In Case Of A Screen (Hadith No. 147)


After reading Hadith no 146, a lot of people complain that the commode seats in our bathroom are situated in such a way that we cannot help but face the Qiblah. What should we do? Well, get the solution today..

Volume 1, Book 4, Number 147:

Narrated ‘Abdullah bin ‘Umar:

People say, “Whenever you sit for answering the call of nature, you should not face the Qibla or Bait-ulMaqdis (Jerusalem).” I told them. “Once I went up the roof of our house and I saw Allah’s Apostle answering the call of nature while sitting on two bricks facing Bait-ul-Maqdis (Jerusalem) but there was a screen covering him. ‘

So, there’s no harm in facing the Qiblah while answering the call of nature until you have a screen/wall. The condition prescribed in the previous Hadith is for open grounds (custom in old Arabia).

Problem solved? :)


East Or West (Hadith No. 146)


There’s a simple rule in this Hadith related to answering the call of nature in an open space. It’s true that we don’t encounter such situations these days. We get walled bathrooms everywhere. But, knowing this is important nevertheless. Any exceptional situation may arise and you’ll get confused. So, to avoid that, remember this:

Volume 1, Book 4, Number 146:

Narrated Abu Aiyub Al-Ansari:

Allah’s Apostle said, “If anyone of you goes to an open space for answering the call of nature he should neither face nor turn his back towards the Qibla; he should either face the east or the west.”

Easy? :)
