Q 3: Is it Haram (prohibited) or Makruh (disliked) to eat onions on a Friday? Is it sinful
to eat onions on Friday
and then use mint or toothpaste to remove the smell? Is it only forbidden (Part No. 22; Page No. 258
It is Makruh to eat raw onions due to their offensive smell, as when you go to the Masjid (mosque) and other public gathering places you talk to people. This applies to Friday, as well as any other day. If the onion is cooked, there is no harm in eating it, as its smell disappears. It is confirmed in a Hadith that the Prophet (peace be upon him) said,
"Anyone who eats garlic or onion should not approach our Masjid."
So anyone who eats garlic or onions and then removes the smell by any means, it is not sinful to then mix with other people in the Masjid or good gatherings.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
