    What is the relation between cleaning yourself by shaving public hair and the fitrah and revelation?

    Because these are not in scripture but a tradition of the prophets .

    And if most of the world stops cleaning themselves properly like in today’s age how Do we get them back to the sound nature?

    That is the reason why everything is not solely left to the discretion of fitrah. At first, we don’t do that for cleanliness only, we do it because it is our religion. But when you look at the rationale behind it, it is none other than tazkiya/purity. There will always be some inconsistency on application of some rulings related to fitrah also, that is why I think, that some of these have been explicitly made a part of religion. Usually when something deviates from fitrah, it itself takes the form of a tradition or becomes a norm at times; but when you point towards its deviated nature, most of the times people agree with you about the rationale behind all these cleanliness measures.

    In recent ‘Q&A session with Ghamidi Sahab from questions selected from AskGhamidi platform’


    Majority of people in the world don’t clean pubic hair and perform circumcision, then how is it to be established that it is a part of human nature / fitrat?
