Burning lobaan before moving into a new house

Q: Is it necessary to burn lobaan before moving into a new house and what is the significance in Islam of burning lobaan?

Bismillaah

A:

No.

To have a good fragrance around the home is recommended and more especially in a place where namaaz, zikr and Qur’aan Shareef tilaawat are offered .

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