‘Anza (Hadith No. 154)
Hadith no 153 is a repeat. Read it here.
Narrated Anas bin Malik:
Whenever Allah’s Apostle went to answer the call of nature, I along with another boy used to carry a tumbler full of water (for cleaning the private parts) and an ‘Anza (spear-headed stick).
Why, you ask? Because they had to dig and make the soil/sand soft before answering the call of nature. After doing so, they would cover the impurity with the dug up sand. ‘Anza has more uses as well. We’ll learn them with time iA.
There’s a lesson to be learnt from this. Although we don’t have to urinate on land these days, but we do have to do it in our bathrooms. Make sure you don’t leave the commode or the surroundings impure after using it. Leave it clean and dry for the next person to come. InshaAllah it’ll be a sadaqah for you. :)
