Wearing perfume

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Muftisays.com
In question #2174 a person has asked about using perfumes with alcohols. You had said that perfume with a certain type of alcohol is permissible but I have heard that women are not allowed to wear perfumes at all. Is this true?

Answer
Bismillah

Al-jawab billahi at-taufeeq (the answer with Allah’s guidance)

It is strictly forbidden for women wearing perfume when they go out.

Narrated Abu Musa (RadhiyAllahu Anhu):

The Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said: If a woman uses perfume and passes the people so that they may get its odour, she is so-and-so, meaning severe remarks. (Abu Dawud, Chapter: combing the hair)

Narrated Abu Hurayrah (RadhiyAllahu Anhu):

A woman met him and he found the odour of perfume in her. Her clothes were fluttering in the air. He said: O maid-servant of the Almighty, are you coming from the mosque? She replied: Yes. He said: For it did you use perfume? She replied: Yes. He said: I heard my beloved AbulQasim (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) say: The prayer of a woman who uses perfume for this mosque is not accepted until she returns and takes a bath like that of sexual defilement (perfectly). (Abu Dawud, Chapter: combing the hair)

Narrated Abu Hurayrah (RadhiyAllahu Anhu):

The Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said: If a woman fumigates herself with perfume, she must not attend the night prayer with us. Ibn Nufayl said: Isha’ means night prayer. (Abu Dawud, Chapter: combing the hair)

And Only Allah Ta’ala Knows Best.
