Question


Assalamu alaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakaatuh


Please can you specify which type of a comb the Prophet  (saw) used… was it made out of wood? I have heard it was a wooden comb however I cannot seem to find facts, they said wooden comb because it stimulates the brain cells too?


 


بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيْم


In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful

Anas reports: “As the Prophet was about to go to bed at night, his water for ablution, tooth stick and comb were placed for him. When he got up at night, he would clean his teeth with the tooth stick, perform his ablution and comb his hair. I have seen God’s messenger using a comb made of ivory.” (Related by Abu Al-Shaykh.)


 


Al-Zuhri said: ‘The best of this Ummah used to comb their hair with elephant bone made combs’.


 


Only Allah knows best.
