A man forgot to use Miswak (tooth-cleansing stick) before Salah (Prayer). Is it permissible to use it during it?
All Praise be to Allah Alone and peace and blessings be upon His Messenger, his family, and Companions.
It is not permissible for a person to use Miswak during Salah whether he did not use it intentionally or forgetfully beforehand. However, it is permissible to use Miswak before Takbir (saying: "Allahu Akbar [Allah is the Greatest]" upon starting the Prayer).May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
