Keeping one’s body clean is of utmost importance for an amil. The pious moakils are made of noor and are sinless so they cannot stand any kind of filth or odor. Since the amil is giving a sort of an invitation to the moakkil or jinat for an agreement, hence it is the duty of an amil to avoid doing anything that would irk the moakils. The following regimen should be adhered to during an amal:
If possible, try maintaining wadhu at all times as this is a sign of a true believer also. The Prophet (s.a.w) said: “(On the Day of Resurrection) You will have notable marks ‘Al-Ghurr-ul- Muhajjalun’ which nobody amongst the people (except you) will have, you would come to me at the Cistern of al-Kauthar, with a shining forehead, bright hands and feet due to traces of ablution.’ (Muslim).
Taking a bath daily is also compulsory to do away with any type of odor coming from the arm-pits.
The private parts should be kept clean and free from hair.
The teeth should be flossed after every meal and the mouth gargled.
If you perform the amal during summers then avoid doing too much work because working will make you sweat profusely.
Make sure that the clothes worn during the amal are absolutely clean.
