cancel their e-mail subscription. Secondly even though the article linked to is in fact something that will bring barakah and other blessings,, the item is ridiculously priced. It’s originaly price is claimed to be $20 (US dollars) for a stick in a plastic case! But wait..that’s not all!! It’s reduced price (as if it was ever $20) is only $12 for a stick in a plastic case!!. WOW. Buy a stick from Pakistan, get it put in a plastic case and we will charge you over 1200 Rupees for it!! Guys..do yourselves a favour. Read the article..it is, like most, if not all, on Productive Muslim, excellent and informative. But then go to a reputable Islamic store and get yourselves a miswak for a fraction of the price of this.
    Muslims making an unfair profit out of other muslims who are trying to lead a life closer to the sunnah and therefore more rewarded by the ALMIGHTY, are in many respects the worst of the worst. In no way at all am I accusing the writer, or anyone involved in the sale of this product on this site as being guilty of this, but here we have what is a sincere article associated with a way too expensive price for a great Islamic product. Even though they have carefully chosen non Muslims customers to first try and then review their product for free, and then go on to say how brilliant it is with 5 stars!! Shocking hey..offer something to someone for free…and be amazed at the feedback lol. Even I would probably say “wow this is great” if I got a few free. But even then, would never recommend the price.

    I would like to add, everyone please always remember your salah. Ramadan is upon us. Islam is not a one month a year religion..it is a daily way of life to please the ALMIGHTY. Try to complete every salah on time..and it will bring you more peace and more barakah than more than 100 $20 miswaks!)

    Blessings to all.

    Assalam alaikum.

    • I’m the founder of Miswak Club.

      Thanks for your comment, but I’d like to clear up some things before anybody who reads your comment misunderstands our intention.

      1. Productive Muslim, in no way, asks anybody within this article to directly go to our site and purchase our miswaks.

      2. Yes, our miswaks are higher priced than what you get from your local Islamic store, but we can guarantee that our miswaks are much fresher than most of the miswaks you’ve tried in the U.S. This is because since we’re rather small, we’re able to import fresh miswaks whenever we’re about to run out of stock. This means that our miswaks are consistently fresh whenever someone makes an order.

      Also, regarding cost…

      It costs us money to print the packaging, hire staff to create the packaging, create the holders and buy premium-grade miswaks.

      It also costs us money to ship units from Pakistan to the U.S. There are also other associated costs such as paying a customs fee for importing our product.

      We then pay an inspection company to inspect all of our units to check for damages before we send it off to Amazon.

      Finally Amazon takes a huge chunk from each unit sold including a 15% commission as well as shipping and packaging costs.

      Believe me, if we were able to sell our miswak packages at a cheaper pricing point, we would. Our profit margins are very very small. But we make sure that our product is the most premium that you’ll find in the market.

      3. “Muslims making an unfair profit out of other muslims… are in many respects the worst of the worst”

      I find this pretty disrespectful. Can you show me where it says that we can’t provide quality goods and make a profit out of it?

      4. You mention in your comment that we provided our product for free, but can you show us where exactly you got that from? Some of or customers paid a discounted rate to test our product before it came out. If you go through the reviews, you’ll see that some of them did not like the product.

      For anybody reading this, I would like to apologize if I came off strong. I found this entire comment very offensive and wanted to clear up any misunderstandings.

  20. Alhamdulillah. A very good reminder. May Allah richly bless the writer and also make us act upon this Sunnah. Ameen

  21. Assalam o alikum;

    Masha Allah very informative article, May Allah bless on whole team ameen.

  22. Great article. I’ve heard the benefits of using siwak, but not as comprehensive as yours are. Thank u. Barakallah fiik

  23. Assalamu ‘aleykum wa rahmatuLlahi ta’ala wa barakatuh wa maghfiratuh wa ridwanuh,

    JazakumuLlahu khayran for your article and your reminder on this Sunnah. Using miswak is definitely a good way to improve mouth health and even more.

    Thank you Productive Muslim for helping people increase their qualities.

    What a great intention when we know that Our Beloved Prophet Muhammad SallaLlahu ‘aleyhi said in one of his hadiths : ” I have been sent to perfect good morals and conduct “.

    May Allah reward you with His Agreement.

    Wassalam,

    P.S : I hope we’ll soon get a topic about dates and its benefits. It should be an ingredient available at home the whole year.

  24. jazakumullah khyran for beneficial article..i want to know can we use indian lilac or neem tree twig for miswak??kindly reply

  25. As salamualaikum. .
    JazakAllah khair for this.
    I have been looking every where for tips on miswak.. really glad to see these here.

  26. I HAVE BEEN USING MISWAK FOR MORE THAN A YEAR. USUALLY BEFORE SLEEP.
    DURING MY VISIT FOR ORAL CHECKUP RECENTLY, MY DENTIST COMMENTED THAT MY GUMS ARE HEALTHY AND STRONG, ALHAMDULILLAH.

  27. The sole motivator for me using the miswak is that it is one of the easiest ways to please Allah SWT, follow Rasolullah SAW and the upon death the kalimah is easy on the persons tongue.

    Allah SWT grant us all guidance ameen.

  28. Our people are used to different kind of Tooth Paste but still the tooth-ache, tooth decay, weak gums and etc, etc, etc. remains unchanged. id ad, why do we wanted to go behind the different kind of TOOTH PASTE. Just lets try and see out of the 20 benefits mentioned above the MOST FORTUNATE AND APPROPRIATE IS AT THE TIME OF DEATH IT REMINDS THE KALIMAH which indicates that it helped us @ the correct time.

  29. the best article, thanks a lot for shared this article.
    Alhamdulilah, my family usually use this miswak before do prayer. Hopefully we can always use it because remember so many benefits to be gained from the use of the miswak.

    Jazzakillah :)

  30. Alhamdulillah a great reminder indeed.. Trying to use it before every Salah..Barak Allahu feeki sis

  31. Asalamu Alaikum,
    I’m from Suriname and I would like to know where I can find a miswak and what it looks like.

  32. This is a great article summarizing the benefits of miswak. I do want to point out something – it is sunnah to use it before meals. Miswak is to be used before meals and ample time needs to pass when using it after meals. When eating , parts of the teeth get softer. We miswak before to take the protective measures to prevent stains and build up. Doing it after rubs away the enamel since the teeth automatically get softer while and after eating
