Abstract There are secrets to the orders and rules of God that have manifested in religion or religious practices. Cleanliness and hygiene, especially through ablution, are essential issues in worshiping God. Physical cleanliness is viewed as the way for reaching inner decency. There are two types of benefits to ablution: moral/spiritual and health. The immaculate man is favored by God and as God states in Quran: “immaculate and clean man can benefit from the content of Quran”. Washing hands and face, at least three times daily, has significant effects on physical hygiene and washing the head and feet in water stimulates the nervous system in these organs. Today, it is a proven fact in neurophysiology that neural stimulation raises the level of awareness. One of the health benefits laid in ablution is that the body parts washed in ablution make up 20% of the body surface area but a major portion of brain cortex is stimulated by this simple act. Ablution, in addition to inner purity and spiritual refinement, increases physical cleanliness, triggers the central nervous system stimulation, and raises the awareness level.
