Cleanliness

by M J Farah

Indeed Allah loves those who repent and those who keep clean.(Suratul Baqarah, Verse 222)

Cleanliness is very important aspect of Islam. According to a hadeeth, Rasoolillah(sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said,”Cleanliness is half of Imaan[faith].” (Mishkaat) As Muslims, we should therefore pay attention to the following:

1- Cleanliness of the Mind and the heart

Muslims are duty-bound to perform good deeds and have pure thoughts. We should not have evil thoughts, not , nor should we harm others. Lies and falsehood are forms of filth and impurity.

All types of sin and evil have a bad effect on the soul.

2- Cleanliness in our homes and surroundings

Muslim homes should be kept clean and taahir (pure) at all times. Dropping litter any where other then in a litter pin is wrong and should be avoided.

3- Cleanliness in places of worship

Masaajid must be kept clean and perfumed.

4- Cleanliness of our bodies and clothing

AS Muslims, we should not allow any form of impurity or dirt to gather or remain on our bodies or chothing.
