    Beside its basic Message (modesty and faith to the Only One God) islam is a style of life and a way of consideration to everything in our environment: nature, people, animals, things, family, neighbours etc. Islam has a specific attitude concerning science and education, health, nutrition, work, defense of country, including the most refined dimensions of practical life. Islam considers specially hygiene and health in general (from the proclaimed tenets on personal hygiene keeping protection of our environment). There are numerous rules, concerning hygiene, in islam; and each of them has its practical purpose. In this paper, the author discusses certain specific topics concerning hygiene in islam (islamic hygiene); causal relations the patient-hygiene-ill; hygiene in nutrition (relating closely to healthful life, and ill prevention); and, finally, gives notes about islamic activities in the respect of human health. The author represents these activities through their practical aspect that concerns prevention of ills and good health.

    Oral hygiene in the hadiths of the Holy Prophet

    The problem of oral hygiene in contemporary dental medicine is the problem of successful maintainance of oral health. Contemporary dental medicine recommends the methods for maintaining of total oral hygiene, as preventive action against dental ills. Hadith of Holly Prophet Muhammad s.a.v.s. is a note about what he has done, recommended or amended. Holly Prophet Muhammad s.a.v.s. recommended entire hygiene of teeth, gums, through tooth brushing and washing mouths by water three times. Actually, this was the first time in the available literature that someone recommended maintaining of oral hygiene. It can be said without reserve that Muhammad s.a.v.s. has established a preventive dental medicine. Muslims are recommended to maintain hygiene through Holly Qor'an: "There are the people that like washing themselves in it (mosque), and Allah loves those, who clean themselves very much."
