What % of Muslims do you think follow Islam's hygeine rules strictly?

I know that in Islam, men are supposed to urinate squatting/sitting, and not standing, using water to clean with, wipe only with left hand, and I know of the rules about how often you must remove certain hair, how you should enter a bathroom with your left foot, etc. etc.

Do most Muslims really follow this, or do you think the majority dismiss these hygene rules?

I mean, with today's modern inventions, such as toilet paper, soap, urinals, rectify some of the issues that caused these rules to be made...


@ Patrick - well.....isn't that basically what I'm doing here?

    By looking at some of the answers here, I'm pretty sure people have nothing better to do than spend their lives trying to find a billion faults with Islam!!

    I mean, come on! Cleanliness is so important in Islam.. and the examples you gave show that. Isn't it better to use water when you clean yourself instead of just toilet paper? Removing certain hair which is unclean etc etc.

    So, to answer your question... yeah most Muslims follow this or should anyway,..

    However when you are deciding on what to follow, aren't you style of adjusting the foundations? I mean I feel I should be following my religion phrase-for-phrase, however undoubtedly i'm now not ultimate, and there are various matters I could beef up on. But I believe the faith will have to be adopted strictly when necessary. Like with matters like protecting, praying, lying and so forth. Basically, there are designated things which can be more important to comply with. I nonetheless have so much to beef up, nevertheless it quite relies on what you mean via strictly. I wouldn't wish to comply with it TOO strictly. Like I've visible some individuals who're overly strict and almost make up their own rules. I hope I made feel lol.

    I try my best to follow the rules that are mentioned in the Holy Quran, but not rules made up by people that lived about 200 years after Prophet Muhammad (a.s.)

    Islam as defined in the Quran have very flexible hygiene guidelines, the above "rules" you are referring to are a product of the sect scene and has absolutely nothing t do with Islam.

    "enter a bathroom with your left foot" seriously !!!!
