Applying the best fragrance available before entering the state of Ihram

Question

Is this narration reliable?

Sayyidah ‘Aaishah (radiyallahu ‘anha) reported: “I applied the best available perfume I could find to Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) before he entered upon the state of ihram, then he put on the ihram”

 

Answer

Imam Muslim (rahimahullah) has recorded this Hadith in his Sahih. The Hadith is therefore authentic.

(Sahih Muslim, Hadith: 1189. Also see: Sahih Bukhari, Hadith: 1539, 1754 and 5928)

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
