Islam is a religion much more than mere religious teachings and principles. It is in fact a complete code of life that not only teaches people about religious obligations, but offers them a complete set of instructions to live their lives accordingly.
Importance Of Cleanliness In Islam
Among all other things it teaches, comes cleanliness and hygiene. Allah Almighty is the cleanest of clean and purest of the pure, also evident from His direct words on different places in the book of Quran, such as:
At-Taubah [9:108] Never stand you therein. Verily, the mosque whose foundation was laid from the first day on piety is more worthy that you stand therein (to pray). In it are men who love to clean and to purify themselves. And Allâh loves those who make themselves clean and pure (i.e. who clean their private parts with dust [which has the cleansing properties of soap] and water from urine and stools, after answering the call of nature].
This verse is a proof more than enough how particular Allah Almighty and Islam is about cleanliness and purification. Not only it hints that Allah likes clean and pure people, but it also states how to do that in significant detail.
Physical As Well As Spiritual Consequences Of Not Maintaining Cleanliness
Unluckily, Muslims as followers of the true religion of God have strayed greatly from the true teachings of Allah Almighty and His religion. Just have a look at the situation of cleanliness in most of the Islamic countries of the world and you will immediately realize them lacking greatly as compared to majority of the western societies where cleanliness is their top most priority.
This unfortunate negligence from Quran teaching not only inflicts spiritual deterioration to Muslims, but also results in many illnesses and diseases. One current example is of “Dengue fever”, an infection that is wracking havoc currently in Pakistan. Among other reasons, one of the major reasons for its outbreak is lack of cleanliness in the surroundings.
Dengue fever is basically an infectious disease for which Aedes aegypti mosquito is responsible. There are four different types of dengue viruses that can be spread through this mosquito. It is also referred as “break-bone fever”, because sometimes it inflicts pain so severe in your joints and bones that it gives the feeling that bones are being crushed and broken.
Symptoms Of Dengue Fever
Constantly high fever (up to 104°F to 105°F)
Severe pain in joints and bones
Conventional Treatment Of Dengue Fever
Medical experts communicate that there exists no specific treatment of Dengue Fever as yet, but only the treatment of symptoms, in addition to preventive measures to assure Dengue does not break out like an epidemic, for which nothing proves more effective other than keeping yourself and your surroundings clean.
