Soldier of Allah 

Taharah is one of the prominent features of Islam. It means thorough purity and cleanliness of body, clothes, place and all aspects of Muslim's life.

In the foregoing pages we discussed matters of purity of faith and heart. Here we will discuss matters of purity of body and other relevant aspects of material purity and cleanliness. Islam in fact takes care of the purity of material purity of both the heart and the soul as well as the body and material aspects of life.

Muslims are called upon to be pure and clean in many of the Qur'an injunctions such as the following verse: -

"Allah loves those who turn unto Him in repentance and loves those who purify themselves." 2-222
