Islamic Study; What is Taharah?


What is Taharah?
The Arabic word for purity and cleanliness is Taharah.
Taharah is one of the most important duties for a Muslim.

Taharah means cleanliness of the :
1) mind and soul
2) body and clothes
3) home and surroundings
We keep our minds and souls clean by not having evil thoughts nor
doing evil deeds.
We keep our bodies and clothes clean by washing them regularly.
We keep our homes and surroundings clean by being tidy and hygienic,
and not littering or polluting.

If a Muslim is not Tahir, pure and clean, then he cannot perform
Salah or touch the Noble Qur’an.
Therefore a Muslim always stays clean.
The angels are pure and clean and remain close to those who are pure
and clean.
Shaytan is impure and unclean and is always close to those who are
impure and unclean.

Allah only loves those who are pure and clean.

Cleanliness is a part of faith.
