This should solve everyone's problem:

The Prophet of Islam has said: "Cleanliness is half of your faith"

Is that proof enough? What kind of topic are you guys debating on. Immature, I swear. I'm Muslim, and I take a shower everyday. Unbelievable, guys. Obviously, Mr. "Anti-Jihad", you've lived with Muslims that didn't practice a central rule in Islam. Take it from a Muslim -- you should shower everyday.

Let me try to solve this.

Cleanliness is a relative term. A person taking a bath every day can be less clean compared to someone who takes bath 3 times a day. And another person who takes a bath once a month will be more clean than the one who takes a bath once a year.

Now there are religious requirements for cleaning and I find Muslim requirements to be much most stringent on cleaning themselves compared to, for example, Hindus and Christians.

Muslim is REQUIRED to take bath on these occasions:

- After he/she has sex with his wife/husband
- After she completes her periods
- On Friday & Other Such Occasions
- May be a few others

Compared to this, I believe there is no religious REQUIREMENT in Hinduism of Christianity. When I say REQUIREMENT I mean you can't pray without taking a bath. And praying is a must 5 times a day.

There are certain practices which differentiate one from the other. I have traveled extensively, including UK, USA, Germany, Middle East and Pakistan. I have found that in non-Muslim countries (especially western) they use Toilet Papers in the Toilets and there is no water in side the Toilet. Everyone knows that Toilet Paper can clean you to a certain extent. In Muslim countries I have found that people use water in addition to Toilet paper to wash their dirty parts. That means that not a small portion of their shit remains attached to their bodies compared to non-Muslims. And remember - this is a religious requirement which does not exist in Christianity and Hinduism. In fact Hinduism is much more dirty compared to any religion. They drink Urine (in fact their Prime Minister admitted that publicly) and do many other things that a normal human being can't even think about.

In summary Muslims are REQUIRED to clean their shit (the main source of smell) with water when they go to Toilet which is not required in other religions. This is added by practice of regular bath (remember Muslims introduced Baths & Hammams in Europe). Hence Muslims smell much nicer compared to others.

Hope that helps.

What a bunch of sick, demented, poor excuses for human beings
Innocent People are dying at the hands of murderers as we speak.It would seem that this would be the issue to give your energies to, but you'd rather spew about peoples hygiene, unbelievable. Some of you really are animals, whole heartedly.

Shame on all of you, who asking such stupid childish questions.

In the civilized world, we don't need religion to force us to keep ourselves clean. Apparently only Muslims need a fatwa to motivate them to wash.

No that is not the case.

All I am saying is that these practices were introduced as a REQUIREMENT when these was no requirement of being 'that clean' in the society. Muslims built on this and west learned from Muslims. Though they still couldn't achieve that level of cleanliness - may be they were too lazy. Had that been a religious requirement they would have kept themselves clean with water.

Don't you agree that water cleans you in a much better manner compared to toilet paper? That is a fact that you can't deny.

So become a Muslim. You will have to wash yourself 5 times a day -or more! And you will smell much nicer. I assure you.

Son..it is not that it is being questioned but the question why Allah busy himself with this for TURD muslims. Did TURD suffer from some OCD for cleanliness Allah had to help him out with HADITH or FATWA.

Crusader Princess: You didn't respond to my post. I repeat my very simple question:
Isn't using just the Toilet Paper (which non-Muslim 'civilized' western countries use) for cleaning, leaves traces of dirty stuff behind with your body causing stink?
And isn't using Water (which Muslims use) for cleaning, cleans all traces of dirty stuff from the body leaving you smell good and nice?
There is no harm in accepting the truth!!!

Yes, I did and I have seen that. But I am talking about general practice in your culture. I have visited office of multinationals in London, public places and airport in the US and they are missing. These gadgets are beyond reach for 99.9% of people.

Even that one in like turning back to Muslim's practice of cleaning, i.e. Water instead of TP - which Muslims are doing for centuries!

You Islam hater nutjobs make up all kinds of nonsense against muslims hey.

As a matter of fact, Muslims shower regularly. They have to, or they wont be religiously clean enough to enter a mosque or read the Quran. There's actually a 4 to 13 step procedure about how to have a bath.

And Muslims only take showers. They almost never have a bath. Bathing in a tub of water isn't religiously sufficient. Muslims are instructed to bathe in running water only. No laying in a tub in your own filth like many westerners do.

And in the Golden age, muslims were pioneers of perfume manufacture, and up till today manufacture highly potent non alcoholic perfume. Much of the industrial techniques such as distillation and filtration have been developed from middle eastern perfume distillation.

In fact, if you go to Saudi Arabia you will find this everywhere, in homes as well as in the offices.

Uh-huh. I suppose your hero Osama bin Laden hasn't been able to pray for years, then, since there can't be adequate facilities in the cave he's living in to take a sharia-compliant shower. He must be smelling pretty ripe by now.

Osama bin laden is the hero of the terrorists. Not muslims.
