Abu Huraira(radi allahu anho) reported: Allah’s Messenger said: When a bondsman-a Muslim or a believer-washes his face (in course of ablution), every sin he contemplated with his eyes, will be washed away from his face along with water, or with the last drop of water; when he washes his hands, every sin they wrought will be effaced from his hands with the water, or with the last drop of water; and when he washes his feet, every sin towards which his feet have walked will be washed away with the water or with the last drop of water with the result that he comes out pure from all sins.

Sahih Muslim,The Book of Purification


The Medical benefits of Wudhu

In a scientific study carried out by a number of medical professors of a university of one of the Arab Muslim countries it was confirmed that a person who performs Wudu’ (Ritual Ablution) five times a day cleanses his nose from germs, dust and other connected things. It was also confirmed that those who do not perform Wudu’ (Ritual Ablution) are more liable to a number of different kinds of germs, nearly 11 kinds of germs.

Benefits of washing the hands

In Wudhu , the hands are washed first and there are many benefits.People hold many things in their hands causing bacteria to spread and grow.If the hands are not washed during the day,there is a possibility of getting many kind of skin diseases.

When we wash our hands,rays come out from the tips of our fingers and create a circle around our hand and due to this,our inner electrics come to motion,which make our hands more beautiful.
Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said: “All the descendants of Adam are sinners, and the best of sinners are those who repent."

Benefits of Washing the mouth

First the hands are washed therefore they become clean from bacteria.

If the hands were not washed properly the bacteria would travel into the stomach via the mouth causing many illnesses in the stomach.

Due to air many germs travel into our mouth and some bacteria stay in the mouth from bits of food left in between the teeth.

If the mouth is not washed or cleaned properly including using a miswaak.These illnesses might occur.

Like:

Swelling of the mouth as a first sign of AIDS.(Usually it takes about 8 to 10 years to notice symptoms of AIDS).or Thrush and mouth lesions.

Moniliasis(is an infection of the mouth caused by a yeast called Candida albicans) of the mouth and lips.

If the person is not fasting it is sunnah to gargle.The one who gargles water will not get Tonsillitis(an infection of the tonsils and will often, but not necessarily, cause a sore throat and fever) and will be saved from many throat illnesses.
 
Benefits of washing the nose

The lungs need air free from from pollution and it should contain 80% moisture and should be more than 90 degrees Fahrenheit(32 C).
To attain this type of air,Allah has blessed us with a nose.
To make the air moist,the nose creates a quarter of a gallon of moisture and the hair in the nostrils stop dirt going inside the lungs.
There is a microscopic brush in the nose.This brush contains small particles which kill the bacteria that travel through air and enter the nose.These particles also defend lysozium (are a family of enzymes which damage bacterial cell walls by catalyzing hydrolysis....), which also assist and save the eyes from infection.

Due to rinsing of the nose regurarly with water in wudhu.The nose is cleaned from dirt so the risk of illnesses is minimized. It is very beneficial for a person to do "Ghusl of the nose"(to sniff water up the nose)if he/she is suffering from catarrh

Benefits of Washing the arms

There are three major veins in the elbow that are connected to the heart ,liver and the brain.
The elbow usually stays covered with clothing and if water and air does not reach these parts,one may suffer from mental problems.
When the moisture reaches to these veins in the elbow it strengthens the heart,liver and the brain.
Also by washing the arms including the hands,a link is created in between the person and the particles of light and so the particles begin to flow making all the body parts strong.

Benefits of wiping the head

There is a major vein in the body that lies between the back of the head and the neck. This vein has connection with the spinal cord,the brain and the small veins throughout in the body.

When one wipes the back of his neck,the rays from his hands are passed in to the spinal cord and the small veins causing various body parts to strengthen.

The brain sends out signals to the body so the body functions.
Our brain is always floating in the fluid.This is why we are always moving and it does not affect the brain.

If the brain was rigid it would have collapsed by now. Some small veins run from the brain to the back of our neck,which then run to the rest of our body. Wiping the neck prevents one from fever.

This is one of those "no duh" moments.  The Jews and the Muslims did not suffer during the black plague like the Christians because they bathed regularly.   Blame it on the Europeans to lose the idea of cleanliness.  LOL  I mean we were a religion that your starting act is BAPTISM.

The lack of bathing in Europe was most likely due to the cold weather there. When you live in a warm climate, bathing isn't a big deal.  When you live in the cold dousing yourself in water 5 times a day isn't the smartest thing to do.
