(h/t: Answering Muslims)

No matter what anybody says, wash BOTH hands thoroughly after touching anything dirty, and before handling foods or beverages. Seems that the uneducated and illiterate Muhammad must have been unfamiliar with soap, which was certainly not a new invention – having been used in Babylon as early as 2800 BC.

Muhammad on Personal Hygiene (Science and Islam)

Published on Mar 13, 2014 by Acts17Apologetics
Muslims often went to Muhammad for advice on various topics. His advice, however, wasn’t always sound. According to Muhammad, it’s perfectly safe to use water from a source that has human waste or dead animals floating in it. Muhammad promoted dunking flies in one’s food, in order to get the cure for the diseases that flies carry. Needless to say, these teachings are quite dangerous. Fortunately, Muhammad’s modern followers don’t take them seriously.

Writes David Wood:

Here are the sources I quoted in this video:

Sunan Abu Dawud 67—I heard that the people asked the Prophet of Allah: Water is brought for you from the well of Buda’ah. It is a well in which dead dogs, menstrual cloths and excrement of people are thrown. The Messenger of Allah replied: Verily water is pure and is not defiled by anything.

Sunan Ibn Majah 520—It was narrated that Jabir bin Abdullah said: “We came to a pond in which there was the carcass of a donkey, so we refrained from using the water until the Messenger of Allah came to us and said: ‘Water is not made impure by anything.’ Then we drank from it and gave it to our animals to drink, and we carried some with us.”

Sahih al-Bukhari 5782—Allah’s Messenger said, “If a fly falls in the vessel of any of you, let him dip all of it (into the vessel) and then throw it [i.e. the fly] away, for in one of its wings there is a disease and in the other there is healing (antidote for it) i.e. the treatment for that disease.”

Musnad Ahmad 16245—[Mua’wiya said]: I saw the prophet sucking on the tongue or the lips of Al-Hassan son of Ali, may the prayers of Allah be upon him. For no tongue or lips that the prophet sucked on will be tormented (by hell fire).

On a side note, since Muslims want to argue that there’s something miraculous about Islam, perhaps they can make an argument based on Muhammad’s teachings about personal hygiene. A Muslim could always argue that it’s a miracle that Muhammad and his followers survived his teachings about personal hygiene, and that Allah must have been miraculously preserving Muhammad and the early Muslim community!
