Cleanliness

Cleanliness

The foremost lesson of Islam is cleanliness or purity. There are a number of verses in the Holy Quran that highlight the importance of cleanliness such as:“Truly, Allah loves those who turn to Him constantly and He loves those who keep themselves pure and clean.” [Al Baqarah 2:222]. In a Hadith, the Prophet (peace be upon him) said: “Cleanliness is half of faith.” [Sahih Muslim Book 2, Number 0432].

Our deen – Islam – places great emphasis on cleanliness. As far as physical cleanliness is concerned, it is of two types. One is related to the human body and the other is related to the environment, i.e. water, home , roads, public places etc. Apart from physical cleanliness, Islam also lays emphasizes on spiritual cleanliness. Spiritual cleanliness implies that one should be free of polytheism, hypocrisy and ill manners, love of wealth, love of fame and other evil desires.
