‘Faraq’ (Hadith No. 250)
The Prophet and I used to take a bath from a single pot called ‘Faraq’.
Points to notice:
- No discrimination whatsoever. Husband can use the left-overs of his wife and vice versa.
- One pot was enough for two people to take a bath. What excellent water-savers they were!
- It somehow implies the spouses taking a bath/shower together.
- Taking a bath from a tub/bucket/pot full of water is a Sunnah. Shower can be used too, of course.
