Dear brothers and sisters please excuse me for I am new to the forum and seek guidance in order to fulfill the sunnahs of our beloved prophet pbuh and gain mercy from Allah.
I am of an indian origin and it is usual custom for us to cook curry with onions and garlic. The Onions and garlic are usually fried until soft and vegetables, meat or fish are then added. We do not eat raw onions except as salad. My worry is in regards to the following Hadith regarding cleanliness:
"Whoever eats onions, garlic or leeks should not approach our mosque, because whatever offends the sons of Adam may offend the angels.” (Muslim).
The Prophet (pbuh) banned those who had eaten these pungent vegetables from coming anywhere near the mosque, lest the people and the angels be offended by their bad breath, but these smells pale into insignificance beside the stench of dirty clothes, filthy socks, unwashed bodies and unclean mouths that emanates from some careless and unkempt individuals who offend others in any gathering.
MY WORRY IS AM I AMONG THE ONES WHO THE PROPHET IS ADDRESSING THIS TO AS ONION AND GARLIC ARE USED IN PRETTY MUCH EVERYTHING NOWADAYS
