ATTAR IN THE LIGHT OF THE HOLY QURAN


Assalam oalaikum,

Etymologically speaking, the word attar or ittar finds its origin from an Arabic word, which means aroma.  This is believed to be derived from a Persian word ‘atr’ which means fragrance.

The history of ittar is quite ancient as it has been popular in the Middle East, India and Iran since thousands of years.
Ittar can be described as the most natural, alcohol-free fragrances in the world. The divine scents of ittar oil are obtained from the natural aromatic plants through a process of condensing vapors directly into a sandalwood oil base.

The land of Arabia has been traditionally famous for its fragrances and these have been mentioned in the Holy Quran too.
Allah (swt) shall grant the believers in Heaven with “the choicest sealed wine, whose seal is musk-mixed with Tasnim”. (TMQ-Surat-al-Mutaffifin, verse 25-27).
This verse reflects the importance ittar is Islam.
The musk which finds its mention in the Holy Quran is used by hakims to prepare traditional medicines. Spiritual healers also use musk for spiritual as well as physical healing.

In his book, ‘Natural healing with the medicine of the Prophet’ (saw), the scholar, sufi and scientist, Ibn-Qayyim –al Jawaziyah has described musk as the king of all the perfumes and the most precious perfume. He states in his book that musk pleases the spirit, it strengthens the body’s internal organs, it is useful for the elderly during winters; it helps to abate irregular heart beats and also heals snake bites.
The scientific development in today’s modern world has helped to establish the medicinal as well as spiritual benefits of ittar. Ittar is akin to a fuel for the soul which helps the body to generate different kinds of energies.
No doubt ittars hold so much importance in Islam.
