Wudu makers cleaner than 66% of Americans

wudu.jpgI saw this post that on SeekersDigest.org which linked to WebMD’s article entitled 2 out of 3 Americans Don’t Wash Hands and I found this interesting.

As Muslims we have to wash our hands, face, arms, wet our hair, back of the neck, ears and feet (aka wudu) at least a couple of times daily. Not all Muslims make wudu properly or even make wudu period. Thus, the title says ‘Wudu makers’.

Yay for wudu!

 PS – Don’t you hate losing your wudu right after you make wudu.

      This deomonstrates how wonderful Islam is. Masha’Allah how beutifal Islam is. Hamdullah for the Guidance. We have been so heedless over so many important things.

      That is really disgusting. Washing your hands in a public bathroom isn’t enough. Once you wash with hot water and soap, then dry your hands, what do you do? You grab the door handle which is full of germs. The proper way to exit a public bathroom is to open the door with your papertowel, then use your elbow to hold the door open while you toss the papertowel in the trash.

      I was involved in a little demonstration in connection to this for a Home Economics group. When people left the public bathroom, they had a special black light applied to their hands which pointed out the dirt/germs that were still on folks hands. By NOT touching the door handle, you can avoid collecting more germs.

      Yeah I usually grab a paper towel and hold the door knob.

      I’m fond of leaning on the door to make it open or kicking it open. Sorry for those on the other side.

      Assalam Alaykum,

      wait hold on a min… since when is back of the neck part of wudu?! its supposed to be front of head to back of head, not neck.

      here’s that part in my Fiqh of worship notes:

      “Wipe the head. Correct opinion is that you have to wipe the entire head. The sunnah is to go back all the way, and come back all the way(like 2 times)”

      back of head = back of neck
      same difference

      anyways check this out:
      The complete ablution (wudu)

      Yuck. Cleaning your hands isn’t just Islamic, it’s simple etiquette: it’s being respectful to yourself and the people you interact with daily.

    14. Gumbo August 31st, 2006 at 11:04 pm

      i think the worst is the rare events you actually go to a public restroom.. and then you see someone leave without washing their hands!…

      dude disgusting enough to not wash when no one is looking, but HELLO! out of embarressment or something you would think they would at least do it in front of you! gross!

      I don’t make any money from this but you might find it useful:

      Wudu Mate (portable lota)

      They ship worldwide.

      About losing your wadhu right after making it… Someone suggested jumping jacks prior to making wadhu.

      I recall a documentry about Salahudin (i think it was on Discovery Channel), and almost 80% of the scenes he was in had him washing his hands and face.

      Has anyone seen the SIenfeld episode where the cook at the restraunt goes to the washroom at the same time as Sienfeld and fails to wash his hands. Then Sienfeld tries to avoid eating the meal prepared by the cook. It is hilareous.

    20. Imran Khan September 2nd, 2006 at 11:22 pm

      I kno a kid who prays five times but picks his bugers, i guess hes part of the other 33%..

    21. Luqman September 3rd, 2006 at 8:09 pm

      I pick mine too, lol.

      Assalamualaikum,

      are you sure it’s 66%? That number seems a bit low. Every time I am in the bathroom at my college, 9 out of 10 ppl either don’t wash hands at all or they just briefly run water and rub palms for like 5 seconds. Disgusting.

      No lota is sick but I would rather them use paper than nothing at all. Public restrooms allows one to (unfortunately) hear a lot. What’s gross is when you KNOW they didn’t even use paper.

      I’m glad I don’t shake hands with men. Maybe I should start doing that for the women as well. Seriously sick…good post, thanks for the heads up.

      JazzakAllah khair
