Meaning of Janaba Bath for Females.
The first important thing about the Janaba Bath for females that I will explain in this article is the meaning of the Janaba bath for females. This explanation is very important for you to know because in some cases there are differences in how to do a janaba bath for men and women.
Before I explain more about the meaning of the Janaba bath for females, I want to remind you that the Janaba bath is an obligatory bath in Islam. It must be done by pouring holy water that can purify all over the body. The meaning is that all the skin of a Muslim who performs the Janaba bath must be watered.
In some cases, there are Muslims who have long hair. In general, they are Muslim women. As a result, they find it difficult to determine whether all the water they use to bathe Janab has reached their skin. I will explain the solution for the next discussion.
So, in general, we can conclude that the meaning of the Janaba bath for females that I mean in this article is a guide to doing the Janaba bath for females, especially for those who have long hair.
Obligations in Janaba Bath
The second important thing about “How to perform Janaba bath for females?” which I will explain in this article are the obligations in the Janaba bath. The obligations in the Janaba bath I mean in general. The point is that all Muslim women and Muslim men who perform the Janaba bath must do all of that. If they don’t do that, then their Janaba bath is invalid. The result is that they are not allowed to perform some rituals that require them to be in a holy state.
If we read the Islamic legal literature on Janaba bathing, then we will find an explanation that there are two obligations in Janaba bathing:
One: niyyah for the Janaba bath.
Two: pouring holy water that can purify all the skin of the body, from the scalp to the skin of the two soles of the feet.
Those are the two obligations in the Janaba bath that all Muslims must remember.
