The Holy Qur'an says: "O ye who believe, eat of the good things we have provided for you, and render thanks to Allah, if it is He Whom you worship.

Cleanliness is the most important aspect to good hygiene and Islam teaches that the condition of the body affects the condition of the spirit, and thus great care should be taken to keep one's body healthy and fit.

The practice of Islam helps you maintain habitual cleanliness and self-discipline

Islam teaches two ways of cleaning the body, ablution and bathing.

Muslims are commanded to perform the ritual washing of certain parts of the body in preparation for salaat.

For ablution:

The Holy Qur'an says: "O you who believe! When you rise up for prayer, wash your faces and your hands as far as the elbows, and wipe your heads, and (wash) your feet up to the ankles." (5:7)

For bathing:

The Holy Qur'an says:

"Allah loves those who keep themselves clean." (2:223)

Many health hazards can be avoided with these hygienic practice promoted by Islam.
