Defecating and Urinating; Obligations and Prohibitions for Muslim

Guidelines Islamic Rule: Defecating and Urinating ~ Hi all readers! In this article I will explain about 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 further, I would like to invite all of you to examine the hadith below;

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.

Defecation and Urination on the Road According to Islam

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 theme 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.

Two; Islam strictly prohibits someone from speaking in the bathroom because that would be the cause of the coming of Allah Taala’s wrath. Because of that the Prophet Muhammad never answered the greetings delivered by someone when he was urinating, even though the law of answering greetings was mandatory.

Three; An explanation of the coming of Allah’s wrath to the person who spoke when he was defecating or urinating became the confirmation of the law.

What I know, in Islam, is that the penis and buttocks are part of the body that must be closed. Both cannot be seen by others. In addition, both of them also include genitals which must be closed when a Muslim is praying or reading the Qur’an.

After I explaind the information above, do you understand? The problem is simple and the information that I have submitted is very clear. So, I hope you understand. But, if you don’t understand, please ask!

I think that is enough for this article about obligations and prohibitions for Muslim on defecating and urinating according to Islam. May be useful! Amen!
