Bathing and Urinating in Water that Does Not Flow According to Islam ~ Hi All! In this article, I will explain the law of bathing and urinating in non-flowing water. Of course, we all know what is meant by non-flowing water? What is meant by water that does not flow here is water that is in a pond, bucket, or the like, where the amount of water is not until two Qullah. I explained the explanation in the previous article. So, I don’t need to repeat it again.

As always, before I speak more about bathing and urinating in water that does not flow according to Islam, I want to quote a hadith related to our discussion.

Hadith Bathing and Urinating in Water that Does Not Flow

The hadith about bathing and urinating in water that does not flow that I mean is the hadith below;

عَنْ أَبِيْ هُرَيْرَةَ رَضِيَ اللهُ عَنْهُ قَالَ : قَالَ رَسُوْلُ اللهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ : لَا يَغْتَسِلُ أَحَدُكُمْ فِيْ الْمَاءِ الدَّائِمِ وَهُوَ جُنُبٌ . أَخْرَجَهُ مُسْلِمٌ . وَلِلْبُخَارِيِّ : لَا يَبُوْلَنَّ أَحَدُكُمْ فِيْ الْمَاءِ الَّذِيْ لَا يَجْرِيْ ثُمَّ يَغْتَسْلُ فِيْهِ . وَلِمُسْلِمٍ مِنْهُ . وَلِأَبِيْ دَاوُدَ : وَلَا يَغْتَسِلُ فِيْهِ مِنَ الْجَنَابِةِ

From Abu Hurairah radliyallaahu anhu, he said, “Allah’s Messenger shallallahu alaihi wa sallam said, “Let no one of you take a bath in water that does not flow when he flies junub.” The hadith is narrated by the Musli priest. Imam al-Bukhari and Muslim priests narrated a similar hadith, “One of you may not urinate in water that does not flow then he bathes in it.” Abu Daud had a history of hadith that read, “A person must not bathe in non-flowing water while he is in junub.”

If we observe the hadith above, we will be able to conclude a number of things as follows;

One; Junub bathing should not be done in non-flowing water.

Two; Junub bathing in non-flowing water cannot make the water unclean, but it can damage its purity so it cannot be used for washing.

Three; Urinating in non-flowing water can damage the nature of the water.
