Well, the Christians have a saying 'Cleanliness is next to Godliness'.
Orange FlowerTHIRD I WANT TO TELL EVERY BODY HERE THAT I WAS SAYED THE MUSLIM SHOULD WASH FIVE TIME A DAY BEFORE PRAYING BECAUSE HE /SHE PRAY FOR GOD AND MUST BE CLEAN .BUT IF HE/SHE CAN NOT FIND WATER OR WATER IS SCARCE HE/SHE MAKE (AFOR) WITHOUT WATER ( EXCUSE ME I CAN NOT DESCRIBE HOW MAKE AFOR THIS BECAUSE I DO NOT SPEAK ENGLISH VERY WELL ) I WANT ANY MUSLIM DESCRIBE IT PLEASE .
I have never heard "afor" but i suppose that it is what we name as teyemmüm in Turkish,Orangeflower.

If a Muslim lacks water or cant find a way to have aptes(all the stages of cleaning,washing hands,face,legs,arms..) there is another way which is named as "tayammum". The only thing for "tayammum" is clean earth.

The stages are as followed

1)Intention for tayammum. 2)Strike your palms on clean earth and shake off the excess wiping between the fingers your hand. 3)Then wipe your face. 4) Again strike your palms on the clean earth and wipe your right arm with your left hand and then wipe your left arm with your right hand.

NylaSecondly,it's not good for your skin to wash so many times a day! Emotion: indifferent
I read in a science magazine that washing the body regularly is very healthy. It was proved that our body has a electrical equilibrum which is related with our health very closely.This equilibrum depends on climates,psychologic conditions,even the clothes that we wear and so on.For example,this electrical load that our body bear, increases four times when we are in anger. Especially , according to the photographs which is taken by infrared cameras, the electrical burden of our body soars 12 times after having sexual relationship and it hinders the oxygen contact of our body cells with the outside world.(By the way,having sexual relationship is one of the conditions that is required to have gusl aptes(a complete aptes of washing whole body) in Islam). Therefore water depolarize our body's electrical load and relax us.And it also enable our body cells to absorb more oxygen. Therefore, cleaning our body is very crucial for our health and psychology(by all accounts,our psychology is in correlation with our body's electrical burden) regardless of our religion.
Jhumjhum1)In the time of Mohammad as far as I know that he had to lead sometimes a nomadic life and used to fight against different clans .If it is true, in countries full of deserts like Arab was sufficient water available everywhere at that time?

"tayammum" is another way, as i have mentioned.
Jhumjhum2)What do you people do in winter?Do you follow the same rule?
yes:)
Jhumjhum3)Don't you have poor people in your country who do not have provision for warm water in winter at any time of the day/night?
in every mosque there are places to have aptes but the water is not always warm Emotion: smile
JhumjhumI have some informations for you because I think you are not sufficiently aware of the rest of the world.
In countries like India ,Pakistan and Afganistan etc. there are some places where water is very scarce.People can hardly manage to provide water for cooking and drinking. So these five times washing a day is a luxury for them ,whatever religion they belong it does not matter.
tayammum is the answer again.but if the water is really scarce. because you dont need much water to have aptes and Islam always forbids extravagance.
JhumjhumSo I think people have to change with time and place.There cannot be rigid rules..
Actually , it is a very different point of view.Because as far as i am concerned. the rules of God doesnt depend on time,place,era or whatsoever. Islam has already many conveniences under different cases.

P.S this is my 300. post Emotion: stick out tongue

I use to have a shower everyday,and sometimes twice a day.I think this can be considered "regularly" and "healthy". Emotion: big smile I think also that wash yourself too much is not healthy,like all things that are exagerated!

LOL,Nyla it may even impair your health. You know, you may catch cold after bathing twice a day Emotion: smile

JhumjhumOrange Flower I have some questions.
1)In the time of Mohammad as far as I know that he had to lead sometimes a nomadic life and used to fight against different clans .If it is true, in countries full of deserts like Arab was sufficient water available everywhere at that time?
2)What do you people do in winter?Do you follow the same rule?

In countries like India ,Pakistan and Afganistan etc. there are some places where water is very scarce.People can hardly manage to provide water for cooking and drinking. So these five times washing a day is a luxury for them ,whatever religion they belong it does not matter.
Secondly I have seen a muslim family very closely, who was my nextdoor neighbour, they used to bathe once in a week (that is in Friday/Jummah)in winter, although they were very pious ,because it was very cold in winter there and they had six children so it was not possible in the morning to bathe all of them before going to school and on fridays there were a lot of chaosEmotion: big smile form early morning.
So I think people have to change with time and place.There cannot be rigid rules.
I didn't even get your one point, do you know how much water is needed for one vozoo(practice before each pray). It's few like washing face hands arm and foot. I'm also from pakistan but I've never heared that there are some people who don't have even some water for drinking, washing face, hands, arms and foot. If it happens people go to die. Furthermore, the few places where water isn't good they use water filter. Moreover, in every mosque there is proper place for vozoo and bathing. In entire pakistan there is no mosque without water system.

I know you are Salman.I don't want to give any answer to you because you never get any one's point excecpt your own ,so it is useless to make you understand.

To Janissery: Thanks for your clarification.But I think religious rituals are different from cleanliness.Which you have said I think that is the repetation of my words that with circumstances people have to adjust as Mohammad had done when he was fighting(as he was prophet whatever he had done became another rule which was named afterwards Tayammum)
Making any part of the body wet can not be called cleaning if it is not properly washed or cleaned ,rather it is useless and I think the topic is about cleanliness.

To Nona the Brit: In my country also it is said that cleanliness is the way to Godliness

So,I'm not the only one that think that..finally.. Emotion: smile

I agree with Jhumjhum,to make religious rituals that involve washing,and to wash yourself to be clean are two different things,as a matter of fact,with the first one you want to be pure spiritually,with the second one you want to be phisically clean!!
Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
JhumJhum quoated: "I think that is the repetation of my words that with circumstances people have to adjust as Mohammad had done when he was fighting(as he was prophet whatever he had done became another rule which was named afterwards Tayammum)"

Do you think before writing something? Do you get any idea how to write?. Do you possess some knowledge how to address Prophet Mohammad (SAW)(PBUH) and his way of practice things. I've tired to say you again and again, If you think it is not necessary, so don't practice it all simple or you could describe in this way that I like my own way to keep myself clean or practice things or you could also describe the way Nyla describe that agree or disagree ,this should be, that should be not.
