Islam being the deen (religion) of Allah and Islamic teaching based upon Quranic words and Hadeeth (actions and sayings of the last prophet in Islam) imparts and focuses on the significance of appearing beautiful inside out. By performing these rituals and practices the person especially women can enhance their beauty, ambiance and elegance.

When a person performs wudu or ablution, he performs 26 precise movements 5 times a day and this prescription is for optimum health and vigor. Allah says in Quran:

“O ye who believe! When ye prepare for prayer, wash your faces, and your hands (and arms) to the elbows; Rub your heads (with water); and (wash) your feet to the ankles. If ye are in a state of ceremonial impurity, bathe your whole body. But if ye are ill, or on a journey, or one of you cometh from offices of nature, or ye have been in contact with women, and ye find no water, then take for yourselves clean sand or earth, and rub therewith your faces and hands, Allah doth not wish to place you in a difficulty, but to make you clean, and to complete his favor to you, that ye may be grateful.” (Surah Maida :6)
