  • Perfume use question

    Salam alikum,


    I have a question in my mind for a moment now.
    Are body sprays, shower gels etc.. considered as perfume as they smell good? If a man accidentally smell it (of course i would not know) am i accountable for it?
    I know there is a hadith about perfume and adulteress thing i don't remember exactly, is intention taken into account or not?

    :wswrwb:

    if a woman wants to go out of her house, she must avoid wearing perfume that has a strong fragrance, if she is going to pass by groups of men or is in a place where she will mix with them. This ruling does not apply only to one kind of perfume and not another; rather what counts here is whether the fragrance can be smelt by any man.

    Whatever comes under the same heading as using fragrance, such as using soap or shampoo that has a strong and lasting smell that remains after using it, comes under the same ruling. It is not permissible for her to use any of those things if she is going out of her house or mixing with men.

    in regards to body sprays i'd say, from a mans perspective, that they would be considered perfume... some of them are really strong. Allah know best though.

      Thank you for your answer so intention is useless there then? Isn't "strong fragrance" a relative notion although? I am not talking about emptying the bottle of course, i don't use perfume itself, only body spray to hide actually the wrong ones or when it smells horrible in public transports especially in summer.
      It is written women can't even wash with a shampoo that smells or shower gel that is kind of a lot we don't use horrible smell to clean ourselves i don't get this one for instance

          Your right here sister and if you think a fragrance is too strong you should avoid it. I don't think the purpose of the ruling is to have sisters smelling bad, its purpose is to prevent unnecessary attention from non-mahrams... so make the effort to find body sprays with as little fragrance as possible because you will be judged on your intentions. Insha'Allah a sister will be able to recommend appropriate body sprays

            you'd be surprised. i've realised impulse is the biggest offender... subhan'Allah, i can barely breathe around that stuff
