Janabah Bathing Guide for Thick Haired People

Islamic Rule Studies: Janabah Bathing Guide for Thick Haired People ~ Hi all readers! In the previous article I explained about the method of Janabah bathing that the Prophet Muhammad had done. We also knew that this was the most important method, because he had done it. Well, in this article I will explain about the jinn bath guide for people with guessed hair. As a Muslim, we must know about this, because what is an important point in janabah bath is the arrival of water on all skin of the body. The question is, how do thick-haired people do that? Of course, thick hair will be the main barrier to the arrival of water on all skin.

As always, before I explain this theme further, I will quote one hadith that is specifically related to this theme. Pay attention!

عَنْ أُمِّ سَلَمَةَ رَضِيَ اللهُ تَعَالَى عَنْهَا قَالَتْ : قُلْتُ ، يَا رَسُوْلَ اللهِ إِنِّيْ اِمْرَأَةٌ أَشَدُّ شَعْرَ رَأْسِيْ أَفَنْقُضُهُ لِغُسْلِ الْجَنَابَةِ ؟ وَفِيْ رِوَايَةٍ وَالْحَيْضَةِ . قَالَ : لَا إِنَّمَا يَكْفِيْكَ أَنْ تَحْثِي عَلَى رَأْسِكَ ثَلَاثَ حَثَيَاتٍ . رَوَاهُ مُسْلِمٌ

From Ummu Salamah radliyallaahu anhaa, she said, “I once said, “O Messenger of Allah, actually I am a woman who has very thick head hair. Do I have to pull it to bathe Janabah? In a history mentioned, “And menstruation.” He replied, “No! You only need to water it with three hands.” The hadith is narrated by Muslim.

If we observe the hadith above, then we will know that people with thick hair are not obliged to attract them to bathe in Janabah. But before I make a conclusion about this, I will first explain about differences of opinion among experts on Islamic law on this issue. Pay attention!

One; Abu Hanifah said, that women are not obliged to pull their hair to do janabah bath, while men must pull their hair.

Two; Ahmad said, that pulling hair is not mandatory for bathing in Janabah, but it must be done for bathing because of menstruation and blood of childbirth.

Three; Malik said, that pulling hair is mandatory.

Four; Ash-Shafi’i said, that pulling hair is recommended if the hair is thin, but if the hair is thick, then thick hair must be pulled.

All readers! That’s the difference of opinion among Islamic law experts about how to bathe Janabah if someone has thick hair. After we know the difference of opinion, I don’t need to make a single conclusion. We can use anyone’s opinion! It’s all up to us.

Now, do you understand? If you want to ask, please ask!

I think that is enough for this article, about Janabah bathing guide for thick haired people. May be useful! Amen!
