Perfume for men.
Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,
As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
Assalam-o-alaikum,regarding your answer of question no.2507,precisely you want to convey that both men and women have diffrent attractions naturaly,men are more likely to get attracted to perfumes.I personaly have seen many girls in the college who got attracted to boys,only because they smells good.And now is it ok for boys to use perfumes in public places?

Perfume for men
In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 24 Surah Noor verses 30-31:
30 Say to the believing men that they should lower their gaze and guard their modesty: that will make for greater purity for them: and Allah is well acquainted with all that they do.
31 And say to the believing women that they should lower their gaze and guard their modesty; that they should not display their beauty and ornaments except what (must ordinarily) appear thereof
Islam guides both the men and women to guard their modesty..and Islam does not propagate a society where non-mehram men and women are constantly in the face of or interact with each other without an absolutely genuine reason or cause.
Al-Tirmidhi Hadith 4443 Narrated by Abu Hurayrah
Allah's Messenger (saws) said, "The perfume for men is that whose odour is apparent but whose colour is hidden, and the perfume for women is that whose colour is apparent but whose odour is hidden.
Although it is permissible in Shariah for the men to apply perfume in public, but if their intention is seek to attract the attention of womenthen that indeed would be against the guidance of Islam.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
Your brother and well wisher in Islam,
