عن عائشة -رضي الله عنها-: أن النبي -صلى الله عليه وسلم- قال: «السِّواك مَطْهَرَةٌ للْفَم مَرْضَاةٌ لِلرَّبِّ».
[صحيح.] - [رواه النسائي وأحمد والدارمي.]
المزيــد ...

‘Ā’ishah (may Allah be pleased with her) reported that the Prophet (may Allah's peace and blessings be upon him) said: "The tooth-stick cleans the mouth and pleases the Lord."
[Sahih/Authentic] - [An-Nasaa’i - Ahmad - Ad-Daarimi]

Explanation

The tooth-stick cleans the mouth from dirt, foul odors and other harmful things. The Sunnah practice of using the tooth-stick is achieved by brushing with anything that cleans the teeth, such as the toothbrush and toothpaste, and any other cleaner. "Pleases the Lord" means that brushing the teeth is one of the reasons for Allah's being pleased with a slave. Using the tooth-stick has many benefits, including that it gives a pleasant smell to the mouth, firms the gums, sharpens the eyesight, removes phlegm, conforms to the Sunnah, delights the angels, pleases the Lord, increases good deeds, and heals the stomach.
