Islamic Hygiene

* Heard about the blessings of zam-zam water? Heard about the blessings of Islamic medicine like camel urine etc? Heard about Islamic discoveries? You must have, because Muhammad worshipers discovered America, don’t you know?

* Today we will educate you about Islamic hygiene

* hope you’re sitting down:

Many visitors to Islamic Paradises are often taken aback when they observe the horrifying hygienic condition in these countries, either in public places, or in the privacy of its Islamic citizens. For example, in Islamic countries such as Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sudan, Nigeria, Mauritania…and so on, people often spit anywhere they like; urinate and defecate in public places, whenever opportunity permits, oblivious to the fact that human saliva and excrement are potential carriers of deadly germs and viruses. In many Islamic Paradises, public places, such as parks, recreation centres, sports facilities etc., are often littered with obnoxious objects including human faeces. The open sewers on both sides of the road, the raw sewage infested railway tracks, the dirt, and litter in uncultivated or unoccupied spaces often produce revulsion to any visitors who dare to experience such horrible unhygienic conditions in many Islamic Paradises.

Has Islam anything to do with such a terrible health hazard? Or is this due to poverty?

Let us examine the sources of Islam to gauge the truth. The readers will note that many unhygienic practices followed in such Islamic Paradises (Dar al Islam) emanate directly from the practices of Muhammad as described in a number of ahadith (Muhammad’s act or sunna). These ahadith tell us that Muhammad and his companions, including his wives, lived in terrible unhygienic conditions. They had very little regard for a healthy, clean and disease free environment. They were inured to the dirty, unclean, and often unhealthy practices of the desert Bedouins.

Here are three ahadith to learn about the pathetic personal hygiene of Muhammad and his followers:

Some jihadist’s lice fell from their heads on their faces…(Sahih Bukhari, 5.59.503)

Sahih Bukhari, Volume 5, Book 59, Number 503
Narrated Kab bin Ujra:
The Prophet came to me at the time of Al-Hudaibiya Pledge while lice were falling on my face. He said, “Are the lice of your head troubling you?” I said, “Yes.” He said, “Shave your head and fast for three days, or feed six poor persons, or slaughter a sheep as sacrifice.” (The sub-narrator, Aiyub said, “I do not know with which of these three options he started.”)

Muhammad visited Umm Haram and she looked for lice in his head…(Sahih Bukhari, 9.87.130)

Sahih Bukhari, Volume 9, Book 87, Number 130:
Narrated Anas bin Malik:
Allah’s Apostle used to visit Um Haram bint Milhan she was the wife of ‘Ubada bin As-Samit. One day the Prophet visited her and she provided him with food and started looking for lice in his head. Then Allah’s Apostle slept and afterwards woke up smiling.

Muhammad’s companions were manual labourers; they had stinky body odour…(Sahih Bukhari 3.34.285)

Sahih Bukhari, Volume 3, Book 34, Number 285:
Narrated Aisha:
The companions of Allah’s Apostle used to practise manual labor, so their sweat used to smell, and they were advised to take a bath.

No wonder then, that, today, most of Muhammad’s ardent followers carry on with his tradition or Sunna—because it is compulsory for every Muslim to emulate Muhammad in all aspects, including his personal hygiene habits (see verses 3:31, 3:132, 4:13, 33:21, 33:36, and 68:4).

Muhammad’s Obsession with Saliva, Dirt, and Polluted Water

To prove his divinity and supernatural power Muhammad often resorted to horrid practices. Such practices involved asking people to use the water he had polluted through ablution, bath, or mouthwash, or even by spitting on it.

Sahih Bukhari (1.4.187) sates that people used to collect the leftover water after Muhammad’s ablution. He asked people to drink the water from the tumbler on which he had washed his hands, and threw a mouthful of water in it.

To prove his divine authority, Muhammad even let a sick boy drink the leftover water after he had performed ablution (Sahih Bukhari, 1.4.189). Another boy drank the leftover water/milk that Muhammad had drunk (Sahih Bukhari, 3.40.541, 554).

One grotesque unhygienic practice of Muhammad was the use of his saliva to influence illiterate, unformed believers to his claim of possession of supernatural power. In earlier episodes we already witnessed many examples of this extremely unhygienic practice. Here are a few more samples of Muhammad’s fixation with his spittle.

Muhammad used his saliva to soften a date, and then gave it to an infant to suck… (Sahih Bukhari, 25.5340, 5341, 5345)

When Anas’s son was born Muhammad fed him with dates mixed with his (Muhammad’s) saliva and gave him the name Abdullah… (Sahih Bukhari, 31.6013)

Muhammad’s saliva is good for children. He used to spit into the mouth of suckling children, and his saliva would satisfy them until nightfall… (Ash Shifa, p.184)

If a baby sucked Muhammad’s tongue, the baby became quiet… (Ash Shifa, p.184)

One thought on “Islamic Hygiene”

  1. Mo may have had lice, but at least his underwear was stain free thanks to the heroic efforts of Aisha.

    This makes me wonder where exactly the Black Plague originated from. With all the filth and vermin described in Mo’s time still common today in his wonderful ummah I wouldn’t be surprised at all if the ummah was the source.
