A psychiatrist attends a seminar in Germany and surprised the audience by saying that he was treating his patients by making them wash their face 5 times a day and within a short period of time the treatment started to have an effect. They started a recovery from their illness. At the end of the speech, the doctor said, “I confess that fewer Muslims suffer from depression as they wash their hands, face, and feet many times in a day by performing WUZU.”

Blood Pressure:-
A heart specialist says with the importance that those who have high blood pressure should be advised to perform Wuzu. A Muslim doctor says, “The best cure for depression is Wuzu.” Western doctors treat their patients by placing water on some parts of their body, which is just like wuzu.

Benefits of Washing Hands:-
In Wuzu the hands are washed first and there are many benefits.
If the hands are not washed during the day, there is a possibility of getting many types of skin diseases:-Heat spots Itchy skin Bad skin Change in the skin color, etc.
When we wash our hands, water falls from the tips of our fingers and create a circle around our hand and due to this, our inner electrics come into motion, which makes our hands more beautiful

Washing the Mouth:-
By washing the mouth and using a Miswaak, the bacteria will be removed. If the mouth is not cleaned, one can be affected by the following illnesses:-

One of the first sign of aids is the swelling of the mouth
Edges of the mouth splitting
Moniliasis of the mouth and lips,
The mouth becomes sore etc.

The one who gargles water, will not get tonsillitis and he will be saved from many throat diseases including throat cancer.

Washing the nose:-
The lungs need air free from pollution and it should contain 80% moisture and should be more than 90 degrees Fahrenheit. To attain this type of air, Allah Subhana’wa’ta’ala has blessed us with a nose. It makes the air moist, the nose creates a quarter of a gallon of moisture and the hair in the nostrils stops 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 the air and enter the nose.

Due to these, a Muslim is saved from many diseases of the nose.

Washing the face:-

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 do not reach these parts, one may suffer from mental problems. Also, by washing the arms including the hands, a link is created in between the person and the particles of light and the particles begin to flow. This action makes all the body parts strong.
