I have read that after Sayyidah ‘Aaishah (radiyallahu ‘anha) softened the miswak with her mouth and gave it to Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) to use during his final illness, she said “From all the blessed wives of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam), I am the only one who had the honour of having had her saliva touch the blessed mouth of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam)”
