عن أبي موسى عن النبي صلى الله عليه و سلم قال: والمرأة إذا استعطرت فمرت بالمجلس فهي كذا وكذا يعني زانية (ترمذي رقم 2786)

Hadhrat Abu Musa (Radhiyallahu Anhu) reports that Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said: “The woman who applies perfume when leaving the home and passes by a group of strange men, (allowing them to get the fragrance of her body), is like an adulteress.”

Haircut1. It is permissible for men and women to dye the hair. However it is impermissible to use black dye to dye the hair.

عن ابن عباس قال قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم: يكون قوم يخضبون فى آخر الزمان بالسواد كحواصل الحمام لا يريحون رائحة الجنة. (ابو داود رقم 4214)

Hadhrat ibn Abbaas (Radhiyallahu Anhuma) reports that Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said: “A group will appear close to Qiyaamah who will dye their hair with black like the bellies of pigeons. They will not be blessed with the fragrance of Jannah (i.e. for some period they will undergo punishment in Jahannum and be deprived of Jannah).”

عن جابر بن عبد الله قال أتى بأبى قحافة يوم فتح مكة ورأسه ولحيته كالثغامة بياضا فقال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم غيروا هذا بشىء واجتنبوا السواد. (ابو داود رقم 4206)

Hadhrat Jaabir (Radhiyallahu Anhu) reports that Hadhrat Abu Quhaafa (Radhiyallahu Anhu) (the father of Hadhrat Abu Bakr [Radhiyallahu Anhu]) was brought before Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) on the occasion of the conquest of Makkah Mukarramah. His hair and beard was completely white which resembled the Thaghaama plant (a type of plant which its fruit and flowers were white in colour). Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said to him: “Change the colour of this (whiteness) through dying it with something, however abstain from black dye.”

Haircut1. It is Sunnah for one to oil the hair regularly.

عن أنس بن مالك قال : كان رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم يكثر دهن رأسه وتسريح لحيته ، ويكثر القناع حتى كأن ثوبه ثوب زيات (الشمائل للترمذي رقم 33)

Hadhrat Anas (Radhiyallahu Anhu) reports that Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) would regularly oil his mubaarak hair and comb his mubaarak beard, and he would often wear a cloth (beneath his turban when he applied oil to prevent the oil from soiling the turban). (Due to the excessive oil that Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) would apply to his mubaarak head), the cloth beneath his turban resembled the cloth of an oil merchant.

Haircut1. The pubic hair and the hair under the armpits should preferably be shaved once a week. It is better and more rewarding to remove the unwanted hair on the day of Jumuah. If this is not possible, then one can remove the hair every second or third week. However, it is makrooh-e-tahrimi (impermissible) to leave it for more than forty days. 

عن عائشة قالت قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم عشر من الفطرة قص الشارب وإعفاء اللحية والسواك والاستنشاق بالماء وقص الأظفار وغسل البراجم ونتف الإبط وحلق العانة وانتقاص الماء يعنى الاستنجاء بالماء (سنن أبي داود رقم 53)

Hadhrat A'isha (Radiyallahu Anha) reports that Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said: "Ten actions are from among the pure and unadulterated way (i.e. the Sunnah which was practised by all the Ambiyaa of the past); trimming the moustache, lengthening the beard, using the Miswaak, rinsing the nose with water, clipping the nails, washing in between the fingers and joints of the body (the areas that perspire), plucking the hair under the armpits, removing the pubic hair and making istinjaa with water (at the time of relieving oneself)".

وعن أنس قال: وقت لنا في قص الشارب وتقليم الأظفار ونتف الإبط وحلق العانة أن لا تترك أكثر من أربعين ليلة. (مسلم رقم 258)

Hadhrat Anas (Radhiyallahu Anhu) reports: In regard to trimming the moustache, clipping the nails, plucking the hair of the underarms and the shaving of the private areas, a time limit was fixed for us that it should not be left longer than forty days.
