Five items Nabi (sallallahu 'alayhi wa sallam) would always carry

Question

Is the following narration correct?

عن عائشة، قالت: خمس لم يكن رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم يدعهن في حضر ولا سفر: المرآة، والمكحلة، والمشط، والمدرى، والسواك


Answer

Imam Tabarani and Hafiz Khatib Al Baghdadi (rahimahumallah) have recorded this narration of Sayyidah 'Aaishah (radiyallahu 'anha).

(Al Mu'jamul Awsat, Hadith: 5238. Refer: Fathul Bari, Hadith: 5924)


Despite one narrator of this chain being declared weak, the narration is corroborated. Hafiz Ibn Hajar (rahimahullah) has cited several supporting narrations.

(Fathul Bari, Hadith: 5924)

 

The narration is therefore acceptable and may be quoted.

 

Translation

Sayyidah 'Aaishah (radiyallahu 'anha) says, 'Rasulullah (sallallahu 'alayhi wa sallam) never left five things, whether he was on travel or at home; a mirror, antimony [kuhl], a comb, a stick/metal comb [used for scratching] and a miswak.


And Allah Ta'ala Knows best.

Assalamu alaikum warahmatullah

What is meant by travelling here? I go to university daily so should I keep these things in my bag to fulfil the sunnah? Can you please help Aapa Ummitaalib.

Of more importance than the five things is to abstain from the haraam university.

 

The items should preferably be kept with one at all times.
