Sunnah of the Month - November 2013 - Applying Kuhl (surma)


I was thinking of picking a sunnah and making that the sunnah of the month and using the entire month to bring it into practice in our lives forever insha'Allah. The intention is to earn the pleasure of Allah swt by slowly bringing the complete sunnah of the Holy Prophet salallaho alayhi wa sallam into our lives and that as long as we live we will continue to add more and more sunnah to our practice and we will continue to refine our practice insha'Allah, Allah swt make it easy, ameen.

Applying surma to the eyes is an established sunnah of the Holy Prophet salallaho alayhi wa sallam but today this sunnah practice like others has been forgotten and long lost. Most people dont know about it and many of those who know dont know the right time and the correct masnoon manner, the sunnah manner, of applying surma. Even among "religious" people the sunnah of applying surma before sleeping is missing. We should aim to revive this sunnah in practice insha'Allah.

A hadith narrated by Hazrath Abdullah bin Abbas رضي الله عنه is mentioned in Shamail e Kubra volume 1 on page 441 mentioning that before going to sleep the Holy Prophet salallaho alayhi wa sallam would apply kohl of ithmad three times in each eye.

- Kohl (surma) is of many kinds and Ithmid surma is the best to use, it is reddish black in color.
- It is sunnah to apply surma in the eyes before going to sleep at night.
- It is sunnah to apply surma three times in each eye before going to sleep.

On the following page another hadith is quoted this time by Hazrath Anas رضي الله عنه mentioning that the Holy Prophet salallaho alayhi wa sallam would apply surma in odd number manner.

The Holy Prophet salallaho alayhi wa sallam applied surma using any of the following three ways, all three ways are correct:

- Surma can be applied three times in each eye starting first with the right eye then left eye.
- Surma can be applied three times first in the right eye and then two in left eye - this is the best way to apply surma.
- Surma can be applied first two times in each eye then one time in each eye.

It comes in a hadith narrated by Hazrath Abdullah bin Abbas رضي الله عنه that the Holy Prophet salallaho alayhi wa sallam had a container in which he kept surma which he would apply at bedtime three times in each eye.

- Keeping a container of surma is a sunnah.

The Mother of the Believers Siddiqa Aisha رضي الله عنه narrates that 5 things the Holy Prophet salallaho alayhi wa sallam had along with him whether he was at home or in travel; (1) a mirror, (2) container of surma, (3) a comb, (4) oil, (5) miswak.

- The above 5 things should be kept at home and in travel with the intention of sunnah and used in the manner of sunnah, they should be used how the Holy Prophet salallaho alayhi wa sallam used them.

At least make an intention in the heart to act on this great sunnah of the Holy Prophet salallaho alayhi wa sallam.

Sunnah of the Month for December is to recite Surah Mulk before sleeping. I will provide pertinent info from sunnah seerah about this insha'Allah.

The above is informative, but why Gregorian months and not Islamic months?

I have a thread called Islamic months with some great details too.

May Allah سبحانه وتعالى grant us the ability to memorize the Quran, if not the whole Quran at least the ability to memorize that which will save and protect us in the grave إن شاء الله
