Using perfume and performing Salaah

Q: While using perfume, will namaz not be accepted? If this is true then what will happen with our past namaz because I use perfume and spray every time and offer prayer in it?


A: If the perfume does not contain anything impure or impermissible in Shari’ah, it is permissible to use it and the Salaah will be valid.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
