I've read in various ahadith that Prophet Muhammad PBUH used oil in his head. Does anyone know which oil he used? By "which", I mean like coconut oil, argan oil, macadamia oil, almond oil etc.


Nabi Muhammed (SAW) favourite condiments,honey,olive oil and salt and vinegar (References only for oil) First references from Holy Quran:

Surah 6. Al-An‘âm, Verse. # 99: And out of the datepalm and its spathe come forth clusters of dates hanging low and near and gardens of grapes, olive and pomegranates, each similar (in kind) yet different (in variety and taste). Look at their fruits when they begin to bear and the ripeness thereof. Verily! In these things there are signs for people who believe.

Surah 16. An-Nahl, Verse. # 11: “With it He causes to grow for you the crops, the olives, the date-palms,the grapes and every kind of fruit. Verily! In this is indeed an evident proof and a manifest sign for people who give thought”.

Now from Hadith:

Hazrat Abu huraira (R.A.) narrated that Rasullullah (Sallallaho Alayhi Wasallam) said “Eat the olive oil and massage it over your bodies since it is a holy (mubarak) tree.”

Hazrat Alqama Bin Amir (R.A) narrates that Prophet (Sallallaho Alayhi Wasallam) said, “There is olive oil for you, eat it, massage over your body, since it is effective in Heamorrhoids (Piles).”

Khalid Bin Saad (R.A.) narrates, “I came to Madinah with Ghalib Bin Al Jabr. Ghalib became ill during the journey. Ibn Abi Ateeq came to see him and told a narration from Hazrat Aisha(R.A.) that the Prophet (Sallallaho Alayhi Wasallam) told about the cure in Kalonji. We crushed a few seeds of Kalonji and mixed it with olive oil and dropped in both nostrils, after which Ghalib became healthy.”
