Defecating and Urinating ~ Hi all readers! In this article, I will explain the obligations and prohibitions for a Muslim when he is defecating. Sometimes there are some people who think that there are some things that feel better done in the bathroom. Just say, for example, reading books, talking, and so on. But, as Muslims, we must know that there are obligations and prohibitions that we must pay attention to properly because they are related to the ethics taught by Islam.
As always, before I speak more about defecating and urinating, I will quote one hadith related to our discussion.
Hadith About Defecating and Urinating
The hadith about defecating and urinating that I mean is as follows:
عَنْ جَابِرٍ رَضِيَ اللهُ عَنْهُ قَالَ : قَالَ رَسُوْلُ اللهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ : إِذَا تَغَوَّطَ الرَّجُلَانِ فَلْيَتَوَارَ كُلُّ وَاحِدٍ مِنْهُمَا عَنْ صَاحِبِهِ وَلَا يَتَحَدَّثَا فَإِنَّ اللهَ يَمْقُتُ عَلَى ذَلِكَ . رَوَاهُ أَحْمَدُ
From Jabir radliyallaahu anhu, he said, “The Messenger of Allah, sallallaahu alaihi wa sallam said, “If two people are defecating, then each of them both must close themselves so that they are not seen by their friends, and they both may not speak because Allah hates that.” The hadith is narrated by Ahmad.
All readers! You have to know that Islam is a religion that teaches all its adherents so that they are ashamed and can maintain self-esteem. In fact, these teachings must be practiced in social life. As we all know, there are many social orders that are damaged because people have no shame and cannot maintain self-esteem.
Just say, for example, the problem of prostitution, theft, robbery, and so on. In the context of the topic of this article Islam prohibits them from showing their genitals to others. Islam also forbids them from seeing aurat. In fact, Islam applies that teaching in activities carried out in the bathroom.
If we already understand the hadith above, then we at least we already know a few things as follows;
One; Islam requires that someone cover himself when he is defecating. The aim is so that no one else sees it is defecating.
