Burning Incense Sticks

Q: Is there any prohibition on the burning of incense sticks.

A. Burning of incense sticks is permissible as long as there is no wrong belief or superstition attached to it. Some believe that it has the power to drive away evil forces and bring blessings. To have such beliefs is not permissible. The main purpose for using these sticks is to give the area a fragrant and pleasant smell

Allah Ta’aala knows best.
