Islamic Hygiene Voodoo

Fruit Mart(A note of caution: The contents of this article might offend some readers)

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 followedMo And Hi Bedouins 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 on 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. Um Haram asked, "What makes you smile, O Allah's Apostle?" He said, "Some of my followers were presented before me in my dream as fighters in Allah's Cause, sailing in the middle of the seas like kings on the thrones or like kings sitting on their thrones." (The narrator Ishaq is not sure as to which expression was correct). Um Haram added, 'I said, "O Allah's Apostle! Invoke Allah, to make me one of them;" So Allah's Apostle invoked Allah for her and then laid his head down (and slept). Then he woke up smiling (again). (Um Haram added): I said, "What makes you smile, O Allah's Apostle?" He said, "Some people of my followers were presented before me (in a dream) as fighters in Allah's Cause." He said the same as he had said before. I said, "O Allah's Apostle! Invoke Allah to make me from them." He said, "You are among the first ones." Then Um Haram sailed over the sea during the Caliphate of Muawiya bin Abu Sufyan, and she fell down from her riding animal after coming ashore, and died.

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, uninformed 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)
  • He gave al-Hasan and al-Husayn his tongue to suck. They had been weeping from thirst and upon sucking Muhammad’s tongue they became quiet…(Ash Shifa, p.184)
  • People rubbed Muhammad’s spittle on their faces…(Ash Shifa, p.237)
  • Muhammad recommended that you can spit on your cloth and then fold it and rub it…(Sahih Muslim, 4.1121)
  • Spit three times to the left when someone questions who created Allah…(ibn Ishaq, p.270)


Incredible Islamic Hygiene

Not only that Muhammad had poor personal hygiene habits, he also recommended many of his followers to resort to extremely dirty, unhealthy, and repulsive acts.

A fasting person often develops terrible stench in his mouth. In Islam, it is considered quite a healthy habit to possess such a bad breath when a Muslim is fasting. A hadis is Sahih Bukhari (7.72.811) states that the smell of the mouth of a fasting person is better to Allah than the smell of musk. This means that a Muslim is not obliged to resort to good oral hygiene during the month of Ramadan. This also means that other people will get reward for smelling the bad odour of a fasting Muslim.

Another incredible hadis in Sunaan Abu Dawud (1.0067) states that water polluted by dead dogs, menstruating clothes and excrement of people is suitable for use for anything.

It is worthwhile to read the full hadis:

Sunaan Abu Dawud, Book 1, Number 0067:
Narrated Abu Sa'id al-Khudri:
I heard that the people asked the Prophet of Allah (peace_be_upon_him): Water is brought for you from the well of Buda'ah. It is a well in which dead dogs, menstrual clothes and excrement of people are thrown. The Messenger of Allah (peace_be_upon_him) replied: Verily water is pure and is not defiled by anything.

Another hadis in Sahih Bukhari (1.5.260) says that after sexual intercourse, clean the private parts with hand; rub the hand in wall, and then wash the hand.
Let us read this hadis in full.

Sahih Bukhari, Volume 1, Book 5, Number 260:
Narrated Maimuna:

The Prophet took the bath of Janaba. (sexual relation or wet dream). He first cleaned his private parts with his hand, and then rubbed it (that hand) on the wall (earth) and washed it. Then he performed ablution like that for the prayer, and after the bath he washed his feet.

Tere are a few more ahadith on the Islamic hygiene:

  •  If you cover your feet with dust for Allah's cause, then Allah will save them from hell fire...(SahihBad Breath Bukhari, 2.13.30)
  • If you have a bad dream then spit on your left and seek refuge from Allah…(Sahih Bukhari, 9.87.133)
  • Share a tooth pick between two persons…(Sunaan Abu Dawud, 1.0050)
  • If you touch a carcass, no need to wash your hands…(Sunaan Abu Dawud, 1.0186)
  • You can use polluted water for ablution...(Sunaan Abu Dawud, 1.0066)

Muhammad’s Sweat was Perfume

Ash Shifa (p.35) states that women collected Muhammad’s sweat, because his sweat smelled perfume. Asha shifa continues:

The messenger of Allah slept on a rug in the house of Anas and perspired. Anas’s mother brought a long﷓necked bottle in which to put his sweat. The Messenger of Allah asked her about this she said, “We put it in our perfume and it is the most fragrant of scents.”

Lest We Forget the Battle of Tours

History - Violent Jihad

Australians celebrate and revere Anzac Day on April 25th each year in remembrance of our brave soldiers who fought in two great world wars to secure our freedom. Every Australian identifies with the slogan “lest we forget” and in services held around the country people reflect on the battles and men who died to secure our freedom. Yet across the world in France, there is one remarkable battle which helped form the Europe we know today and allowed the development of civilization based on Judeo Christian principles. This one famous battle has become known as the battle of Tours and effectively stopped the Muslim advance into Europe. After the death of Mohammed in 632AD, Muslim armies exploded out of the Arabian peninsula to conquer much of the Middle East, expanding across north Africa. From there they crossed into Spain in 711AD and eventually controlled much of al-Andalus by 715AD. It was the victory at Tours by Charles Martel that stemmed the tide and eventually the Muslim marauders were expelled from Spain in 1492 when the last outpost at Granada fell to King Ferdinand of Spain.

He was and continues to be an icon for the classes and masses alike and is seen as a rallying point for peasants oppressed by foreign rulers, Pathans and Moghuls alike. Sexually exploited women found in Shivaji Raje a protector, a benefactor and flocked to his Hindavi Swaraj to find solace and feel liberated under his saffron flag.

Barbary Corsair
Somalian Islamic Pirates & Lessons from History
The dramatic rescue of the American cargo-ship captain Richard Phillips from the hands of Somalian Islamic pirates by the U.S. Navy—killing three pirates, holding him hostage at gun-point, through precision-targeting—warrants a review of the U.S. struggle with piracy and hostage-taking in North Africa, which ended two centuries ago.

Raiding trade-caravans and hostage-taking for extracting ransom in Islam was started by Prophet Muhammad. Having become powerful and secure after his relocation to Medina from Mecca in 622, Muhammad initiated Jihad or holy war in the form of raids of trade-caravans for earning livelihood for his community. In the first successful raid of a Meccan caravan at Nakhla in December 623, his brigands killed one of the attendants, took two of them captive, and acquired the caravan as “sacred” booty. The captives were ransomed to generate further revenue. Muhammad, later on, expanded this mode of Jihad to raiding non-Muslim communities around Arabia—for capturing their homes, properties and livestock, capturing their women and children as slaves often for ransoming and selling, and imposing extortional taxes—which sometimes involved mass-slaughter of the attacked victims.

The First Islamic Terrorist Attack on Australian Soil
On January 1, 1915 two Broken Hill men, both former camel drivers, armed themselves with rifles, an homemade flag bearing Islamic insignia and a large supply of ammunition and launched a surprise attack on the Picnic Train about 3 kilometres outside Broken Hill.

The train carried about 1200 Broken Hill residents to Silverton where a picnic to celebrate the new year was to take place.

The two Muslim men, Gool Mohamed originally a Pashtun tribesman from Afghanistan and Mullah Abdullah from what is known today as Pakistan, decided to wage jihad against Australian infidels after Australia and the Ottoman Empire officially joined the opposite sides in the WWI.

And when you mention the killings and massacres, you are told that the Spanish Inquisition was much worse.
This is a misconception, since the Inquisition in Spain was responsible for only between 4,000 and 5,000 lives. [1]

Yet in 1066AD, in a single day, muslims murdered over 4,000 Jews because Vizier Joseph ibn Naghrela had risen to a position greater than them, and of course, this upset the Muslim sensitivities. [2]

Decisive Victory for the West

At this time of year, it is timely to remember one of the greatest victories of the west against the Islamic world. On the 7th October in 1571, Don Juan and the Holy League, led by Admiral Doria, defeated the larger Ottoman fleet in the Battle of Lepanto, saving Europe from the Turks and militant Islam. The Holy League was a coalition of different armies - of the Republic of Venice, the Papacy (under Pope Pius V), Spain (including Naples, Sicily and Sardinia), the Republic of Genoa, the Duchy of Savoy, the Knights Hospitaller and some others.

When Mohamed and his faithful followers moved from Mecca to Medina, they found themselves among three Jewish tribes/clans (BANU-L-NADIR, BANU KAINUKA and BANU KURAIZA)  which settled there some time after their expulsion from their homeland and also living there were  two Arab, pagan tribes.

Mohammed, who at this stage needed more followers, decided to win those tribes over and convert them to his newly invented religion.

Islam was yet not as fully developed as we know it today, and Mohammed was still having his sessions with Allah (the Medina period revelations).
