The eternally blessed Messenger of Allah has highly commended the use of Miswak
( to clean the teeth).
Ayesh (May Allah be pleased with her) has related that the blessed Messenger of ALLAH has said:
“Miswak is a means of cleaning the mouth and of earning Divine pleasure ” (Sunan Nisai)
Use of Miswak has been lauded in countless ahadith and
it is among the favorite sunnah of the blessed Messenger of Allah Almighty.
It has an advantage in this life and in the after-life too!
It is a simple and easy task which can add to our Merits.
Sunnah No,1: Using Miswak (Toothstick) while making ‘wudu'(ablution) is Sunnah.
Sunnah No,2: the Miswak (Toothstick) should be no longer than around nine inches and no thicker than a finger. (Bahrr-ur-Raqiq).
