Q: I would like to know the masnoon way of doing miswaak. Should it be right to left in one go which would be the “length” of the mouth and the “breadth” of the teeth or is it to be done in an up down motion on each tooth starting with the tooth on top on the right which would then be the “length” of the teeth and the “breadth” of the mouth?
A: Miswaak will be made across the teeth i.e. from the right of the mouth moving to the left.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
