Is there any Hadith that states Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) used henna on a wound?
Yes, Imam Tirmidhi (rahimahullah) has recorded the following Hadith:
Sayyidah Salma (radiyallahu ‘anha), the servant of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) reported: “When Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) had a wound [caused by a sword/knife] or a cut [caused by stone/thorn], he ordered me to apply henna on it.”
(Sunan Tirmidhi, Hadith: 2054. Refer: Tuhfatul Ahwadhi, Hadith: 2054)
The wording in Sunan Ibn Majah is as follows:
Sayyidah Salma, the freed slave of Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) reported: “When Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) was afflicted with a wound or thorn he applied henna to it.”
(Sunan Ibn Majah, Hadith: 3502)
And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
